Will someone take me to prom??

This morning my mom called me from an antique mall here in Dallas and said, "I got the most beautiful 50s prom dress!! You have to see it!" So an hour later it was here and I've barely taken it off since then...I love it so much!







Worn with patent Givenchy pumps from fall 2007.

*Yes, my hair is much, much darker. I did not mean to get this dark...my hair dresser said he was going to do the same thing as last time. My hair dresser is a liar.

All hairdressers are liars! But you're lucky: you really look great!
I think is nice that you changed your haircolor, even if wasn't purposely ;]
Your dress looks just perfect!

I think anyone would die to take you to the prom in that. Those shoes make me melt. You are like a princess right out of a fairytale or a fairy right out of the woods ready to be taken somewhere special....

Looking at this dress makes me wish I had enjoyed prom. I obviously didn't since I didn't have an amazing dress.

Well the darker hair is very chic, intentionally or otherwise.

The dress reminds me SO STRONGLY of this vintage game my friend is obessessed with. Her grandma gave it to her or something...It's from 1960 and it's a Barbie board game called 'Queen of the Prom,' I think. They no longer make them, but the game is so quaint and cute.

Grrr...hair dresser lies are the worst! I like the darker color, though.

That is so pretty. I was at D&A in LA today and you are spot on for spring...soft colors, lots of ruffles. And there are no worries that somebody else at school will be wearing the dress! Fab.
