Good luck with that task. And I hope you do see a couple of those vintage styles. I think they are so cute. You are a doll.

You all look gorgeous!!! Can't wait to see what you and Katherine decide on. It goes without saying that she will look AMAZING in whatever dress!!!

you could cut the lace and sleeves off, raise the hem to thigh length and you might get close!

Love it! When I was younger, I loved to look at prom dresses in catalogs or pattern books. I have a soft spot for 80's fashion. You look radiant in the picture by the way. :)

We never had the joys of a prom when I was at school ~ it has only come over to the UK in recent years!!
Although I never had a prom dress ~ I did have a bridesmaids dress once which was very similar to the one in the middle and made me itch like mad ha ha !!
Love the photo Dani ~ you all look so great!
Hope that the dress shopping goes ok ~ I hope that Kat finds a dress she loves.
love and hugs Tab XXX

I'm sure GoodWill could help you with the poofy dresses. Love the pic!

I went to prom about 12 years ago, and my dress is already really dated. Fashion changes so quickly! However, I did keep all of my old dresses from high school. They are fun to look at occasionally. One day I got really brave and tried one on. BIG MISTAKE.

By today's standards those old dresses look almost frumpy. It's funny how styles can change so completely. You were such a babe!

Amanda said...

I just love that picture! It's like something out of the movie "The Wedding Singer" have you seen it?
I hope you and Kat have a successful dress shopping trip at the weekend!
(can't wait to see the one she chooses!)
Love,
