Can we talk for a second about prom?
I loved it. The sequins, getting my hair and makeup done, having a reason to get my nails done (even though I knew they'd be ruined the very next week during soccer practice) and the dancing (homegirl likes to shake it).
But I look back at these pictures and I cringe. Don't let the post title fool you, I didn't do anything super regretful on Prom night like OD on Ecstasy or get a DUI, I committed a crime much worse...I wore gross dresses.
Let's discuss this.
Freshman Year 2002 at Greenfield, went with my friend Matt.
Wore a pretty, pretty princess dress in "the perfect shade of ice blue", I legit remember saying that phrase. It had crinoline and I wore an extra crinoline slip underneath. Surprisingly enough, that dress got worn by two other girls to two other proms and a pageant.
Sophomore Year 2003 at Greenfield, went with my friend Kevin
My "race flag" dress (as my lovely father put it). EVERYone wore black & white that year, so I wanted to also (because dressing alike was cool I guess?) and this is what I landed on. #sad
Junior Year 2004 at SouthWest, went with then boyfriend Clay
This dress was horrible. The back was completely gone, it weighed a ton and those miniscule straps cut into my shoulders like a knife. It was a last minute choice when I couldn't find a single dress I liked.
Check the back (also, please don't even comment on my hair, twas a disaster)
Senior Year 2005 at SouthWest, went with then boyfriend, now husband, Josh.
This was my favorite dress EVER. While it was a little scandalous with it's big cutout in the middle, it was just so me then. It didn't have a ton of sequins, and it was long enough for me to wear real heels (and my date was tall enough for them, one of the reasons I married him haha). This dress also got borrowed by someone else to wear to a Marine Ball.
What were your prom dresses like?
