I wanted to try something new. I figured what a better way to do it but in my law school org's Anniversary Party, themed Black and White. With all the magazine scanning and my short stint at a fashion magazine, I was dead set on trying on some of the latest trends. I had studs, the booties, the soft fabric and just enough hit of gold.
I had my curls done at Basement Salon, Shangri-la. My attendant new exactly what I wanted. If I culd live in Basement Salon, I would.
My makeup was done by the John Pagaduan for Shu Uemura. One perk I got from beauty blogging is meeting some of the best people in the cosmetic industry and John is one of those people. I kind of harassed him to do my makeup when I saw him at the Shu Uemura counter in Rustan's. I love what he did. He kept it simple making my lips the focus of the whole look.
I'm glad to say that the overall look was received well by my sisters. And not one sister there looked the same as we did in our typical shirt and jeans. Quorum is known for being trendy and stylish, but this night we crossed all boundaries and transformed into something more.
Really, I sometimes wish I'm back to law school just I could be with them more and those I left in my old school. sigh.
