It's Raining on Prom Night: Vintage 1950s Dresses that wow!

If I could travel back in time to 1999... My junior prom.  I wore a stupid pink dress from Macy's.  Sure, I though the dress was beautiful at the time, but when I look back at the pictures... that's just it, I threw them away years ago! Even though I had a blast at prom, the pictures were nothing short of boring and unmemorable.  If I had it all to do over again... same handsome date, same dinner plans, DIFFERENT DRESS!
Here are a  few vintage gowns that I would have loved!

  3. Oh I know just how you feel. I hate the dress I wore to my prom too, it was black crushed velvet with spaghetti straps, how 1997 can you get! Glad you like the dress, I just wish I could fit into it and then I could have a prom party at home ;) x

  6. oh how things have change. If I could go back I would most def wear a vintage gown, you wouldnt have to worry about someone having the same one on.

  7. I saw a girl this weekend wearing a 1950's style prom "gown"...beautiful blue with sparkles in the fabric of the skirt. It was strapless and had a tiny waist and VOLUMES of skirt. I was wondering if she was wearing a hoop under there! It suited her perfectly, and she looked radiant.
