Do people have coming out parties anymore? I think that they do, but it's been a while since I've seen anything in the paper here, regarding debutantes.
I know that the Mexican population has quinceaneras, and they are a huge, huge deal. Whatever happened to our debs? Was it really a goody two shoes thing? Maybe it morphed into prom somehow, but I have to admit, the photos of debs from years past are a pretty thing to behold.
Take this beauty, from 1950. I must say that I'm surprised that she's not wearing gloves, but maybe this was a pre-game shot, and the gloves came on later. I dearly love the dress though.
Sadly, I have no idea who the designer is, but isn't it beautiful with the lighting in the photo? Dreamy....
