Pink Saturday ~ Vintage Pink Prom Dress

Thank you, this has SOLD!
Nothing says Pink Saturday more to me than this little beauty! Dear Hubby and I were tooling around an out of the way area not too far from our home two summers ago when we came across a cute little shop. The woman had it in the front window and of course, I couldn't take my eyes off of it.




Makes me wonder who the young woman was wore it. To her prom? Who was her date? Where is the photo that was taken of her in it? Such a mystery. But yet the dress remains a charming piece of history.

If you love pink check out the many other gals who have posted their favorites today on Beverly's site, How Sweet the Sound

Hi Jillian! That dress is a beauty--I, too, often think about who owned those precious items. I can NEVER get over those great old lace up boots (with heels). They are always so small. Now I know folks used to be smaller than what we are today, but gadzooks, they had some iddy-biddy feet! :)

Glad you got you Pink Post up and running! Have a great weekend. Dana

Reminds me of the movie Pretty in Pink! Happy PS!

Jillian....the dress is to die for! Isn't is sad that there are so few times in life that we can dress to the nines like that. A wedding, a dance, ...I love to get all dolled up, but where to go dressed like that? Happy PS hugs, Kathleen

What a beautiful vintage dress...the vintage prom dresses really are hard to resist, so frothy and frou frou, especially in PINK! :-)

How pretty. You're so right, there are untold stories behind these beautiful things. I wonder how old this dress is - is it from the 50's? And such delicate lace.

What a great Pink Saturday post.

Jillian said...

I am guessing it is from the late fifties...oh how I wish it is what I wore to the prom...instead of my pink frock! LOL.

MJ said...

Wonderful dress! Will you or dear Bebe wear it sometime in the future?

Jillian said...

Hopefully Dear Bebe could wear it. It is what I am guessing about a size 2! It just barely fits my mannequin which fits size 4 clothes nicely. So, at this point, since the "baby weight", I can slip it onto one of my thighs....LOL

Hi there,
Just found you via someone else (sorry, but for the life of me I can't remember whose blog I was on at the time!) - but anyway, your blog looks very pretty...as does that simply divine pink dress (oh to be young and trim eh?).
I'm sending flu-sympathy to you from across the pond. We are all dropping like flies here too.So far, my family have escaped with just colds - thank goodness.
Oddly enough I too posted a piece about the ideal film to watch whilst languishing under a duvet - my own choice was Mamma Mia! The Movie. That's providing one has a voice left to be able to singalong!
Get well soon and thank you for having me, will return again.
Molly

Oliver Rain said...

So beautiful. I love vintage prom dresses. Is it staying in Bebe's room?

Neabear said...

Lovely prom dress. I just visited another blog showing a pink prom dress. Seems to be a theme here. Happy Belated(very)Pink Saturday!

Beverly said...

That dress is exquisite. I feel certain it would tell us of sweet dances and maybe gentle kisses in the moonlight.

Happy Pink Saturday, Jillian.
