As I watched last night’s episode of Glee, I couldn’t shake the feeling that there was something familiar about the costumes the New Directions girls were wearing for their regionals appearance. Finally, it dawned on me: I’d had a similar dress for one of my high school dances – my junior year, if the label on the back is accurate. (And I’ll assume it is, because I also wrote “me, looking very dopey” on the back, which seems spot on, even after all these years.)
When I thought of this dress last night, this is exactly the photo I had in mind. I’m glad I found it, though I’m dismayed to discover that it shows less of the dress than I remember. I guess my fellow Gleeks will have to take my word that it looked like the regionals outfits, sans snappy black sash and über-80s leggings… Which is funny when you think about it, given that my photo is from the actual 80s.
And I gotta ask: is it just me, or do I seriously look like I’m about 11 in this picture? Holy baby face!
