Lady in Red #Monday Musical Memories #The Red Dress

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.In my new novel, The Red Dress, my protagonist goes to the prom in a dress her mother made for her. My own prom outfit wasn’t handmade. It was store-bought. But I was proud of it all the same. It consisted of a long, yellow skirt and matching yellow blouse that Mother and I found at a store downtown the day of the prom. Although I may have worn the outfit once or twice after the prom, I no longer have it and am not sure what happened to it. You can read more of my prom memories here. Now, enjoy the song.

How about you? Ladies, were your prom dresses handmade or store-bought? What color were they? Gentlemen, where did you get your tuxedos, and what color were they? Do any of you still have the outfits you wore to the prom?
