I have this event coming up soon. It's the Alterchitecture Awarding Ceremonies which will be held on the 5th of January at the UP Theater. It's a cocktail event. I haven't been to any cocktail event in the longest time, nor have I ever been to any awarding ceremony. With this one, though, I'm sort of required since it was my org, UAPSA-UPD, that spearheaded the whole event. It's a nationwide contest and a lot of Architecture majors joined. I heard that someone from Davao even won. But that's enough about that.
Anyway, I did say it's a cocktail dress event, right? I decided to just wear whatever I have. I have a few dresses anyway. My mom decided against it. She said none of my dresses were
appropriate for a cocktail party. So, she told we were going shopping. We headed to SM Megamall. God knows how long since I last visited that mall. With acads and other events filling up my sched, I stayed stuck in Quezon City. At least now, I have an excuse to go back to Ortigas. We headed straight to Forever 21 once we got there. She told me to start
roaming around and just grab anything that caught my eye and we'll take whatever I liked after fitting. I ended up fitting eight pieces. Most of the dresses I saw were asymmetrical. I guess it's all the rage now -- again. I know it's against the rules to take photos of yourself while you're
inside the dressing room, but I had to take photos so that my mom can see the dresses I fit and help me decide which to fit. After several minutes ended up playing around with the stuff I picked...
I apologize, Forever 21. I was having fun with your pieces. The third dress got both my and mom's approval. It's simple and classic. I don't want to look really flashy at the ceremony. The fourth one is really a shirt dress and skirt combo. Mom picked that purple top. I didn't leave Forever 21 with just the dress, though. At the last minute, I grabbed a pair of black leggings. Farrah says I have way too many leggings and I never wear them, since every time she asks me what I'm doing, I say I'm looking for or buying leggings. I really just have three but thanks to Farrah, I'm compelled to wear leggings in the next few days. I'm usually clad in shorts, so I guess I should take a break from showing my legs to the world.
Mom and I had crepes at Crepes & Creme afterwards. We got a Buy 2 Take 1 coupon so we used it and were forced to eat THREE crepes in one sitting. Mom got the Fiesta, I went for Cappuchoco and we decided to make our own for the third one. We had a crepe with avocado ice cream, peach slices, and cheesecake bits. They're crepes are yummy and affordable. Plus, the avocado ice cream was divine! :)
Shopping with mom was awesome! Next thing that we have to do is find a pair of shoes that would go with my new dress. Mom has suggested something. We'll go shoe-hunting next time. *wink*
