Like me, you were probably watching Glee’s prom episode Tuesday night. And maybe, like me, you were wishing you’d had the prom experience you always thought you would. Mercedes said it perfectly when she said she may not need a man, but she’d always dreamed of standing under the crepe paper streamers and having a guy tell her how beautiful she looked. I wanted that too, girl.
Now, thanks to Converse, you can feel like the prettiest girl at the dance — without needing someone to tell you you are. At Converse.com, you can design your own “Prom” sneaker in satin or patent leather. The shoes cost a slightly hefty $80, but I’m dreaming about them more than the perfect prom date.
