Event: Chorus Banquet (College) [ed note: AWESOME]
Big 80s hair? Check
TEAL? Double check! (Matching tie!)
And if I asked, “What state is her date from?” and you said, “Minnesota!” You’d be correct.
So, yeah. Being a) a “chorus girl” myself and b) of Minnesotan stock, this photo is near and dear to my heart. They look so cute and happy to be wearing their teal. And who can blame them? After the numerous FAKE stone walls we’ve seen on Promtacular!, it’s practically reassuring to see that, in some places, real stone walls actually existed. It’s as if they’re laughing at us: Hahahaha, you think we’d stand in front of a PAINTED stone wall? Dude, we’re going to a CHORUS BANQUET! This is the real deal, yo!
Yes. I know we’ve seen this couple before. But it’s Friday, half of you are probably hungover (Happy St. Patty’s Day!) and, well. If this photo doesn’t brighten your entire weekend, you have no business being on this website.
The theme? Layers. Layers, layers, layers. Can you count them all? NO. NO, YOU CAN’T.
Layers of ruffles in his shirt.
Layers of flounce in her dress on top AND bottom.
As if, perhaps, a giant gust of wind blew by they might just be swept up. WHOOSH!
