No fierce shots, only smiling faces for this post. :)
An outfit post. FINALLY!
I attended the debut last November, with a dress code that brought out my creativity. Yssa requested my brother to be a rose at her debut and invited Miko and I to celebrate her birthday with her. I was stuck as to what to wear. The restrictions were that women were to wear floor-length, pastel/ light colored gowns, strictly no black. Sadly, I had no such dress to fit theme. I would normally never consider buying a dress for a single event but due to the lack of time and narrowing of options, I had no other choice but to go out and buy one.
I was able to find this dress only 2 days before the event. At first, the dress was too loose. But because it’s style was original and it’s price way lower than what I intended to pay for, I bought it despite the unappealing fit. Yep, this dress was a steal!
So on the day of the event, I had the dress altered to fit, put on necklace, splashed on bright red lipstick, threw on a pair of heels and ta-dah: an old hollywood themed outfit.

All in all, the debut was a blast! It was so nice to take a break from all the academics, be with friends and eat your heart out. The event resonated with good vibes and smiles.

Normally, I would have included just how much this dress actually cost me but in the words of my mother, “you don’t have to be an open book to everyone— leave room for the imagination”. It’s not customary that bloggers hide the price of their clothes, but just this once I’ll make an exception. ;)
It was pretty windy that night and my hair was all over the place. Which would explain why I’m holding it in more than half of these photos! Shoot struggles. HAHA.
