Dig up prom photos to share with readers

They all seemed so chic at the time:
That homemade prom dress from 1958, the day-glo print from 1974, even that 1986 satin monstrosity with weather-balloon sleeves.
Being the elegant gal you are now, you’ve hidden all photographic evidence of your prom dress missteps.
Well, the best way to heal is to share, so get those old photos out, scan them in and send them our way.
We’re looking for old prom-dress photos, from the cute to the horrendous.
Upload photos at DesMoinesRegister.com/promphotos. Be sure to include a caption.
Bring your style sense, because we’re asking readers to look through the photos and rate the dresses.
If yours is voted as best example of fashion run amok, you’ll win a dinner for two at Centro to relive old prom memories with your date.
Submit by April 1, please.
