This weekend, a girlfriend came to town for a visit and we explored a few of Minnesota's touristy treats. Of course, this meant that we made a big ol' stop at the Mall of America, where we happened upon a DEB Shop (side note: I completely thought this shop closed down in the late 90s, when the one in my hometown mall disappeared and was replaced by an Old Navy). Back when I was 12 years old, I used to wistfully look at the prom gowns in DEB shop and daydream about going to prom as a high schooler. By the time I was actually prom-going age, I was more interested in the "classier" prom offerings of department stores.
So, it made complete sense for two 27-year-old women to nostalgically try on prom gowns in good ol' DEB shop. I was particularly fond of the bejeweled numbers, while she went for a few dresses in a solid mermaid cut. It was such a silly delight! How do you like to re-live your younger years?
