Fashion Re-Do:

Hey guys! Now, before I begin, I’d like to remind you that it really helps if you send in your fashion questions. It can be anything! I was forced to delve into my past experiences once more for you this week, but hopefully next week I’ll have a question to answer. Check out the Be A Part! page to find my email. Thank you!

Now, on to the Re-Do!

Seeing as it’s just about that time of year, I’ve decided to devote this weeks Re-Do to prom. That’s right, prom!

Last year, I was running tight on my budget so I was able to pull together some cheap fix-it’s to make the perfect prom for me.

The Dress:

Dresses for prom do not come cheap. That is, unless, you buy one from Goodwill! This is exactly what I did. I recommend going in January, and looking closely. I almost missed my dress! Also, keep in mind that you will be spending ten dollars at the most so any alterations will be no problamo! You’d be amazed at what you will find. I altered my dress myself, and had a blast doing it.

The Flowers:

For this crisis I did the easiest thing I could think of: fake flowers and ribbon. I had them laying around my room, but believe me, it’s so easy to find the perfect flower that will last forever, and it’s relatively inexpensive.

For the boutonniere, just take a swatch from your dress to match the color of the flower and the ribbon. You’ll probably need about 4 yds. of ribbon depending on its width and pick a flower bud that is no taller than your thumb. The stem length does not matter as you will cut off most of it, leaving an inch and a half left from the bud. This is the time where you take the ribbon and wind it around and around until it reaches about half and inch onto the bottom of the bud. Make sure there is no stem showing and that it looks pleasant to your eyes.

For the corsage, I recommend taking a wide ribbon and making a bow (as fancy a bow as you’d like) attached to a hair tie. Make the bow about medium size and make sure it coordinates with the boutonniere and the dress.

Always remember that the best way to the perfect prom is to just have fun. Don’t stress over your image! The more fun you have, the better you’ll look!

I hope this was helpful to all you prom goers! If you have any more questions, please email me! My email can be found on the Be A Part! page.

The Story:

Hey everyone! Glad you’re still reading. Now, onto the main event:

What it Means to be a Beaumont

By Miss Maggie Mae Kay

The Real Beginning.

It all started with a glass of wine, gratefully held up to a pair of painted red lips. The owner of the lips was down to the fringe of her sanity. Surrounding her was the cackling, cawing group of gossips known as either the stereo-typical woman, or the potential in-laws. She didn’t care too much for this part of a relationship. Meeting families always annoyed her. She was not a typical woman, nor did she ever plan on being one.

“So, Miss Margaret,” The mother of the household said with her southern twang. “I know that you and my Mathias met at work, but what is it that you exactly do? Are you a receptionist of sorts?”

This had been what she was afraid of. This was the moment of truth. This was a family built on the southern tradition of the wife and mother, the sexist charm of staying at home while the husband slaved to bring home the bacon. They would not approve of her. Margaret was well aware of this, so that was not the issue. It was how they would show their disapproval.

“I work alongside Mathias in the lab.” She said in her cool New England accent. She was not ashamed of a single thing.

“Oh! A lab assistant! How exciting!” Mrs. Cleaver responded. Margaret shook her head.

“No, no. I’m a scientist, ma’am. I have been doing some work on something called genetics along with your son.” The table was silent. This was, surprisingly, a good reaction. This meant that they were confused and not offended.

“Oh, uh, well…” The mother was at a loss for words. “Well Miss Beaumont, you are quite the visionary.”

“Thank you ma’am, and its Doctor Beaumont.”

“Doctor? Doctor of what?”

“Biology.” She had them hooked. Hooked! She couldn’t believe it! They were actually astonished by her success. Margaret was going to be a part of the Cleaver family.

“So, have you thought of a date yet for the wedding?” Margaret asked casually to her fiancé as she carefully mixed some chemicals in an Erlenmeyer flask.

“How about May 6, 1944,” he said with a fake British accent. Mathias looked over to see her smile. Her eyes widened as the contents turned purple and she began to stir.

“May sixth sounds lovely dear.” She narrowed her eyes and smirked. “I think I’ve found something.”

To be continued….

Well that concludes this week’s post! Please check out the Be A Part! page and send me your fashion questions. Keep an eye open next week for The Third {OFFICIAL POST}!

This is Miss Maggie Mae Kay signing off.
