Let’s forget about throwback Thursday for a few minutes because Wednesday is my favorite day of the week. Say hello to Throwback Wednesday.
Almost a year ago, my friends and I did a little dance to a mix of Peggy Lee’s “Fever” and Si Cranstoun’s “50’s Pin Up” at a fashion show / birthday party as a way to introduce our group, The Sunny Island PinUps. The birthday boy was a photographer. I think that explains the fashion show part.
It was hard to rehearse together due to our different work schedules. In the end, there were a few bloopers here and there, but we had tons of fun. Most of the dresses were custom made and I got lots of help with my make-up and hair (I didn’t know how to manage it back then). The lovely Carla Lune did my hair.
Fancy looking, isn’t it? I miss having red hair.
I really wanted an excuse to share these pictures because they remind me of a fun, great night I had during a time of sadness. It was nice to forget about the negative stuff for a tiny while.
Denisse AKA Denixa. I wish I had her confidence!
Singing happy birthday.
Johnelly. The comedienne.
Geraldine. The lady boss.
Sadly, there’s not a close-up picture of Michelle. She’s like a mommy to us, because she’s a real life mommy!
Michelle is the one in the light blue dress. Look at that proud mommy stance!
Carla Lune. Our favorite Pin Up.
A fun smile inspired by a fun night.
Thanks for enjoying this trip down memory lane with me!
