prom  dress.  This  charming  dress  features  rows  of

sheer  nylon  chiffon  ruffles  and  lace  ruffles.

The  chiffon  edges  are  a  bit  frayed,  so  now  it

has  a  light  feathery  look  to  the  edges.


I  WANT  THIS  DRESS  SO  BAD  FOR  AMY  AND  MY

DRESS  FORM  ILEAN.  I  KNOW  AMY  IS  ROOTING

FROM  HEAVEN  FOR  ILEAN  TO  GET  A  NEW  DRESS.

THEY  WANT  75.00  FOR  THIS  DRESS.


PINK  IS  THE  COLOR  OF  ROMANCE  AND  A  FRIEND

AT  THE  PARTY  IS  THE  ONE  WHO  IS  SELECTED

FOR  EACH  DANCE.

Isn't it amazing how skinny waisted those dresses were.. I'd love to get in one but I think I'd bust the zipper! However, one can always dream... I love that dress though! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful pink day!

Hi, Debbie!

Love the pink dresses you shared today. They are like beautiful confections, reminding me of something delicious like a petit four or cupcake.

Sending you warm hugs across the miles. Hope your weather is warmer than ours. We are headed down in the thirties tonight.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Jeanne said...

Debbie, your post is awesome for pink Saturday. I 'simply' love the dresses you shared. Most of all the detail is wonderful. Since I was a teen in the late 50's I remember these styles so well. Would you believe I still have my prom dress from 1957 and my pink lace wedding dress from 1963. I also have to mention my baby doll nightgown from my honeymoon. You brought me the sweetest memories with your darling post. Thank you. I am off to visit Kim. Your shout out has my attention. Smile. I wonder what happened to the links. I'm calling Beverly to find out. Did you know we have been friends for 40 years?

I'm a day late visiting my darling pinkies because I have company. I woke up early this morning to get some time to visit.
Hugs, Jeanne

Donnie said...

Since I'm Vintage 1950's I really enjoyed looking at these gorgeous dresses. I was just a child then but my mother wore similar clothes. Sorry I'm late- There are so many pink participants this time. Great post.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh that second dress is just stunning! So lovely.

Thank you so much for your inspiring Sunday post too!

Be blessed!

Jeanne said...

Debbie, I just talked to Beverly and you are number 134. If some of the Pinkies relink you must refresh your computer to see everyone. It all looks right to me. I hope it is ok now.

Warm hugs, Jeanne

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Debbie. Thank you for introducing Kim to us.

I love each and every one of these gorgeous dresses. My grandmother had a pink lace dress, and how she looked in it is a special memory for me.
