High School Hilarity ~ Prom 1994

K @ Blog Goggles {love saying that name} tagged me with a high school prom photo …and as I recall I don’t remember liking the professional shots with my date {who was understandably mad because I wouldn’t give them to him} …but I do have this one handy which I must admit, I don’t mind. I got this creamy ivory dress at a vintage shop which supposedly belonged to Goldie Hawn …which didn’t make a difference because I loved it! I paid $150 for it in 1994 and I still have it …except I wore it to a halloween wedding with an amazing vintage black velvet hooded cape and washed it afterwards and shrunk it too short. dumb.

So, because the prom photo is not embarrassing at all ..I thought I’d give you my 1990 Homecoming photo …which is absolutely 100% embarrassing. …. and I’m thinking I should send it to Sexy People.

First of all, that was my 8th grade graduation dress and I wore it again for homecoming as a freshman in high school {14yrs old here peeps} …I also wore it later in my teens to play “Barbie” at a little girl’s birthday party …I know …ridiculous. Secondly, I look like a boy with that hairstyle {I think it’s a french braid} …and lastly, no make-up …really Maeg?

Before making our way to the dance, we all met at Jerry’s Deli on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City {which is literally 5 minutes from where I am living right now} …and 5 more minutes from our high school. I wasn’t really close to any of the girls in this group {yet} and I was really shy then. My date, whom I barely knew, gave me a grandma pin-on corsage the size of a salad while all the other girls got wrist corsages made of tiny white and red roses …and I was so embarrassed that I turned mine into a wrist corsage …which was totally rude to do to my date …my date whom I barely knew. lol. {click to enlarge the photos at your own risk}

K @ Blog Goggles tagged so many people I’ll leave this to you. ..If you want to share your embarrassing prom and homecoming photos, please do so! {also, I think I’ve been tagged with a few others …anyone want to refresh my memory if I haven’t done it yet? …I do it today}
