Its a Formal Occasion

(published 5 July 2012)








(the house where the pre was held - amazing house owned by someone in my grade!!)







The Formal
The stress and lead up for this day had been building up since day one at school this year, as the school puts it, it was "The Biggest Event that we would have on our social calender this year"
The senior formal in Australia is a formal occasion, where you wear floor sweeping dresses and get to feel like a red carpet celebrity for one night!
There were many things to be organised..
   - A dress (the most important thing I needed for the big night)
   - Shoes (which i luckily already had the perfect pair to go with this dress)
   - Jewellery
   - Makeup (got my done at Mac at Myers)
   - Hair (got it done at Stefan's)
   - Clutch
   - get nails done (got fake nails :)
   - Limo
   - Who was having the pre (before party)
   - Who was having the post (after party)
   - table groups for the event as there was a sit down entree, main and desert!

I got my dress from Light in the box:

I was a little bit worried about buying such an important dress online, but it all worked out perfectly, and I highly suggest it! This website was great, as it came on time, was the exact colour which showed up on the site, and it's so good because there's about 20 different colours you can order this dress in, and in many different sizes!
I got this dress at such a good price and it was exactly what i was looking for, i was so happy, and i would have been willing to pay way more for this dress, especially because it was made so well!! Other girls in my grade payed up to $1,000 for dresses!
