Ah, Spring. A time when all young women dream of prom and the dress they will wear. Much like a wedding dress, your prom dress is one you remember all your life. It's important to make it special. In 1955, Bonwit Teller featured this "delectable froth of white embroidered organdy" dress by Cotillion Formals. Layers of white ruffles float over a full net petticoat. So pretty, so special, and most importantly, so memorable. Sold in 1955 for $59.95 (about $507 in today's dollar.)
