This one is from 10th grade. It's always been my favorite
This one is from 11th grade. Hannah likes that it looks like Belle's from Beauty and the Beast. Unfortunately, all of the pics in this dress are blurry...but I had to include at least one anyway.
I got rid of my 12th grade dress pretty quickly because it was super, duper small. My friends and I had a pension for spending hours and hours each night drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes at West Winds, a diner in the west end of Hagerstown. We migrated there when our shifts at Bob Evans ended each night...that's right. Bob Evans. Totally gross. Anyway, I don't think I was eating much back then because I was an absurdly small size 3 when prom rolled around. I knew I'd never fit into that dress again so I sold it in a yard sale a year later. Not that I intended to ever again wear the ones I could fit into...
Anyway, I don't know why I held on to the others at first, but a few years ago Amy told me she was saving all her party dresses so her future kids could play dress up in them because she used to love dressing up in her aunt's old dresses. That's the best reason I ever heard of to keep old, dated, ridiculous dresses, so now that's why I'm holding on to them. And today, to celebrate the premature winter weather, we had a premature prom dress, dress-up party. Take that crappy weather!
