"Here are two pics. The first is me and my date, standing outside the prom venue. Remember when baby's breath in your updo with two front curls was so kewl???
The second is this girl Debbie who was also on prom committee (yes, I was on the prom committee) and we realized after describing our dresses to each other that we'd bought the same one from the same boutique. We were friends and we thought it was funny, whatevz. She looked better in it because her arms were super toned and she was athletic — this was before I knew what tricep dips were — BUT I made my appearance in it first since she was on the softball team and they had a game the same night as prom, so... I felt pretty cool about that." —Emmy Favilla
"For my prom, I wore a Betsey Johnson dress I got from the nearest Betsey Johnson outlet, and felt super cool and fashionable for wearing it. That same week, How I Met Your Mother aired an episode that was about its characters crashing a prom. In it, my prom dress was used as an example of a totally UNCOOL and UNSEXY dress that modern-day teens would NEVER wear to prom. Luckily I did not hear about this till years later. I still think my dress was awesome, though!" —Mariane Uribe
