I just watched the Cookie Prom episode of Super Fun Night, where the girls have an awful time at their high school prom, and after they come home decide to have a massive cookie binge to feel better. Long story short, they turn it into a yearly tradition. And it got me thinking - mostly that I should start my own annual cookie prom, because...cookies. But also, it got me thinking about how much prom dresses have changed since I had a prom to go to (besides my newly impending, imaginary Cookie Prom, that is). Here's what my prom dress looked like (please ignore those awful shoes; I promise I swapped them out in the limo for something less - uh - strippery; I still kick myself for being too lazy to just take the time to buckle the straps of the cuter ones before pictures were taken).
And then while perusing JenJenHouse, I decided to click to see what prom dresses look like today. I am impressed (and admittedly kind of jealous that these kinds of beauties weren't available when I went to my prom). Take a look at some of these amazing dresses.
I may just have to make this Cookie Prom happen, if only so I have an excuse to wear one of these beautiful dresses (even if it will just be my boyfriend and a box or five of Entenmann's original recipe chocolate chip cookies that appreciate it).
