Here are some photos of the DG Gamma Tau (Texas Christian University) Chapter's installation in 1956:

Ok, some of the dresses in the top and middle photos are so cute. It's so funny how alot of the same silouettes (strapless, teal length, etc) are in fashion right now.

Yes, the strapless and tea-length are in fashion, but I don't remember seeing lots of fluff and ruffles lately.

I am LOVING the DG picture of the day dresses, circa 1956! My favorite is the confident young lady sitting second from the left. I love her entire outfit, right down to her pumps and gloves and the pin on her bodice. (It won't surprise you to know that I am crazy about that show "Madmen" set in 1960. I love retro fashion.)

Me too! Even though I couldn't stand Kenley on this season of Project Runway, I thought her clothes were absolutely adorable!

I think I'd enjoy it if we still wore dresses like these....

I love the TCU pics!!! The middle one looks like it was taken in the old ballroom- it was torn down earlier this summer.

Everything "retro" in this thread is just a delight to see. I particularly enjoy newspaper articles... some of those names haven't seen Greek life announcements in so many years.

If somebody will tell me how I can scan pics and post, I can put some early 80's pics from SMU. They are pretty fun.
