fashion | about a week ago… prom 2014

before i start this post, i just wanted to take this time to be excited about Vodacom In The City tonight – i wrote about how awesome the concert was last year here, and i’m super psyched again to go for the 3rd year in a row! with acts like crystal fighters, mgmt, rudimental & phfat performing, you don’t wanna miss out! you can still get tickets here. see you there 🙂

to paraphrase the beloved high school musical 3, it was the night of my nightmares and simultaneously the night of my dreams. after months of planning and stressing; weeks of gripping anxiety and fear because this giant, daunting event was finally upon me and i didnt want to be let down; days of intense pampering (the weave game, the nail game, the make up game, the eyebrow game – wednesday through friday ended up feeling like the olympics) – it all led up to one momentous occasion: matric dance (prom).

aaaaaaaand just like that – it’s over. and truth be told – it was amazing. i had this beautiful dress from Yeye Oge and shoes from Zoom, my eyebrows done at the EyeCandy Brow Bar in Woolworths, Sandton, my make up done by the lovely people at Mac, Cresta, my nails done at the Skin Essence Spa, and my hair done at Victoria’s Salon. the glam squad did pretty well, if i do say so myself 🙂

seeing as it was actually my dance (unlike when i went last year), the camera stayed with my personal paparazzi, my dad. i’ll post some photos of the amazing decor in the Dainfern Indaba Hotel on my facebook page! we had our official after-party at randlords, and my word, is it a beautiful club.

overall, it was a beautiful night, & many thanks go out to my teachers who organised it, my parents for everything they did & my date & friends for making it a spectacular night 🙂

we had to take a ‘think like a man too essence shoot‘ type picture, because the revolution has to be televised – #CarefreeBlackGirl2k14

without further adieu (happy now, khensani?), here are some MD pictures taken by an incredible photographer with an even more incredible ‘stache (ThatGWG).

shoutout to my birthgiver, she is truly AMAZING!!!
