Natasha's Prom

Hi Everyone! I know I'm late to the prom. But I have a good excuse. Really I do. See, just like Cinderella, I had to do all my chores before I could go to the ball, I mean, Prom. Here I am riding my bike home from my lunch lady job.


(Don't ya just love my pink cruiser? How could I have anything else?)







First off, I thought I would embarrass myself by showing you all my Senior Prom picture.




Ugh! I had my hair done specially. What was a thinking? I was one of the lucky few to wear a lovely experimental herbst appliance which is why my mouth looks so strange. My date was a very nice guy. Just a good friend actually as I wasn't dating anyone. The guy I really wanted to go with turned me down. Boo hoo! But I still had a good time. Not one of the greatest highlights of my life, but still fun.








I still have the dress. Here it is on my manni. I was pretty skinny back then. My manni is fairly small and I couldn't even get the zipper all the way up in the back.


























And a close up. It was a tafetta Guinnee Saks cream with blue/grey roses. I actually forgot it had roses on it. This must have been the start of my love affair with roses. Don't you just love the puffy sleeves?










If I were going to the Prom today, I would wear something pink for sure and definitely vintage.


Maybe this dress.


















Or this one.


















Or maybe even this one.


Or maybe even something strapless. All three vintage pink dresses were borrowed from Isabel. This is one collection I haven't started, yet.

I have enjoyed peaking at everyone at the Prom today. Thanks so much Natasha for hosting this fun event!

Oh, how many of us can zip up what we wore then?!? :) I think the dress you wore to the "real" prom is adorable!! And if I was choosing for today I'm for the very frilly one..there's something really "festive" about it!

Love your bike!

And who could put on their high school prom dress? I don't even think that is possible under the best of circumstances. We are more "womanly" now! LOL!

And your hair, looks like mine did. What were we thinking? I think we just wanted to look like everyone else!

Happy Thanksgiving!
