Wanna See J’s Prom Dress? (And mine?)

With J’s permission, I want to show off how pretty the dress is that she picked to wear to her prom next month (she’s a junior, and has a date). We looked at LOTS of dresses, and we actually ordered this one from Alice + Olivia first – but in pale aqua instead of the pale pink – before she decided to have me cancel the order and keep looking.

The one she finally settled on is sweet and adorable, plus it came in petite sizes, which is good for my teensy daughter. It’s silk chiffon, and while it’s shown here in gray/lavender, J went with a totally different color. You can count on me showing off a photo of her actually wearing it on prom night, so the final color selection will be revealed then!

Clearly, prom fashion has improved significantly since my own junior year when I wore…. THIS HORROR. Yep, that’s me, in white gloves … posing on my grandparents’ porch before Todd Tolbert arrived to pick me up for junior prom. You can read the whole backstory on that particular dress over in Katie’s Personal Gallery of Regrettable Fashion Choices.

So how about you? Did you go to your junior or senior prom? Was “prom” a big deal at your school, or for you? Who was your date? What did you wear and how did you choose it? How did the night turn out? Tell me in the comments below.

Also if some of y’all reading this will get brave and email me your own prom pix (to mamapundit@gmail.com ) I will publish a “Mamapundit Readers’ Prom Gallery” later this week, which I think would be a lot of fun. So send me your best (worst?) prom photos! Can’t wait to see them.
