Oh, Those High School Dances!

Allow me to take you back to a simpler time. A time of big hair and bigger shoulder pads. Come with me to the Oh, Those High School Dances bloghop hosted by the radical Kelley Lynn and totally tubular Emily R. King. The rules are simple: post pictures of your high school dances; share your funniest high school dance story; and that's it! Prizes will be given so join in now. It's not too late. To whip it. Whip it good.


In case you missed the references, my prom took place in that pit-of-fashion era, the 80s. 1987 to be exact. Witness the horror:




My funny story? The picture is worth a thousand better words than I could write.


Happy dancing queens and ¡Buen Provecho!

  2. That is SO funny. Seriously. I can't stop laughing. And you set it up beautifully. :)

  3. What's he holding and what's on his head?

    Luckily our prom dress styles just started to changed, so we didn't have as many long poufy big shouldered dresses as the previous decade. Whew! But we still had the poufy hair. Gotta love the polka dots.

    1. Thanks, Ilima! Ok, for everyone who's asked, he is wearing a tuxedo he designed himself. The thing in the middle in on the tux, not in his hand (I know it's hard to tell). It's a multi-colored/faceted rose with a matching headband. He was very artistic :)And yes, it's hilarious now. I wish I could find the pic of my face the first time I saw it. I wasn't too happy, but I supported him none the less. Ah, young, blind love :)

  11. Someone beat me to it, but my first thought was, "He's wearing a headband Karate Kid style!"

    Your hair is actually pretty good for '87.

  13. Knuckle bump fellow 1980's dancer! Now I happen to think our big shoulder pads and bigger hair were smashing. And I totally miss the over sized shirts.
