formal cover up - October 14th 2010, 11:25 AM

I've been trying not to cut, but I slipped up a few days ago. My problem is, I realized I have my homecoming dance on Saturday. I looked at the cover-up thing in the resources and I can't really wear armbands to the dance so I don't really know what to do for cover up. : /

Well, depends on your dress. Some dresses, you can wear long gloves, satin or lace. Sometimes you can wear a shawl.

For example:


Or, if you don't like either option, find some cover-up thats sweatproof/waterproof, perhaps.

Hope you have fun at your homecoming!

One thing that also works is getting a lightweight cardigan that goes with your dress and wearing it over top. You can get away with it since it's fall and beginning to get really cold - especially at nights. And you can still see your dress with it.

There's also special cover up - as mentioned below that is made specially for scars or waterproof.

Another way would be to get small gloves or maybe even a corsage? I know people were a bunch of corsages at the homecoming in my school this year - and it'll probably cover it and serve as a distraction.

Up until this Saturday though, try to moisturize as MUCH as you can. Those vitamins and such that are in most moisturizers will help heal them.

Since the date of the event this thread is about has passed, I'm going to close the thread. PM me if you want it reopened.
