I know that everyone at my coming out did. Maybe wearing color is a North American thing?

where I grew up (american south) white was also traditional...I don't know maybe it's a local thing.

the bit about the dress at least intrigued me - one of my best friends used to always whine and complain about "oh my parents are insisting I have a deb ball...what a stupid idea! who wants a silly dress anyway?" and I'd feel like whacking her for being so unappreciative.

hm.. well, we have a cotillon club that wears all white and gulf coast debutante society as well as the new orleans ones that wear white, so when my school started their's, they decided to allow white and color, and i'd wear white, but my twin's dress is white with pink crystals (the s name but i'd misspell it so..) all over it so.. yeah i'm stuck w/ color... i'm wearing white for my senior year one and the few in college.

Could you wear a white dress with different colored beadwork or accents?

from what i recall, someone (i could care less who) wore this christian dior haute couture dress to the bal des debutantes... sans sweater, camisole, drag makeup and legwarmers it looked great



but this is off-topic now isn't it.

...How about everyone just goes the easier way and requests to the D&G or Versace for a dress to borrow? That's much easier and you don't have to pay. They'll give it to you to wear so as long as you give it back in mint condition - who knows, they might just give it to you as a gift, too. Anyway...hope I helped some.

politesociety... you can do that? I would have no idea who to call or write for that sort of thing- if they did let me borrow one could I tailor it a little because I have a small waist and a very large chest (like under 30 inches with 38 D/DD)... I was thinking about changing into a red chiffon bcbg number for after so... private me please?

I think it would be rare for a big house to lend you out a dress if there wasn't going to be any press coverage of the event. And even rarer for them to let you tailor it.
