K over at Blog Goggles (have you checked out her blog? you should, highly entertaining and a ton of eye candy) recently tagged me - the task? I have to post my prom picture. So my fellow bloggers, I give you The Professional Bridesmaid's prom picture circa 1995.......................
First of all, what's with the long black gloves? With the super short dress? And the jewelry over the gloves? And the sheer black hose? Sigh. What a nightmare. Perhaps it was cool back then....somehow I doubt it.
Just to refresh your memories (whether it was your promo year too, or you were in diapers), some interesting tidbits of 1995:
