Every year, my school holds this grande ball to raise money for a charity of their choice. Thousands of people dress up in fancy dresses, bow ties and high heels to dance, eat and raise money for a great cause! My friends and I began going last year and we decided to continue the fun again this year, on Friday night! It was so much fun and we had a GREAT time!
(Excuse some of the iPhone shots)
We began getting ready around 4PM and all got together around 5:30PM – ready to conquer this ball like nobody’s business! This year’s theme was ‘A Masked Affair’, so we took that theme and ran with it – masks, sultry looks, the whole nine yards! I think taking pictures with my ladies was my favourite part…when you have such a great core group of friends, it’s an amazing feeling!
My Mom found my dress (thrifted), and I couldn’t be more obsessed with it. It’s straight out of the 90’s and so when i got all dolled up and slipped it on, my friends and I came to the realization that it looks like something from Phoebe of F.R.I.E.N.D.S closet…and that’s when I fastened the black velvet choker around my neck (to complete the 90’s get-up, of course).
It was a fun night, and we raised tons of money! It’s a little sad to realize that this was the last ball of university since we are all graduating this year, but it was a night to remember, and that’s all that matters!
