With prom time upon us, I thought I would flashback to one. I wish I could say I am flashing back to MY prom, but alas, no. This is my sister's prom. I, unfortunately, never went. I love the new way kids do the prom now, groups going, dateless but friendship heavy. My sister dated an older boy and got to go to his prom and then a few years later to her own. This is his prom in 1966, she is an 8th grader and he is a Senior. Everything about this photo will take you back if you were a teen in the 60's.
My sister is the one in pink. I love the lace overlay on my sister's pink dress. And I love the little pink ribbons in her hair.
Oh my goodness, she is so incredibly young ! And so pretty. She still is:) The boyfriend is long gone, though. They dated for a long time. We all thought they would marry, but it was not to be.
I also love the long gloves her friend is wearing. Very chic and elegant. I guess they must have coordinated the guys, or maybe white tux were the rage back then. This would be the first year they dated, so I'm sure this was such a big night for her.
It was tough having an older sister. I always looked forward to being able to do the things she did, like wear this incredible hat for Easter that I wrote about here, or go to prom, or heck, even having a boyfriend, only to not have these dreams materialize for myself! My sister was very popular, sure of herself, a daredevil, sporty...I was none of these things. Now don't get me wrong, I had a great time, I just was different than she. I'm more "art-y", loner, homebody.
So how about you? Did you go to the prom? I notice the teens now days often wear short dresses. How about you - long or short? Corsage for shoulder or wrist - or none? Beauty Parlor hair or natural? I hope you've enjoyed this trip down memory lane. Thanks for visiting!
