In Honor of Project Runway


After watching last night's episode of Project Runway, I have searched the house for my prom picture. Unfortunately, all I could find was a tiny black & white copy. (I was huge into photography in high school so I printed my own b&w's.) Anyway, here it is in all its glory.
Lucky for me, I was as unfashionable in high school as I am now. It's not that bad. The top was very gathered black velvet and the skirt part was tiered dark green with a black sheen (I colorized the skirt, that's pretty much how it looked). Very classy indeed. Man! I was skinny back in the 80's. I went to the prom my junior year with my high school sweetheart Mike, who now lives about 30 minutes from me with his wife & 3 kids. I think he reads my blog sometimes so I covered his eyes, lol. Hi Mike!
I was the head photographer of my yearbook in those days, so I actually had to carry my camera bag around all night. That was charming. I think we had a pretty good time. We double dated with my friend Coleman, the only friend I still have from high school. I distinctly remember him putting a dime down my dress. Ahhh, those were the days.
So now I challenge all of you to dig up some memories and be brave enough to post your prom photos, Homecoming's okay too. Misses Kwitty, I'm particularly interested in yours, hehe.
And Jenn, I'm so sorry your boyfriend had to go, he was nice. :(

I love it! That is one hot dress! Now I'm going to have to search for my picture. Although I think they all might be at my parents house.

I so need to get cable so I can watch Project Runway.

I might take you up on the prom photo challenge. I actually ran across mine just before Christmas when I was looking for something else, so I know right where they are.

You look fabulous in yours! Fun memories!

You look so much better at your Prom than I did at mine. My dress had HUGE puffy sleeves. Damn 1989!

And I didn't know you were a photographer too -- we have too much in common.

Hey your dress is really nice! It looks timeless and classic. You look great too!

Oh the horror of my prom dress. I don't think I will be putting mine up anytime soon!

LOL Love the gown! I posted my prom picture a few months back too. What a trip down memory lane that was :)
