And here it is...the ball photo from 7th form! Like Clare, I had to do a bit of creative cropping to avoid having my old school friends come & hunt me down (although saying that, this photo came from facebook! The liquid satin look was big in '97 ;) I saved up for ages to get that dress - it cost me $175 (a small fortune) and as it was so ridiculously expensive, I had to buy it myself! I recently gave it to a friend who has a costume hire shop here in town, as I think its dancing days are over (with this girl in it anyway...although it does still fit!).
I've left my friend in this one - with a master plan though! I lost touch with this lovely gal somewhere along the line, and as is the case with girls, she's most likely gotten married, making it totally impossible to find her :( This photo's from 1998, I was in my first year of uni and did a teaching placement in the intermediate section of Waikato Diocesan School for Girls - Helen (my missing friend!) was an English student on a gap year. Added bonus of being a young'un on teaching placement, going to the school ball! That was one awesome dress, I borrowed if from my friend Jo. Gorgeous, gorgeous dress.
Should anyone happen to recognise my companion in silver - her name back then was Helen Nancy Saunders (or Sanders, something along those lines!) - please send her my way!!0
With those blasts from the past I'll leave you for now, we have a student to teach & a great big walnut tree to play under :)
Happy Wardrobe Wednesday!
