Emerald Belle of the Prom!

I have raised a child to adulthood. I feel pretty damn good about that!

As we quickly approaching graduation (you can call me MomofaGator, thanks!), one event not to be missed by my daughter was her senior prom. (I didn't get to go to mine....tiny bit jealous).

I couldn't help but think it was cool that she chose an Emerald green gown, especially since it is Pantone's color of the year!

My daughter will laugh at me, saying she just looks good in this color (which she does). And that her choices have nothing to do with fashion.....I can't help but think of this scene from The Devil Wears Prada:

I also delight in my daughter going to prom because I get to work on her hair, nails and makeup! Triple win!

My beautiful girl! Earrings/Necklace combo made by myself, using Swarovski crystals/beads and Bali silver.
