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).
even though we call it a matric dance, for the sake of universal recognition, i titled this post ‘prom’
as a grade 11 representative, i had the honour of attending the 2013 matric dance. it’s been one of those dreams of mine because i crave that sort of cinderella moment – getting your hair, make-up and nails done, putting on a fancy dress and heels and then taking tons of photos to prove it, which, mind you, was exactly what i did.
i felt like an occasion like that was exactly the type of thing you blog about, so here i am. lol.
what i wore
- dress from truworths
- shoes from truworths
- clutch and jewellery were a gift from my mom from china
