you can try to save me if you're crazy.

So I know I haven't updated in forever. And of course, that's because I've been busy with Grad and the Grad ball and so many other events. But now, summer is here!! I am quite excited. 
So my first event was High School Night 2012 last March 17. 
I found my dress at a store called "Belleza", which happens to be my Mom's full name. Haha. It's a nice white and dark blue and grey patterned dress. The material is light and easy, so it's comfortable. It also has two layers, one layer that covers the entire body, and another layer that falls on the front. 
I wanted to wear it in a different way to give it a little shape, so I pulled the front layer in the middle and held it together with a nice silver brooch. 
I wore a black bag (lol I forgot the name, sorry), with a silver chain and a quilted pattern.

 Now for the shoes! We actually looked EVERYWHERE for shoes. They were the hardest to find. It may seem easy, as I always thought, to look for simple black platform heels, may they be pumps or strappy heels. But it is so not.
The biggest problem we had was the height of the heel. For someone who doesn't really where heels all the time, it was difficult to find the style of heels that I wanted with a heel height that seemed reasonable enough for a night out, and even to wear on a casual basis once in a while. So yeah, I was finally able to find a pair that seemed pretty cool, but at 5 inches. That's the highest I've ever owned and worn. I got them on sale at Celine! Haha.

Now just a few pictures from High School Night... enjoy!

been waiting for the stars to fall.

So we had a shooting one day, and they had to curl my hair. When I got home, I started playing with it and twirling it while I was working. And it turned out like this. It looked really cute actually. HAHA. Also, I'm planning on buying myself a curling/flat iron soon because I really want to be able to style my hair more often. And you know, not have to use accessories.

I was kind of bored one afternoon and just wanted to do some kind of random outfit thingy. So I took my boots (which I haven't been able to wear out yet because an event hasn't come up--but don't worry, one will come up haha) and got a dress that I haven't been really able to wear out either. The only time I was able to wear it out was with a white crop top over it. But on its own, I haven't been able to wear it yet. It's a really nice dress that can be used casually and formally. The boots gives it a more casual style, though.

I went kind of in a different direction with this one. This dress, I actually wore to my high school night (aka our school's "prom"/fellowship session) in my Junior year. It's a really cool formal dress, and I love the style cause it's the ballerina sort of style with the bubble of the skirt. And of course, you don't normally wear this with boots. You wear a formal dress like this with platform heels. So yeah, just wanted to play around with this outfit. And it doesn't look half bad!

Sorry if this post is a little boring/sabog. HAHA. These past few weeks have been so hectic, no kidding. Graduation is coming up in a few weeks (I CRY) and everyone's catching up with final requirements and exams and grades, so yeah.
Another post real soon, as soon as I get all the dresses I need for the upcoming events (Photoshoot for Grad invites, photoshoot for official Grad portraits, High School Night 2012, and Graduation). Yup, need so many things for the next weeks! I also need a purity ring, which will be given to us by our parents on High School Night. 
Whoo! Let's do this.
