"Summer Formal" Annotated

I got this dress off ebay. I was on a bidding war with someone 'til the last minute. Now she knows who she's messing with. Ha!

The above photo was taken at a friend's wedding in Tagaytay last month. Here are the newlyweds -

And my friend, the blushing bride -

- who wore a *surprise* purple shoe underneath all that lace!

The invitation said we had to come in "summer formal" attire. That was controversial because no one knew what summer formal was. Hala. Anyway, here were our respective interpretations of the dress code. I see bright colors, prints and light fabrics -

I wanted to feel 50s (the decade, not my age). This dress had the requisite full skirt, midi length and semi-sweetheart neckline so I just HAD to get it. I now regret that I was always goofing around and hence, wasn't able to take a proper outfit photo. Next time I wear this though, I'll show you.

In the meantime, can I just say, that was the best wedding reception dinner that I've ever had the pleasure of taking part in. Su-per saraaap. And all those kids and toddlers performing? Winner!

I'm going to get some shut-eye now. I really don't feel sleepy yet because I've been sleeping the entire day. I blame the bed weather. But I have to prepare for our action-packed day tomorrow. My first order of business is to go to the shoe expo at the NBC Tent, where I will hopefully exercise restraint. 'Til next time! Enjoy the weekend everyone!
