My #1 girl went to the Prom on Saturday. I didn’t think I would ever see this happen. As you can tell, she isn’t what most people would call a “traditional” girl. I knew dress shopping would be a challenge, but it turned out pretty good. We picked up her dress (a vintage 80’s dress) at a resale store and made a few alterations. Paired with fishnet stockings, Doc Martins and her grandmother’s black beaded necklace, she looked beautiful. Her date went vintage too, which I just love. They had a great time!

Another kid milestone to cross off the list. Adorable pictures and fun to see what dress you ended up with (after your FB posts).

Do you love him Loretta said...

I love her look! I was considered a 'punk rocker' in my high school (back in the late 70s-early 80's). While I listened to punk/new wave music, my choice in clothes was my moms vintage '60s clothes (simply because I couldn't afford NEW ones). So I was labelled a 'punk' and I revelled in being different! I hate 'the norm'. Good for your daughter, she looks great!!

So cool! I think that's my dress from the 80's! Ha!

I see a cabinet in your driveway I might need! Seriously, are you bringing it to Farm Chicks???

Hi, I just stumbled across your lovely blog, and I'm so glad that I found you. We have a lot in common. I absolutely love to find a yard sale,thrift store, etc. item and turn it around into a can't live without treasure. There is the fun of the hunt, but even better, the process of the transformation.
Your daughter's Prom pictures are absolutely charming. I love it when I see kids that know who they are and do not conform to be a carbon copy of everyone else. Bravo, to her and to her date for being such a classy guy.
I am your newest follower. Please accept my warm invitation to visit and to hopefully follow me too. Connie :)

Lisa, they are so cute! Our family has several "non traditional" kids, too! Jordan surprised us once with bondage pants and Doc Martins, but that phased out - along with his 3 inch spiked hair. Ha!

Your daughter is so cute and her date smashing in his vintage attire.

Have a sweet day!
