Over The Top Louboutin Promposal Goes Viral

April 26, 2017

Remember back in high school when Prom season would roll around? What kind of dress are you going to wear? Are you going to rent a Limo with a bunch of friends? Where's the after party? And of course, the most important question, who's going to be your date?

I graduated from high school in 1997, which if you're doing the math that's 20-years-ago this June. Eek! I went to my sophomore party, junior prom, and senior proms. It was a big to-do back in the day. But now preparing for the prom has gone way over the top. Parents are dropping many hundreds of dollars on designer dresses and glam squads to make sure their little Princess looks perfect on prom night. 

And asking someone to the prom has become this huge event too. The word promposal wasn't even in our vernacular when I was in high school. It's a well-planned out, over-the-top, or creative way to ask someone to be your date. 

A Houston teen decided to blow the girl he was asking to proms mind by buying her designer shoes and makeup. And by designer, I mean Christian Louboutin's! I guess the saying "go big, or go home applies" here! 

The photos and story have gone viral because people are just blown away. There are lots of tweets in response to the over-the-top proposal, but my favorite is the one below. 

And if you were wondering, the shoes cost about $675 before tax! Cha-ching!
