And none of them seemed to be happy conversations.
They disagreed about what looked good.
They disagreed about what looked bad.
They disagreed on pretty much everything, I think.
Why is shopping for prom filled with so much angst, especially when a mother is involved? Is it that tastes differ so differently between generations? Is it the daughter wanting to have control and the mother not wanting to give it to her? I remember getting in dressing room arguments with my mom, but I don't really remember why. It almost seemed like if she liked something, I was intent on not liking it. Based on principle alone, maybe?
Did you or do you shop well with your mom? Have any prom dress shopping horror stories to share? I can't even remember shopping for my dress. Perhaps it was such a bad experience I blocked it out?
