Like most girls their age, Woodrow Wilson High School junior Emilee Withrow, left, Oak Hill High School junior Rebecca Johnson, center, and Shady Spring High School junior Preston Caperton all began planning their perfect prom experiences early in January. Rebecca models a sweet tangelo lace dress by Flirt. Her school’s prom theme is fairytale-inspired: “Far, Far Away.” Although Emilee models a color-popping style by Riva in Caribbean blue, she settled on a gauzy, white gown for herself months ago, choosing the first dress she tried on at Harvey’s Fashions and Bridal. This year, she will attend two proms — a Vegas-themed WWHS prom and her date’s “Rave” prom at Shady Spring High School. Preston Caperton sports a Tony Bowles high/low pink chiffon dress from Harvey’s Fashions and Bridal. She says the most popular places to eat dinner before prom in Raleigh County are Fujiyama and Kimono Kin.
