It's Time For The Prom!

It's PROM Time!

Hosted by the lovely Natasha (http://www.natashaburns@blogspot.com) at Natasha Burns Creations. Natasha is going to give us alot of info on who is "Going to the Prom" today! Stop by and see her blog! It should be fun dropping by to see "What Everyone Is Wearing"!

I couldn't decide what to wear, so I've decided to let you all help me decide. I've started off with this "GORGEOUS" 50's prom gown. Studded rhinestone bodice, strapless, with loads and loads of white tulle. I'd say you'd have to have a teeny-tiny waist for all of this tulle! But I just love it! Since it's so near Christmas, I'm thinking of this as a Christmas prom!

This B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L Prom Gown is from the 40's. Soft as a baby's skin. Doesn't this just scream romantic and ALL GIRL! The neckline drapes with the softest pink ruffles I've ever seen. Waisted with an overskirt of ruffled fabric. This is not tulle, not sure what it is, but it is just gorgeous! Brigette Claudette, my mannequin is also sporting some rhinestone jewelry. Forgot to get a closeup of that, but just enlarge the pictures....

Just as add'l info, this is the corner of my bedroom (still working on the bedroom). The screen I found at a local antiques fair Heather and I attend. I've gathered two crinoline skirts on one side and on the other side is a child's bridesmaid dress or confirmation dress? Not sure. But, adorable with the veil.

Needless to say my round suitcases come in handy to hide all the "unsightlies". Jammed with creative paraphanelia!

And what girl goes to the prom without shoes? I found these vintage Saks Fifth Avenue shoes at a local antique store. Sorry about the light in the pictures. Best I could do late last night. They are clear vinyl with rhinestone bows. There are also rhinestones embedded in the heels! Don't you just love them. So absolutely romantic!

Well girls, can't wait to see what you all are wearing to the prom. Hope you have a fun day! I'll be stopping by!
