Prom Queen


Jill over at Peeptoe Pumps and Pearls is hosting a trip down memory lane to all of us girly girls who want to reminisce about our prom days way back when...

Here are the rules...
1. Upload your prom picture.
2. Don't forget to include the year it was taken. Again, don't be shy. The older the better.
3. Grab the "Prom Queen" button on my sidebar and add to your post. Isn't the button adorable? Thank you Danielle, The Design Girl. You must check out her fabulous sale!
4. Copy and Paste the rules to your blog
5. Tag 5 others!


This first one is not me, for good measure and just for fun I've included a picture of my mom and dad at their Senior Prom...that would be 1965 I think! Of course I love the fact they were High School Sweet Hearts and I think they are adorable!
This one is my first prom...1992. The traumatic thing about my first prom is...shhhhh don't tell, but I did. not. have. a. date!!!!! I was so upset, but never fear because I have lots of good looking cousins!!!!!!! This is my cousin, TW, and I think he was about 14 years old! Nobody knew he was my cousin and honestly, I think my table had the most fun! He is the kind of guy you want around in potentially stressful situations like the prom because he is a blast! Even at 14 years old he was entertaining everyone and in his element with 17 and 18 year olds!! I should say that I went to a private school and we didn't actually dance...so it was called a banquet. We had dinner and a slide show and I guess that was it. Just in case anyone was wondering if I danced with my cousin...I'm not from that part of the country!

But, the hysterical pink sequin dress has a story too...besides the 60" wide shoulder puffs. I saw this dress in a prom magazine and tore out the picture to add to my wish list. I love pink and of course at the time those sequins and puff sleeves were attractive. I was shocked one Saturday when mom and I was shopping for my dress(yes...shopping for a dress with no date!) and we came across this dress in a boutique. It was a size 4...obviously not my size at any point in my life. But they special ordered my size and it was really the only dress I tried on that year. I still have the magazine clipping and the funny thing is my mom has a magazine clipping for her dress in the photo above! We both shop through magazines to find what we love!

This was my Senior prom, 1993. Again, I was dateless! These are my two best friends from high school and we all just piled in the car and went stag. Honestly, we had a great time. We sat at the teachers table and laughed with them and really enjoyed it. I think I may be the only 18 year old in the world that would have enjoyed that, but I've always been an "old soul"...or as my friends call me I'm just a 'granny' at heart!

You haven't really aged much, have you?! I'm sure you hear this all the time, but your skin is amazing.

LOVE the shoulder puffs. They are fabulous.

I'll be the first to say that prom dates are SOOOOOOOO overrated. I had one and didn't even hang out with him. I had fun with my girlfriends.

I'm glad you played along!

So funny, I love the pink dress with the puffy sleeves. Do you still have it?

Your parents are so cute~ vintage photos are the BEST.

Amy, you look so pretty in both of those pictures! I love the puffs - and you didn't even mention the big hair! LOL I'm going to have to dig out my pictures from way back when. I've got the Farah wings with my hair! HA HA HA I'll post them if I find them easily. Thanks for sharing and I hope you get out of school on time and without the swine flu! Take care,
