Hey Vicki Jakes, thank you! I’m so glad you shared all this — exactly why I wrote this post: I want people to feel inspired to do this! And yes, you should definitely throw yourself a party! Have you seen the movie “Pretty in Pink”? If so, this next reference might resonate with you: the main character, Andie, is ditched by her date but she goes to her prom anyway, rocking it out in a dress she makes herself.
