prom dress

there seems to be a theme going on with my blog this week


After trying on my sexy black dress and it fitting…i went on a crazy mission.
which by the way…a few of you have asked to see pics of the black dress. i do not have any pictures of me…but others do.  i have no idea how to get them…
but do not be sad…this post has pictures!  lol

enter the prom dress.

yes, i still have my prom dress.  i just can’t seem to part with it.

when my parents were moving house my mom asked if i wanted the dress…if i didn’t…she was going to throw it away.
i almost had a coronary!!!
throw it away???  i don’t think so.
So this dress has been occupying space in my closet…for many many years.

I remember when i saw the dress. it had to be mine.  it was so pretty i could have cried.
never mind that it was a little snug.  i was under 20, i could lose weight in the blink of an eye.
my poor parents didn’t say no…and dropped 200 bucks for this dress…because i wanted it.
200 bucks – almost 2 decades ago.  craaaaaazy.
oh…and i still have the matching shoes.

here i am on the eve of my prom:

how hot am i??  lol.  that’s my date.  J.K.  i wonder what ever happened to him!
so yes…this was me…almost 20 years ago…and yup..i paid for that hair!

I haven’t tried that dress on since my prom.

So since i was on a roll that night..out came the prom dress 🙂

I slipped the plastic off of it…and it looked as pretty as the day i saw it.
not only that…amazingly it still smelled like my childhood home
(that’s gotta be the best smell in the world!!)

And…as you probably already guessed….
the dress fit!!!!

I can’t even begin to explain in words how crazy happy i was!!!!
it was really late at night so there was no one i could call and tell.
i wanted to tell the world!!!!
so i told all the animals…but i don’t think they gave a rats ass.  they were more impressed with the plastic cover.

I wore this dress almost 20 years ago…when i was tiny
and it fit!!!!

So of course…what’s a girl to do other than document the proof.
so i took a picture.

it’s not easy taking a full length picture of yourself.
but here i am:

notice my little feline in the corner of the mirror?
he’s such a ham lol

sadly…i am all out of dresses to try.

what a blast from the past though 🙂
yay for 20 year old dresses fitting!

    I love that the animals liked the bag more than the dress, that made me LOL. I also love that you took a picture of you in it….I gotta be honest, I was a tiny bit skeptical…but holy shit, there you are, in that adorable dress. Tiny. Nice. Love the kitty too. Your post made me smile. 😀

    That’s amazing!! Oh it’s so pretty!! I have my prom dress from 2 years ago but haven’t worn it since, i’m too scared to try it on again.
    I have another prom coming this summer, I’m excited to go dress shopping again 🙂
