dressing up

As a reminder, I recruit high school students, many of whom are my Facebook friends.  These days, when I log into FB, my newsfeed is positively littered with photos from … what else … PROM!

I never went to prom!  I had this idea that if I went to prom it needed to be with a boy I really, really liked– now that I’m 30, I see that I should have just gone with a friend.  It would have been a great excuse to dress up and have fun.  I can’t say that I regret not going to prom– trust me, I don’t waste a lot of energy on re-imagining high school– but seeing all these pictures makes me wish I had an opportunity to get all dolled up.

So– don’t judge me, ha!– I went online this week and looked at prom dresses.  Here are my favorites.  What do you think?

  1. Great taste Jackie! The middle one is most unique to me and more my style–feminine. I had my prom dress made by a lady who recently had hand surgury….HUGE mistake. I ended up buying a new prom dress off the clearance rack last minute and was not at all me. Oh well. My wedding dress made up for my ugly prom dress.

  2. I feel exactly the same!!! like i couldn’t go to prom because I didn’t have a date with a boy!! I probably got that from you!!! I really like the short blue dress best!!! 🙂
