Prom Retrospective

Lookee what I found! Inspired by Abby & Sarah's walk down prom-memory-lane, I came across my own photos from Junior & Senior proms.

Junior year (1994)...
Senior year (1995)...

I HATED this dress then, and even more so now. Can you say "Senator's Wife"?? (Though I must say I looked better at Rodney's prom than I did my own, wearing the same dress. It was all about the bad hair.) Phoebe, on the other hand, looks darling.

(See, Phoebs, a post about me can also be about you, I'm that kind of friend!)

Kellyry said...

Yes, E, that "black" hair would be my natural color. Yeah...doesn't suit me much, eh? Thanks for thinking I'm prettier now!

Hi Kelly -
Oh my word, that is not what I expected when I looked at your blog this morning. Gosh, that was a long time ago, we were so young! Thanks for making me smile :)

Kelly, I commend you for your bravery. I would not have the guts to post my prom pictures for all the world to see.
I agree with E, you are prettier now (not that you weren't pretty then).
People say the 80's were bad, but I don't think that the 90's were any better. The clothes might have been slightly better, but our hair was horrible!

I am so glad to see that this post is about me.
I commented earlier and it never showed up. Grrr.
Here is my unsolicited opinion. You had so many other cute formal see Junior Prom) that this black and white dress seemed even more dowdy, but we all make mistakes. Let's think about my Senior Homecoming Date:) HUGE mistake.

Phoebe said...

Oh yeah, the bunny ears were Kyle on Kristen. Seems like she forgave him, though.

Kellyry said...

Ah yes, she did forgive him. Enough to bear his children. ;-P

Thanks for the support Phoebs. And yes, some dresses & dates are better left in the "mistake" classification.
