We would like to congratulate Nkechi Enwereji, Takia Gadsden, and Mariama Kamara on winning the Paul Mitchell, The School makeovers. The girls will have a hair and makeup styling for their prom nights. Stay tuned for full coverage of the girls' prom experiences.

Also, coming up this week, the best prom dresses for Prom Season 2010.

DCPS Boutique Day was a huge success. Every single girl that attended the event, walked away with a beautiful dress or gown that not only looked amazing on them but will be absolutely perfect for their grand entrance on their prom night. Robin and I were ecstatic. We totally enjoyed working with all of the girls; helping each one find that oh so perfect dress. We will be following three lucky girls, who won the Paul Mitchel giveaway, on the day of their prom. So look for that post coming soon.

We owe a big thanks to Delores Holloway at A Little Bit of Whimsy Photography Studio, for taking amazing photographs at the event. She is the genius behind this tear-jerking video from the event. Enjoy!

We would like to thank everyone that sponsored a dress for Kissing Frogs. We received over 30+ sponsors. Your support helped to raise money for the Project Stitch Studio at West Potomac Academy in Alexandria, VA.

In addition, the dresses were donated to the DC Public Schools Prom Boutique Day, which took place yesterday. The event was a huge success and you should pat yourselves on the back for helping to make that possible.

Please check back on the site early next week for pictures of the DCPS Prom Boutique Day. Also, three lucky girls were chosen to have a hair and makeup makeover by Paul Mitchell - The School. We will be following these three girls to chronicle their prom experience from beginning to end. So stay tuned for that special series!

We love you all,
