I saw my friend Leslie a few months back and she gave me some negatives from our Grade 12 Grad. I took them down to London Drugs and had them turned into photos. When’s the last time you did that?? 😉
In amongst the photos of pastel prom dresses and ill fitting tuxedos were a couple of photos of me and my grad date Todd.
It’s SO COOL seeing these photos. Up until today I only have one grainy Polaroid of us dressed up for grad – so seeing these photos 28 years later is such a trip!!
My dress was hand-sewn by the wardrobe mistress at my Dad’s theater company. I pulled out photos from various vintage magazines and showed her what I wanted. It fit me like a glove. The rhinestone necklace is something I still have and wear.
It’s no wonder that when Todd and I walked into the ballroom everyone stopped talking and turned to look at us. We look like heathens with our matching mohawks! 🙂
