last night was my prom night. some mature and composed friends, holly and karina and i finally went and saw the cerebral blockbuster "prom".
and this is what we wore:
i accesorized with every piece of fancy schmancy jewelry i own. and my big plastic running watch.
and, yes i did just pull my 1998 prom dress out of a tub in my garage. those wrinkles add character. i actually can't believe i held onto it this long. i didn't even like it that much in the first place. and i paid $150 for it. that was like $432 in 2011 dollars. it was pretty much the ONLY dress at david's bridal(i went all out) with sleeves. i love that there are more sleeved dress options available now. don't believe me, check out the yellow rose bridal.
prom wouldn't be complete without dinner at a fancypants restaurant. our beauty stunned the rest of the patrons. there was silence when we walked in. and a lot of jealous, snotty stares(women are such wenches). a man at the bar actually said, "something isn't right here."
see, stunned incredulity!
besides two teens on a date, we were the only people in the theater. which is how i prefer it. in true prom fashion there was a moment when two of the three of us were laying on the floor laughing and during the movie my dress only lasted twenty minutes zipped up. i'm sure i'm not the only prom-goer to claim that, hahahahaha. but my reason was because my dress was just too tight. 1998 was 13 years and 2 babies ago.
our mantra was "just because you are old doesn't mean you can't embarass yourself".
and next time we will def bring the kids, because if you are going to do something weird, you might as well humiliate your kids too.
plus, between the 3 of us there are 10 children. i know, that math blew my mind too. that's like the population of wyoming.
it was pretty much the best prom ever.
(and holly's goodwill dress isn't orange, it's tangerine.)
stay classy south carolina!
