"Each night I ask the stars above, why must I be a teenager in love?"
Do you ever wonder what it would have been like to be a teenager in the fifties? Pop songs already told us that breaking up was still hard to do but we all know that were plenty of other differences between the era before color television and the internet.
Take for instance the wait for your prom date to ask you to the dance, since there was no way a lady was going stag back in the day. Instead of checking your direct messenger or even getting a call while waiting in line to order a mocha after school you'd have to wait around at home, maybe help your mom in the kitchen while listening to the radio. Then it would happen. That phone hanging on the kitchen wall would ring, you'd answer politely and when you realized it was Bobby on the line there would be no wandering away for privacy. You'd have to stay in the kitchen and make prom plans right in front of the prying eyes of your mother.
While we might appreciate our new modern conveniences and our new sense of privacy, it's understandable if we want to revisit the fashions of our past. This fitted and flared dress will scratch that nostalgic itch whether you're heading to your own prom or you're attending a costume party. The sea-foam blue would have gone over well in the high schools of yesteryear and is making that classic comeback that colors often do. You'll have a blast dancing in this floral patterned dress, or not, it's your party you can cry if you want to!
