July 28, 1964, Tuesday. Bought a Formal and called Dave Kendal.
Mommy embarrassed me so much I cried for an hour. She wanted me to go with Dave so she called his house and asked where he was, but couldn’t say who she was for her daughter’s sake! After I got over that, we went shopping to the Brides Shop in Beverly Hills. We found a yellow Formal. It fitted tight in the front, with a bouffant back. We bought it even though it was too small. I got enough nerve to call Dave’s house and talked to his mother. I love her. She said he’d love to go with me to the Coronation. Went to the Saffron Meeting, than to Robert’s Restaurant. Boys told me of a party tomorrow.
It embarrassed me so much I cried for an hour. However, she knew how to take my mind off my feelings… She took me to the Beverly Hills Bridal Shop and bought me the most beautiful Movie Star Formal I’d ever seen. Mom even altered the Formal to fit like a glove and actually sewed me into it. I wish I go back and tell her how much I love her and appreciate how much she loved me too.
