Last coveted by:
Brenda Lee - grew up in a beachside town in California so it is no wonder she barely spent a day in high school, as every living breath was spent on the sand... luckily Brenda was a smart girl and still nevertheless carried a B-average report card and won a full scholarship to the university of her choice, for her outstanding beach volleyball skills.

Natalie Fish, in her youth, as well as her old age loved the water. When she wasn't working at the pet shop (in the tank department) you could find her lounging by her pool, or at the beach. This was her favorite and she held on to it for many years after she was willing to ever put it on again.

Belinda was a cow-punk rocker, and an avid reader. She played the guitar and loved to hang out with her poodle and her long-term partner and love. She loved Los Angeles as much as she loved Texas and she always said "blame it on the music" but between you and me - it's really all because of the food.

She always wore her hair piled up atop of her head. She was the Spirit of Fiesta, and dreamed of someday going to Mexico for real. Her grandmother bought her this dress to wear for her 18th birthday and she was the belle of the ball and felt more grown-up than she ever had before.

Last adorned by:
Sherisse had a secret admirer who sent her flowers once a month, always on the 2nd Sunday - and always the same big magenta flowers. She never knew what they were called. One day the admirer made himself known, and low and behold, it was her best friend who she secretly cherished and admired already. They got married and lived happily ever after. Shortly after she found out who, she asked him "why the magenta flowers?" He said it was because one day he saw her in this dress and thought this must be her favorite flower, because in it, she blossomed.

Previously loved by:
Prior to Covid, well a decade or so before, Gloria was quite the party girl. And she had the wardrobe to prove it. A secretary in a chiropractor's office by day, she loved to throw on a smock or bias cut number and kick up a heel in the evening. Eventually Gloria got married and had a daughter. She was 10 when Covid hit the world in 2020. Gloria realized she would not be hitting the dancefloor or nightlife scene anytime soon so...

Circa: 1990's - Marrika Nak

Previously adored by:
Nikki was a healthy rosy-faced girl of a woman. Like many girls, she was always concerned about her weight, and tried every diet in the book. Finally she lost all of the weight she imagined she wanted to and then some. She got compliments and fit in all the clothing she loved. Then, one day, she realized she wasn't happy. Also her boyfriend wasn't happy. She asked him why? I miss the "old you" he said. So did she. Slowly she let go of her stringent ways and put on exactly half the weight she had lost. Not only that but she realized she already looked amazing in literally everything anyways. And this gorgeously standout prairie skirt was no different.

Candi sang in a cover's band - they played pop 40s and rock music and performed at weddings' golf tournaments and high school proms. Her favorite band to cover was Fleetwood Mac, and she loved to imitate Stevie Nicks... She loved wearing sleek and colorful comfortable summer dresses, that she could move around in and dance the night away... mixing and matching with scarves and her fabulous shoe & bootie collection was key...

Last Coveted by:
Cheri - could not ever be convinced to put on a dress for anything. No way no how. She was a jeans girl through and through. Until her final year in high school, when secretly, Cheri had a crush. Lo and behond - her secret crush asked her to the Prom. Cheri forgot all about her aversion to dresses and stunned the whole school when she walked in, in this little number with Sam on her arm. Needless to say a lot of heads turned and tongues wagged and Cheri maybe not have won the Homecoming crown but she was the Queen in every way.
