This isn’t my prom. I graduated last school year and am currently attending college. My boyfriend’s a senior in high school, and it’s his prom I’ll be going to.
Not that that really changes much. I went to my own prom with my friends in a $30 dress that probably would have been better for a sweet sixteen party or junior prom, and it was fine. However, since I’m not going for me this time, I kind of don’t want to embarrass my boyfriend.
The second qipao, which is sleeveless, cream colored with red trim and red and gold designs was the dress I wore to graduation, but that doesn’t matter because no one really saw it under my grad gown, and my grandma had bought it for my mom and I to share when she visited family in China.
Lovelies, do you think a qipao is appropriate for prom? Have any of you ever worn a more ethnically traditional dress to a formal event?
