Prom 1977: Girls In Long Sleeves

Quite an elegant, romantic look, I think.

Perfect for that first slow dance: Mary MacGregor's "Torn Between Two Lovers," which spent two weeks atop the Billboard chart in February 1977.


  1. I quite like the purple tux in photo #2. :)

  2. My mother has three formal dresses she wore to high school proms and homecoming from 1972-1976... each of them are long sleeved and high collared, floor length formals. When I first got my hands on them, I was kinda like "Was this Mormon high school or something? Are shortened sleeves verboten?" because I wanted a prom dress like Carrie's pre-pig's-blood. The look of them grows on you though-- plus the sharp collars make a great frame for Farrah hair.

    Great posts, I've been enjoying all the prom-age. :)
