I Tried On My Old Prom Dresses… [PHOTOS]
Everyone has a section of a closet at their Mom's house dedicated to old prom, homecoming and formal dresses. This past weekend while home visiting, I decided it was time to see if those bad boys still fit. I'll be honest, it was a tight squeeze, haha! I obviously haven't worn this one since the Miss Teen Kentucky America pageant when I was #13 and several inches shorter, haha!
It should be noted that this was also my older sister's prom dress from 1993, haha!
I have no clue where I wore this... a dance at another school, maybe college, a pageant?!? Heck, even my Mom couldn't remember, ha!
Wore this one to prom at a different school in Mayfield my freshman year AND to prom in Kokomo, Indiana with a nice, handsome young man named Nick my sophomore year. It should be noted that I'm not breathing in this picture and I had to waddle like a penguin to get from the bedroom to the kitchen, ha!
This was my junior prom dress. I went with my dear friend Jay and looooooved this dress! Obviously, Carsyn loves it too, ha!
I also wore this one to my friend McLean's fraternity formal at Vandy either my freshman or sophomore year at college.
This is another that we can't remember what it's from, but we think it's probably something from singing. Christmas program at church, maybe?!? I can tell you this, I just about busted the zipper out of the back! It's a good thing that black velvet is stretchy, ha!
This tropical beauty (yes, those are sequins made into fish, ha) was my sister's senior prom dress in 1994, but I used it for my singing competitions. Can't you just imagine me belting out "Part Of Your World" from The Little Mermaid in this?!? ;)
And, my favorite... Senior year prom. Went with my friend Trey and instantly remembered how beautiful I felt in it when I zipped it up again. I wish y'all could see the bead-work, just beautiful! Carsyn said she wants to wear this when she is big enough for her prom... Time will tell, ha!
(I should probably apologize for my lack of make-up and thrown-up hair. We had been swimming, ha!)
