‘Tis the season (to mock old prom pics)

will+work+for+prom+dress Tis the season (to mock old prom pics)It’s prom season! Sure, most of us have outgrown prom frenzy, but a little reminiscing never hurt anyone (except for Roger, who never went). Author Aimee Ferris does just that, and encourages others to do the same, over at her blog Will Work for Prom Dress — a tie-in to her book with the same title (Egmont), in which two friends, Anne and Quigley, embark on a “Betterment Plan” for the occasion. This includes working odd jobs (starting with stints as frozen pizza assemblers) to raise money for their perfect dresses and seeking equally-perfect dates. The book is light, funny, and timely, great for reluctant readers. Ferris’s blog is the real draw for me — especially the prom photos of well-known authors unveiled one by one leading up to the book’s February release. As to be expected, errors in fashion- and hair-judgment abound.

Any brave souls willing to share examples (or memories) of their own? We’ll start:
