I remember being soooo jealous of you in that dress. What was I thinking??!!! It was gorgeous at the looked pretty hot.


Pictures please!! Pretty please!!


i'm gonna guess 1988.


I had a green dress almost identical to that!!!! AWESOME!

The class of 1988 rules!!!


Hey, if it makes you feel any better that dress looks JUST LIKE the dresses we had to wear in high school choir.

Not gonna guess the year... 'cause I think I had the same dress! ha!



Well I think it is really wonderful that you can still (almost) fit in the dress... That's amazing.

How many gazillion yards did that skirt require???



I took my wedding gown out of the closet last year ~ I couldn't get it up over my hips! LOL I wouldn't even dare try to get into the dress I wore to prom (in 1986).

I have to admit, that green-to-black fabric was pretty sweet...

OK so my Junior Prom was in 1990 and my dress was irredescent purple with an assymetrical hem -- tea length. Oh the memories of dyeable matching shoes and purses.


I had a blue one almost just like it...freshman homecoming dance...too funny. Oh, and I had a HUGE hairbow to match!!!

Let's see - mine was incredibly similar but in Lilac. I'm guessing circa 1986ish? Don't even tell me that you're younger than I am!
