Throwback Thursday: Birchbox Goes to Prom

Oh, prom. Not so long ago, many a Birchbox staffer went all out for that big night, and of course we took tons of photos to commemorate the epic event. In honor of prom season, we knew we had to share these pictures with you—even if we’re cringing (or laughing) at the choices our younger selves made. The hair! Those dresses! That glittery eyeshadow… Read on for a peek at some of our, err, favorite memories from high school.

"This feels like a lifetime ago! Thankfully I went for classic hair and makeup, so I don’t have any regrets about that. And, in fact, I still have this dress. It’s a deep navy raw silk Ralph Lauren gown with a bright emerald lining. I’ll never wear it again, but I love it too much to give it away.

I was clearly obsessed with the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and wanted to look exactly like Kate Hudson on the movie cover. I did the low updo with a flower and a yellow backless silk dress. Pretty close right?”

Emily Van Meter, Senior Operations Manager
Looking back at these I feel pretty good about my overall fashion sense from 10 plus years ago. But if I could do it all over again, I’m not sure if I would have gone with silver eyeshadow that one year…”
