Breezin...



I'd probably rather have killed myself than gone to our school's Prom when I was 16, but that was just because I was a defiant, rebellious, grumpy teenager. Now that I’m older the idea of enjoying myself doesn't seem so threatening anymore.

Pretty dresses in that second photograph, my dear, and her face in that first image is so expressive, too, her eyes are twinkling like dew on grass;-)

More great pictures. They look like they were have a great time.
Amazingly I was so shy back when I was 16 and boys eeek - it would have freaked me out that I would have had to get one to take me. Xxxx

How fun!! I completely missed out on my prom. My mom is very religious and prom night happen to fall on the Sabbath that year. Her idea of making it up to me was a limo ride to the church :o/ I kid you not! This is one of the stories I'm saving for my tell-all book someday!

But, I'm glad they had an awesome time! When I have a little girl someday, I will live vicariously through her prom day :)

Vintage Vixen said...

What gorgeous and well-dressed girls! I sounded rather like you, Sabine, a grumpy teenager more into reading dark literature and listening to The Smiths than having fun with my classmates.
A lovely, fun post! Off to catch up with what else I've missed on your fabulous blog.

What fun!! I'm sure they'll look back on Prom Day fondly. Cyndi Lauper Girls just wanna have fun- Makes me want to break into song!

My high school didn't have a prom, but back then I wasn't really fussed. A very laid-back teenager I was.

In Copenhagen the graduates also just want to have fun... and they are not shy to let anyone know. The dress code is white and red, with the little white graduation cap. We don't have a pram, and I can not imagine myself having attended one if we did, much like you. But this girls still wants to have fun, and I would love an occasion to dress up and go out. Cosy post! :-) Sandra

great pictures! and the glowing faces of the girls - priceless. :) we didn't look that festive back then. but that was in the, erm... late 80s and a "Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink"-like style was the most festive kind of outfit.

I went to three proms in high school and none of them held very good memories. I just remember being hungry.

drollgirl said...

love these shots!!!

and it is fun to be angry and defiant in one's youth (and in adulthood!), but it is also good to get out and shake it. there has to be a balance somewhere. i think the lucky ones do both! :)

Clare said...
