Let me repeat that: I didn't go to prom. GASP.
Actually, though, I was fine with it. I was a homeschool student who couldn't care less about boys and dancing, so I didn't even feel like I was missing out. Looking back, though, I can imagine the ridiculous fun my group of girlfriends and I would have had at such an event. We would have probably crashed it.
Even though we didn't go to a dance, that never stopped us from appreciating prom dress fashion! Yes - we were the teenagers who went to a department store with the sole purpose of trying on fancy prom dresses. We took photos and made scrapbook pages and laughed ourselves silly.
If Addie wants to attend prom someday, I guess I will have a whole new shopping experience ahead of me. But maybe we'll skip the fitting rooms altogether and shop on the web. Online stores like JenJenHouse offer a phenomenal variety of special occasion dresses - definitely a larger selection than what would be found in a typical store.

I would never have picked it back then.
It makes me feel really old thinking about prom, and my daughter is not even two years old yet! I wonder how much fashion trends will change in the next sixteen years. I'm not a super fashionista, but I'm having fun browsing http://www.jenjenhouse.com/. I wonder if my drama students would be up for an Awards night celebration with everyone in formal attire - I kind of want a fancy new dress for myself now!
