After yesterday posting all those gorgeous evening dresses for the Manor Ball I was looking back at some photos of me at the Stillbirth Foundation Ball over the past four years.
Amazingly I have gotten a lot out of one particular dress as I have worn it three out of four years (this makes the husband very happy as you know most men cringe when you say “I have to buy a new dress”)
The first year I wore it I was 8 months pregnant

The second year of the event I got away with wearing it again – this time not pregnant and feeling very glamourous.
The third time I got to wear it was at this years ball – four weeks after having Indiana (looking rather tired compared to the other photos!!). Must say I was not as comfortable this year as the breast feeding boobs were not allowing me to relax!

This little number slipped in to the picture for ball no 3 in 2008 (felt it was a bit much three years in a row so decided on something new).

Hubby certainly can’t complain after the use I have had from the lovely red dress (I have worn it to a number of other events so probably got at least 5-6 wears out of it making it less than $100 a wear!).
Next year it is time for a new dress – maybe I will pick one of the others I chose for the Willow Manor Ball.

  1. You look so beautiful in this dress Leanne. Red is absolutely your colour isn’t it? Mind you, the black and white also looks fab. How’s the house going? Final days….thinking of you and hoping your energy levels are okay. Meredith xo.
    p.s. I love it here.
