I wore this to relive prom in Texas!

Prom, without the raging hormones and with better clothes? Bring it on. If there's one thing I'm completely OK with, it's an excuse to get fancy. So, when I found out that TXSC would have a prom this year, I immediately knew what I'd wear, excited to actually have the chance to get dressed up in one of my absolute favorite dresses. This vintage dress is like a neon shot in the arm. It's awesome.

If you want to be technical about it, this was my fourth prom. And, not surprisingly, the best. The last time I waltzed into prom, I was on the arm of my friend Steph, wearing bright red bondage pants, a thrifted blazer, Ramones tee-shirt, and -- to my teenage dismay -- heels (they wouldn't let me in wearing the black Converse I so carefully selected for the event). Needless to say, this time around I had a lot more fun. And by fun, I mean I danced until I hurt myself. Jen and I were even nominated for 'Best Pals'...and won! Take that, high school.

Aw! I would love to relive prom! Especially because the only one I went to I was pregnant at 18 and had to hide it and my bf was a dbag for sure. Nonetheless, you look adorable as always. I almost thought you died your hair! It looks so dark in the first photo! I love your photobooth pics. So cute!

What a fun dress! I loved going to prom, and I wish I could go to another one now without it being really weird and awkward...lol. I suppose it'd be a good party theme for something someday!

I love the crinoline underneath. Every dress is made better by a petticoat and swooshing.

Laura said...
