Fashion Show (Part II)

Well, I must apologize for the delay in getting this posted...and I must let you know that the content of this post is not what it was originally intended to be. I was going to follow up with more pictures of the fashion show, the beautiful table settings, gifts, and a recap of our morning speaker. However, due to the comments and the pictures on my camera that followed the lovely morning, I had no choice but to take this in a new direction. Every time I pulled up the pictures for this post I just started laughing and lost all concentration to get this done. You are in for a real treat! Following the lovely time we had at the Ladies Spring Brunch, we (my sisters, mom and I) all went back to my parent's house to relieve my dad of his babysitting duties (THANKS DAD!!!!) and to go through a few of our belongings. Since my mom and dad are in the process of a MAJOR clean out, my sisters and I have all been instructed to come get our stuff. So, this particular trip was intended to go through the closet containing old formal dresses from past high school homecoming dances, proms, sorority formals, bridesmaids... We pulled them all out, one-by-one each claiming our own and reminiscing each occasion for which they were worn. Angie was the first of the three of us to attend high school dances...take a look...notice the green one on the right in the picture below-this a was a hit back in 1991!!

These (featured in the photo above) were all worn by Angie in High School. They will now be fancy "princess" dresses for the little girls to play dress-up.

Can you tell that they already love them? These little darlings were thrilled to be taking the dresses home...but not before they got a proper trying-on of course...


Strike a pose!


This is one of mine (above) from college...the color was just stunning on this little blonde doll!

A maternity formal? I think not! ...If only you could see the back...

not quite the perfect fit it was 13 years ago!

What a beauty!

What a pair! You can see how special they felt?! Well, this one was mine but Emma loved how sparkly it was!! She looked like a mermaid as she walked out of the room with it trailing behind her.

Okay, saving the best for last...
(This model’s face has been concealed to protect her identity! LOL!!!)Anyone in the mood to dance? We have a few dresses you can borrow! I guess this is our take on "27 dresses"...you should see the collecion. But...I promise this was the best of the bunch!

Finally!!! I've been waiting for Part II.
You took some great pictures Amy! I just think you really need to show her face though. If she's going to be zany enough to try on those lovelies, (while she's pregnant no less) the least you could do is let everyone see the side of Angie that we get to see. Oh! Whoops! I wasn't suppose to divulge who the model was, was I? Oh well. We have more where those came from. We'll save those for another post...Love ya, Mom

Okay, after reading mom's comment, I guess I'm GLAD she doesn't blog! Oh, the things that could end up on there!!! Yowza.

And I'm breathing a sigh of relief because this post could've been much worse. MUCH worse. Maybe you love me more than I thought... :)

I totally remember that blue dress like it was yesterday... only there was no baby bump back in the early 90s (as a matter of fact I remember all of those dresses). What a fun trip down memory lane and a great twist on the fashion show!

It's not nearly as amusing now that my friends are finding their way here.

Just sayin'.

Hey! I wore that blue sequiney long dress to MK Seminar in Dallas - Angie let me borrow it!!!! :-) I loved that dress! Lol! Those pictures were awesome, so cute to see the girls dressed up, I bet they were LOVING that day! And Ang.....love those shots of you! :-)
Amy....your haircut looks great! I've been thinking of doing Locks of Love, too, although I'd have to go a lot shorter than you did to get enough hair, but I think I just might do it. You're inspiring. :-) And Kenzie's cute as ever!

My aunt has done a party where everyone wears their wedding dresses...wouldn't that be fun?!

Angie said...

Wow... I did NOT know that so many people that I know had checked in here. Lovely.
