In which we reveal the things ladies say while trying on prom dresses

"Trust me.  This will go over your bum and your boobs...
...I'm pretty sure."

"I'll push in and you pull up."

"I feel like my choo choo hoo hoo can't breathe."

"Too much like a demented fairy?"

"This will fit if you just stop breathing."

"Yes to the shoes, no to the socks."

"Are we amused?  We think not."

"Needs more fluff and and less tuck."

"Take the picture quick before they let go and my girlz fall out!"

"I could hold your girlz in place for you.*"

*Jim is not actually a lady, but he helped us shop for dresses

"Give us enough duct tape and support garments to floof up and squish in. We can make any dress fit anybody."

Other things we say:

"I've lost my pants again."
"I think I'm wearing your pants."
"You'd know if you were wearing my pants.  Your ankles would be cold."

"This color blue makes my boobs bigger."

"What do you think?  Glow sticks or wings with this outfit?"

See y'all at the 2013 PNER Convention in Portland!

(confused about the need for prom dresses?  See THIS POST from January 2012)


  1. Omg I think I just snorted my tea up my nose. How wish I wasnt back in school and cant join you guys!

  2. What a wonderful time! Captions and photos just perfect, though my favorite may be Jim's comment, who gallantly helped you shop for dresses, and to hold the girlz. Ha!

    Have a great time! Who am I kidding, of course you will!

  3. Naturally, I'm in love with the prom dress with butterfly wings. Though I'd probably want to add the tiara, and maybe Jim's scarf? Hmmm...I rather love the knee high argyle socks in the group pic, with you in the (what else?) purple dress. I think you should consider a side career as fashion advisor. Love this!!!!

    Thank you so much for all the laughter and support. Couldn't have done it without you. *hug*

  4. What fun! Prom dresses are just so... prommy. Looks like you had fun, which is the most important thing. Where were you shopping?

  5. Looks like a lot of fun! You just don't get enough opportunities to wear a prom dress, or tiara, or wings.
    Or you bridal gown. I wish there was at least one more change to wear my bridal gown.
    And I wish it still fit.
