Ya. Converse shoes don't go with a formal dress ( coming from a guy )sorry. You should probably wear heels if you have any. Or, you can wear something that is similar to heels, hope you find this helpful:)
Ahh, I remember my first school dance and I wore my vans with my dress and my mom told me the same thing. Don't worry. Some people will like it some people will hate. It just matters that you like them
lol you got one awesome mom just saving i think it is cool your mom is rocking converses girl your mom has style or just really cool i wish my mom liked converses =) smile you gotta think your mom is really cool to wear converses :)
Wear what your mom says for the pictures and entrance, and then do what what I told my daughter to do-BRING FLIP FLOPS and/or nice GYM SHOES to dance and have fun in. Your whole night will be ruined with those other uncomfortable shoes. DON'T LIE about it to your mom! Promise her the pictures taken at the prom will look nice and be VERY RESPECTFUL to her and even ask her for help. This moment means a lot to her too-we moms are just that way. My daughter and I went and bought ribbon to tie her nice gym shoes up with that matched the dress and wrapped the flip flops in matching ribbon. She got so many compliments and even started a trend for the next year!! She still talks about it years later. Girls stopped wearing high heels during the whole prom and hasn't been done for a long while, but ASK your mom to compromise with you so you'll both remember it as a good memory. THAT is the MOST important part. I understand how you both feel.
