Vintage prom dresses from the 50s &60s..the golden age!

Whatever your thoughts on Prom, you can't argue that the 1950s and early 1960s was the era when Prom as we know it was truly defined. A more romantic, glamorous and innocent time, filled with frothy tulle, taffeta and chiffon gowns, and teenagers across the land smooching and slow dancing the night away to the latest sounds from Elvis, The Shirelles & The Beach Boys, before returning home, virginity intact...(perhaps).

  1. This makes me want to do prom all over again. I hated prom. Granted the cheap dress I wore got transformed into my wedding dress (and yes I did marry my prom date but he didnt want to dance one bit). These dresses are gorgeous. I really should take a drive to Jersey City and get one. . .
