The More Tulle, the Merrier...

prom3

Sadly, this is not my dress. If it were, I would be pulling a Josie Grossie and heading back to high school just in time for prom.
The good news is, if you live in the Hamilton area or want a good reason to visit the area, you can purchase this dress at the Dreaming of Dresses sale happening at White Elephant this weekend. I got a chance to peruse some of the vintage dresses before the sale (because I am VIP like that...) and the dresses are good. Really good. And I don't say that lightly. Seeing a few racks of unique and wonderful vintage dresses makes me want to bust out my knitting, make some pea soup and talk about how 'they just don't make them like they used to'.
So, if you are in the area and need a wedding dress, a prom dress or a just an awesome dress, make sure you get down to the to White Elephant on May 11th or 12th... If you are not in the area, you can try Etsy or spend some time this weekend watching 'Never Been Kissed' and ponder how the storyline is actually a little weird... That is all.

Now that's a prom dress! Oh what the girls are wearing these days! It's hard for me to believe parents let them leave the house!
Thankfully my son's date was wearing what I consider appropriate prom attire.

It's so true that "Never Been Kissed" is weird - I remember LOVING it when it came out, but then I re-watched it recently and I was wondering what in the world was I thinking?

Then I remember that Michael Vartan is one of the leads in it and I remember what I was thinking :).

Uncomfortably weird. Until you get to the end and Drew is looking all cute in her curls and Michael Vartan dreamily jogs out onto the field. . .

I was at the sale during Art Crawl Friday night and fell in love with so many dresses. The turquoise dress in the window was to die for! Vintage dresses make me swoon.
