When good (prom fashion inspiration) comes from 'Bad'

We take our inspiration this week from the colors of an over-the-top television show that addicted audiences: The sunshine yellow of a hazmat suit and the icy blue of an illegal substance. Yellow dresses are hot. Tuxedos in color are retro hot. • Let it be known: tb-two* is NOT endorsing the making of crystal blue meth, neither are we endorsing drug use of any kind. Instead, we took some visual cues from this show about looking good. • This week's PROM WITH A POP: Breaking Bad
