Preview Ball

~ ~
D: Last Saturday night, we attended the Preview Ball with a few friends to support Rosanna! There was an abundance of OTT outfits that night given that the theme was an homage to Alexander McQueen. It was great fun to people watch and to spend some time with friends. We didn't get to tag along to the post-ball festivities because I was feeling under the weather.

Yay Sans!

Our hodgepodge of prettiness from Aranaz

Topman button-down, H&M suit, tartan pocket square, floppy bow tie
P: D's Divi bow tie makes a reapperance for McQ. Also for the theme, I had this pocket square sewed by D's local mananahi, made from fabric scrounged for in Kamuning.
P: This is a reasonably-priced basic suit I snatched from H&M. I had to have it altered with my tailor though, just to take in the waist, hem and sleeves. It's amazing how much a good fit makes a world of difference. You can have your store-bought suits tailor-fit as long as the shoulders and chest fit about right.

Saks Fifth Avenue x Tadashi dress, Aldo shoes, Aranaz bag
D: Sorry for the crappy state of my picture. This was after we got home, under the poor lighting of our landing.

I got this dress using my Chictopia points a long time ago! It turned out to be way too big for me so I let it sit at the back of my closet. I finally unearthed it and had Manang Rosie take it in for me. After a visit to the dry-cleaners, it seems as good as new again!

Rings from various high-street brands, vintage earrings
Check out the gorgeous beading on this Aranaz!

See you this weekend!
