It started earlier in the summer when Saucy and Snookie found these fabulous roller skates at a vintage store. They were sorely dirty and needed new laces. A visit with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser and some cute Derby Diva laces from eBay made them photoshoot ready.
Sweetheart was called into action for this event.
She gamely laced them up and took them for a spin around town. They really do look almost new, don't they? They're missing an eyelet if you look closely. They might need to go to a skate repair shop... but should we even bother? Nobody uses skates like this anymore. They'll just be photo props.
Sweetheart wore an old strapless wedding gown from the thrift shop that Saucy dyed pink. It was full length and not good for showing off the skates so it was safety-pinned into poufy pickups and further fluffed with a vintage petticoat.

On such a hot, beautiful summer night, model and photographer needed to stop for a cool treat.
Yes, she fell. Saucy tried to reach around and they both went down. Old cheerleading coach habits die hard and Saucy caught her around the waist. There was lots of laughter all round - including from spectators, and there were many.
A little girl passing by squealed to her mother "ooh look Mommy, a princess!" and she was right. ;)
