Did you wear Jessica McClintock to prom?

I sure did.

My mom and I went dress shopping downtown on Michigan Avenue during spring break of my senior year and we (read: she) bought me the most beautiful, princess-y, gold dress you ever did see.

I didn't even have a date yet, but I promised her I would have one by prom night (despite the fact that I had just spent the previous school dance chauffeuring my little brother and his date around because no one asked me to Tulip Trot. The horror!)

Well, I did get a date and I didn't have to spend my prom night lying around eating Cheetos and reading my Maud Hart Lovelace books for the umpteenth time (in my dress, of course). Win one for me!

Anyway, HuffPo noticed last week that Jessica McClintock is GONE. I think I kind of already knew that at one point (I Hate My Developer reminded me of it this time), but now I know it for real and I won't forget it this time. Because we're going to make a prom gallery, '90s girls. Email me prom pics of you in your Jessica McClintock dresses by Wednesday night and I'll gallerize them and publish the post in time for Throwback Thursday.

Put "Jordan Catalano sucks" in the subject line and send your pictures to magistraai @ yahoo .com (make sure you take the spaces out).

***Along with the pic, I want your prom story. What happened that night? Who'd you go with? Did you have fun? Which songs do you remember? Whatever you got. Let's get nostalgic in here.
