Prom Theme GIVEAWAY! (and you get to see me in a fancy dress)

Well everyone it's that time of year - prom season.  It's been awhile since I've been to prom <cough> 23 <cough> years <cough, cough>, but I really never tire of looking at the prom dresses and all that fanciness that go with them. 
 I'll admit that I'm a girly girly and love frilly full dresses. 
 If I could pick a dress right now I think I'd like the one below:

It's so pretty :)

But the last prom I went to was in 1989 and here is a pic!
Don't you just love the gold????? :)

With shoes like this!

Oh the memories!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. LOVE the gold dress, but not nearly as much as the white tux!

    And I'm with you--frilly, girlie, "Cinderella" dresses are my faves.

  2. I posted an awesomely (embarrassing?) photo of my prom dream guy today too! Love the gold dress and matching shoes - way to rock the dress!

  3. I like your hair the most. That is some kinda wide part. It almost looks like you set a book on it. My last prom picture (1987) shows me sporting a FaBuLoUs mullet. Oh My!

  4. FYI, if I were choosing a dress today, I'd choose your gold one from the 80's - soooo much more personality than the other one (although the other is pretty). Thanks for hosting a giveaway! I'm having one, too, for a MG book! If you want to check it out, click here!

  5. I wore the same gold dress to my prom in 1989,in Pennsylvania!
