Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil!
Subj: Aunt and Mother, or White and Yolk?
“I really like this photo of my aunt’s prom. The white dress is a common inside joke in our family, I hope you enjoy it!”
Oh, we do.
The one gauze sleeve + white lace Madonna gloves make the white dress just THAT much different from a wedding dress. Sort of. But paired next to the “traditional” egg-yolk-colored silk dress, you really have a special combination. I’m kind of surprised the hair wasn’t bigger on either of these girls, though. Maybe Brazil was more tamed than the states in ’85? (Hard to imagine.)
Um, also? I LOVE the black-and-red frame. Hot.
Most of all (beyond the “egg” theme, that is), I LOVE LOVE LOVE the live band on the stage. I love that there are bongos. I love that there’s a woman in ANOTHER white dress with a slit up to Munchkin Land. I love that there’s a foot-tall “fence” to keep the band members from falling off, which looks to be a giant safety hazard itself.
If only we could hear them.
