Blogging from my phone today because our internet connection at home sucks. Fortunately, my data plan holds and I can still browse using my phone. :D
These are photos from a few weeks back when C and I attended one of the events his mom was hosting. All C told me was I did not have to wear anything grand, just a dress would do and I don’t even have to wear heels! Yay, right?
Wrong!! Good thing I had this impulse buy from Zara - a certain little black dress that had this nice back detail and I got for half its’ original price due to the end of season sale. I had my hair done at Blowout Bar Manila (clearly my choice of hair stylist) and my face done by a MUA, Nica Serania. :)
One of the best things ever was knocking C’s socks off when I got out of the cab in front of their office (where we agreed to meet up). C literally needed a moment to absorb how I looked (and I was still wearing an oversized cardigan at that point) and went “wow”. I swear, I felt like the protagonist in a chick flick. Hahaha!
Off we went to Midas Hotel (got stuck in heavy traffic for more than an hour because it was raining so hard) and the moment we stepped in the venue, I thanked myself for taking the time to get dolled up and wearing heels because the guests were IN LONG DRESSES (or cocktail dresses). Apparently, all the guests are (past and current) presidents from one of his mom’s organizations.
C brought along his sports coat (although nowadays he usually is in one, really) and my LBD saved the day, so we did not look underdressed at all. I think my messy updo also made me look more formal, and my professionally applied makeup did not wear off while we made rounds (being introduced to everyone).
Later that night, I removed the pins holding my hair up as C reluctantly asked me to dance (we have never slow danced in public - in private, we have amazing dance parties) to the prodding of one of his mom’s friends. Overall, it was a fun night! I’d do it again if I ever get invited next year but I probably will not listen to C when he tells me “just wear a dress, babe”. Hahaha!
