Way back and wordful Whensday



For today, we are going way, way back.
Dateline: September 1986
My age: 17
Occasion: Matric farewel dance (I think senior prom in American terms)
Off course, it was high 80's fashion - look at the big hair! I designed the dress myself and my hair was just long enough to do a "proper" hair do after my bout with Alopecea ariata - I need to blog about that!

My date for the night was just a good class friend, Johan.

Me and my two good buds Alet and Lani-Marie. I have no idea what became of any of the two.
For some more blasts from the past, head over to Cheryl's and play along and if like me, and Angie at 7 Clown circus's Wordful Wednesday you have to "talk" about your photographs, head over there to have a look as well.

  8. Lovely dress! You have many talents, that's for sure.

    Your school friend Johann reminds me very much of John Daley, an actor who plays Dr. Lance Sweets on Bones. Funny that they basically share a name too. Here are some photos: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm740007168/nm0197855
