The HS Prom Tag

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:

Hit Albums (when music lovers actually bought CDs)
-The Bends, Radiohead (I played Fake Plastic Trees on my CD Walkman non-stop)
- A Boy Named Goo, Goo Goo Dolls
-What's the Story Morning Glory?, Oasis
- Elastica
- Dookie, Green Day
- Tuesday Night Music Club, Sheryl Crow

Hit Singles
-Gangsta Paradise, Coolio
-Boombastic, Shaggy
-You Are Not Alone, Michael Jackson, (remember the video? with Lisa Marie Presley?)
-Hold Me, Thrill Me etc., U2
-Wonderwall, Oasis
-Buddy Holly, Weezer

Box Office Hits
-Apollo 13
-12 Monkeys

On the Tube?
-Full House
- The Original 90210
-Family Matters (Remember Urkel?)

Other Events
-Yahoo! was founded
-Latina Superstar Selena was killed by the president of her fan club
-Oklahoma bombings
-Million Man March
-OJ is found not guilty of the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman
-the DVD is introduced to the world
-in Canada, the 'toonie' ($2 coin) is introduced
-Supreme Court of Canada rules that sexual orientation constitutes a prohibited basis of discrimination under the CDN Charter of Rights and Freedoms (this case, along with others, paved the way for gay and lesbians to be 'spouses' under various legislation)

I tag everyone who wants to participate!!!

Your so cute!

Mo said...

You look adorable! Do you still have those gloves? C'mon, you can admit it!
I think in 1995 I still had braces and glasses and most likely bad hair. Fun times.

Mo said...

PS: Your hair looks really shiny and pretty!

The Professional Bridesmaid said...

@ Mo - I did have nice hair back then!!! It's not that way anymore. Too many highlights perhaps.

I, thankfully, do not have those gloves anymore. No idea why I thought those were cool. And you can tell, they did not fit!!

Krista said...
