My senior prom dress was an electric blue spaghetti strap tie at the shoulder floor length Climax, in some kind of slinky fabric like Quiana. I loved that dress. My mom pouted the whole time after I got it cause she wanted me to get one of those Gunnesax/Young Edwardian things that make you look like Laura Ingalls. But I was all about the slinky.

Have I dated myself enough for y'all?
