Kitty's 1950 High School Prom

Kitty's Prom Dress

      It's a been quite awhile since I posted, please forgive me.  I've been very busy,as I'm sure you all are also. Along with my wonderful vintage shop, I teach chemistry and I'm an academic advisor at a local community college.  Weekdays can be very, very full lately with the start of school.  

       Recently, on one of my vintage hunts, I came across two wonderful 1950 prom dresses and I started thinking about my mother's high school prom.  

My mother went to the prom in 1958.  At my mother's high school, they didn't call it a prom, they called it a banquet.  She wore a white strapless dress decorated with many ruffles wearing a hoop underneath.   

Wasn't she gorgeous. This is my Mom at 17. She is wearing a popular style of the 1950's.  

I've been on the hunt for plus size 1950's prom dresses lately.  Here are two that I've newly posted on my website.
