|The Gold Lame prom dress! I wore this dress|
To a college dance where my boyfriend (future husband) was a
Student. It was a big deal
Yes I still one of my prom dresses in my closet. It is a little lace gold lame number. I wore it to a high school prom in Huntington Oregon, pop 600 in 1958. My boy friend, later my husband, liked to be with me when I had a dress like that. I just liked to wear it as though it really was a part of my small town world.
Now I am 81 years old and on most day I would still dress in a “prom dress”. I simply love beautiful clothes and, well, anything that is beautiful in my eyes.
A snack and some conversation followed the slow walk. One of the women is a recently retired teacher from the Midwest. She and her husband are permanently living in Tucson. The weather (of course) came up. Were we dressed right? As women will do, she remarked that she would wear a t-shirt and shorts everyday if it weren’t so cold.
“I would wear a prom dress everyday if I could.” Was that me saying that? As it turned out, yes it was.
asked if I still had my prom dress. And you know the answer.
Did you love your best dressy dress when you were young or does the one you have in your closet do for you and you would prefer shorts and a tshirt?
Just a thought.
*Note: Now you must know that what I was really saying is that I would put on a beautiful outfit every day…a tshirt would be saved for when I cleaned the toilet or mowed the lawn. While I do wear blue jeans and tshirts, it is not a preference…it is an act of fitting in with the rest.
