At the Eleventh Hour

Hellooooo! How's your Holy Week going so far? I'm enjoying mine as I am feasting on sumptuous Swiss meals after a long day of observing Christian traditions. Anyway, since I was able to sneak off a few minutes today, I'd like to share what I wore in the batch party that I attended last 23rd of March. My batchmates and I are looking forward to the much-awaited culmination of our college life, aka graduation, which will start commencing this term for the others while which will happen for me next year February. That is, if everything else will sail smoothly. But before we part ways, the university held ID110's last grad ball in PICC. The party was entitled APO110.

my date for the night/ one of my few favorite persons in college/ my style sister, Lina Domingo. It's also worth mentioning that she's one of my tallest friends EVER. In my defense, she stands at 5'6 so don't bother asking me why I look like a midget standing next to her. Hahaha!

I know, I know. The big question is, "WHY ON EARTH DID YOU NOT WEAR A BALL GOWN?"
Truth is, I wasn't prepared at all. I only knew of the event two days prior to it so there was no way that I could've demanded my mom to accompany me to go to my favorite atelier shops in the metro. I did the best that I could in looking for an alternative cocktail dress and this is what I came up with. I know I could've done better. And probably Lina was right when she said that "Of all the people I know, YOU are the one who makes formal events a big thing". Time was my enemy so I had to make do with what's available. In all honesty, even though it's a tame one, I liked what I wore. Actually, I love it. It's ruffled all over and had it become a long dress, it would've looked like a ball gown too because the bottom is flared. I love the dress and if only it's mine, I would wear it again in another important event. Yep, I just borrowed it. I borrowed it from my 4 year old cousin! Perks of being a very petite girl :)

I wasn't wearing my heels when I took these pictures because they were shot when I reached home already. For the first time in my life, my feet gave up on me!!! I've never felt as much pain as I did that night. Hmm. Maybe that only meant I enjoyed APO110 so much! In fact, I did. It was so fun bumping into the other students who have made my almost 4 year stay in DLSU memorable and bearable. Animo! (Yes, those are band aids on my toes)
