Prom is in the air, and I am wicked jealous. I had a very safe, timid sensibility when it came to my own proms. Now that I’m older and more confident, I’m dying for planned events with suits and fancy dresses, spiked punch and slow dances. I tried living vicariously through my little sister, but alas, she already has her senior prom dress (a very cool Etsy find made of men's ties and tulle). Still, it’s fun to imagine what I would wear if I got a second crack at it.
I’ll start by admitting that my current infatuation with tulle would come heavily into play. In fact, if I could just wear the Alice in Wonderland dress I gushed about a few weeks ago, I’d call it day. I finally found pictures of it. It still makes my heartbeat go all funny:
Of course, this is a tad wacky for prom. I'd be a bit more classic when it came to accessories:

Anyone else feeling like the really good formal dress opportunities are wasted on those who are still finding their fashion sense, and are limited by parental budgets? We 'grownups' are totally missing out. What are you wearing to prom, even if it's the one in your imagination?
