Vintage Picks: Prom Dresses

The dresses I remember most from my prom were the non-traditional dresses -- a few in Renaissance garb, a goth, one in duct tape. In a sea of seemingly identical Jessica McClintock's, the vintage and the outrageous stood out. If you don't want prom to be the first time in high school you fit in, try a completely period dress.
