Each year I attend a throwback prom charity event that is held in my hometown. One of my best friends has been on the planning committee since the founding of this event and this year I joined her in planning the 6th annual event!
Over the year's we have had themes like Prom Part Deux, Revenge of the Prom and even a Night of the Living Prom where we all dressed as fancy zombies! This year with our throwback theme, anything goes! It's been obvious over the past five years that the most popular attire for prom is classic vintage/retro prom gear! Why mess with a good thing? Who doesn't want to throw on an old prom dress from the 80's and tease up their hair nice and big?
I've done 80's for two of the past five proms so this year my boyfriend and I decided to throw back to another era, the 50's! I love fashion but living in a small town, I have very few opportunities to really go all out. So for prom I like to do it up big! I also am incredibly picky and specific in the things that I want to wear, so sometimes I have to just make them myself! I did some research on 50's prom dresses and with a couple of pictures as my inspiration and guide I set out to make myself a wonderfully pink ruffled dress fit for the 1950's!
I think it turned out pretty well and I can't wait to wear it to our event on April 6th!
