Yes, here we are in all our 80's glamour! You'll see the mister went with the Miami Vice look! Not so easy to find a vintage prom tux without spending BIG BUCK$! This IS the dress I wore to my Sr. Prom in 1987! Geesh... i am now vintage myself!
Here are friends of ours that were crowned King & Queen... yeah, they stuffed the ballot box :) The queen wasn't even old enough to remember the 80's... she borrowed her dress. Love those giant ruffle puffs on the sleeves, the asymmetrical hemline & the giant bow at the waist :)
You'll notice my friends are the only ones doing this dance!
and here are the 6 of us
We had so much fun!! It was put on by 99.1 radio station out of Lansing, MI. They had "school characters" there: the lunch lady, janitor, coach, the principal... There were flowers & balloons & a photographer & UNlike high school: a cash bar! I was so annoyed with myself, we were going to get our pictures taken, but got caught up in the (wine) fun & totally forgot... Oh well, i had my camera (of course) & took tons of pictures.
As we were in the car leaving for "the prom" i got this email from the darling "zoe" http://zoebabie.blogspot.com/ showing me this hilarious GOLD 80's formalThe 80's... ya gotta love them, has there ever been a more gaudy, trashy time? i think back on the huge rhinestone jewelry i use to wear with jewel tone everything and all the fluorescent... oh brother!
i really neglected my blog last week- sorry, so i'm going to try & get back on track...
