After Gypsy's thread, I totally want to see everyone's prom dresses! Bad hair, taffeta bows, lace gloves? I wanna see it all! State the year (decade at least!) you wore it, for reference!

I'll start... Mine was a mint green, but it photographed almost white. I had a thing for gloves... I wanted to look like I was wearing something vintage.. Worn in May 2005. I don't think I hate it, but I definitely would pick out something new these days!

WOW! I don''t think I''ve ever seen a picture of you. You''re gorgeous! And I want that dress for my wedding, even if it''s mint green!


I hope people post pictures. It''s one of the American culture that I wish I could experience!

Ooh I wanna play, but hmm it may be tough as this was pre-digital cameras (for my family, anyway). I have prints, but I''m not sure I have scanned files. We''ll see. Fun!

Oh my, you are gorgeous.


Believe me, if I posted my 1967 prom photo, whoever would read this thread would fall off their chairs laughing.

Aww thank you so much, Choro! It was a Jessica McClintock dress, and she made a bridal gown in a very similar style. I attached a picture of the wedding gown for you!

Also, I really hope other people post their pictures!



ETA, Thank you as well, Linda, and InLuv for the compliments!! You are all so sweet.

Okay, the only one I could find (thanks facebook!)
With my best friend from HS. No, we didn''t go together, we had boyfriends/dates but I couldn''t find pics with them (big surprise).

My dress was a beaded ombre number from Cache.
It''s not so bad. I''ll probably think it was in 15+ years, though. Pic''s from 2002.

Just for fun and because I happened to find it, from the homecoming dance my junior year (I think...). Yet again, with a friend who WASN''T my date


I think this dress came on the heels of the Genie in a Bottle craze

OUpear--I love your dress! You look very elegant. I totally did long gloves one year as well.

Musey, I like the beaded dress. Not as big a fan of the other, but you still look gorgous!

That is AWESOME! Seriously. I almost wish my picture was more outlandish so I could look back on it and be like "oh man, those were the days". Ha.

ETA: and my dress was totally a Jessica McClintock as well. She seems to have a stranglehold on the market, non?

Oh GAWD Violet, it's not you honey that's got me giggling. It's your date and his HAIR. Wow, I remember that hairstyle. And not with fondness. ROFLMAO!

Will have to see if I can sneak a pic into work tomorrow and scan it.

Did anyone else''s school do themed dances? We had a Sadie Hawkins themed dance every year that was country themed--everyone dressed like hicks and they set up pictures on bales of hay with a farm backdrop! I''ll have to find a picture of that one...

Hahaha, I am still friends with my prom date but he looks a whole lot different now!

And yes he was wearing ONE garter around his arm. My friend actually made that since I sucked at sewing back then.

We even had white roses with dyed black tips to match our outfits, how funny is that?

His hair was like that by the way because he was a skateboarder, that was the ''thing'' back then. Mr. ''Flock of Seagulls''!

Mine is NOT a black and white either. DF is being a smarty pants as usual, tee hee. Actually, I don''t have any of my pictures here, they are in a trunk over at my mom''s house, along with all of the weddings I was in over the years ha.
