Shoes, Wigs and Other Stuff

Do not buy shoes before checking with your teacher.
Some shoes are more suitable than others for some children.
Remember soft shoes stretch, so don't buy "room to grow" or they look untidy
No retailer will exchange shoes which have been worn or marked in any way. So when you get your mail order shoes, make sure you try them on carpet first or you won't be able to exchange them even if they do not fit.

Dress Bags - These should really be called dress cases. They are lightweight but are slightly more rigid than the normal lemon slice ones. Not only for travelling (especially on aircraft) but also for permanent storage of your dress while it is at home. These are made in NZ and are a great buy. . They are an original design by Helen Doyle.
