    Our prom was great! Lol the graduation took forever, but the dresses were amazing!
    i wore stilleto's to the last one and my feet are still recovering!
    I did as well- but was fine! wore them from 5:30 in the afternoon till 8:30 in the morning! Lol was a nice way to end school, even though it was well over a month ago- doesn't time fly?!

    stilleto's....hmm mine aren't the most comfortable this year either, i can forsee myself having to be seat-ridden by 9pm! my friend had stupidly high heels last year, and after several martinis/lemonades she was on the dancefloor about 5 inches shorter...that'll be me this year

    One word comes to mind: pathetic. I'm sure your prom was wicked but what's this trend of copying the Americans' social habits?
    Socially, the Americans are so different from the Brits.

    I think some people just watch a bit too many crap American shows and imagine they represent the real America. If they were realistic, the Americans wouldn't bother watching them...

    nothing wrong in an after-party i don't think, whether it's copying 'fake' american culture or not. if it's what people want to do, let them do it. other cultures are becoming more integrated every day
