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 IÂ 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! 🙂
