Wanna dance? Er.. not really...

This is age 12 or 13. My first formal. It was at a military academy my friend's older brother went to in Pennsylvania.
My mom made this dress for me. I was super self conscious about my concave chest, so I needed a dress with ginormously puffy sleeves. I was soo pretty in my dress and so inept on the dance floor that I stared at my feet the entire time, just kind of rocking in a bizarre manner.
The best part about my dress is that a while later, I went to a party at some rich kid's house and their wallpaper was the same material as my dress. SWEET!
AND I found a picture of my sister from this era. (She was about 17/18.) She had the same hairstyle! It was the thing! I am not just a freak with wings on my head.

I'm getting this Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" kinda' vibe from this photo.

Could you please do the following reading for me whilst wearing the gown please?:
Scarlett: Sir, you are no gentleman.
Rhett Butler: And you, Miss, are no lady.

I love the pose though, that's the absolute best.

I would have died and gone to heaven to have worn such an elaborate, material-laden dress at that age! Our poor little pre-teen souls!

Also agree with Cluss, awesome pose!

Thanks Busted!
I had to pose like this, so's you could see the huge-normous bow. Isn't my hair sweet? And the corsage that is bigger than I am and lived in the freezer for like, ever!
