I had a tough night last night but a bit better this morning. It's the CESA (chemeng student association) ball tonight, and I didn't want to go but I felt obligated to because I'm receiving an award. I would much rather be at home with my parents this weekend. However, on the morning of the ball, I've finally started to pay attention to what I'm going to wear. Had a bit of a dilemma with shoes, though - I have a gorgeous pair of black leather two-inch heels, very classy, but my little black dress is not shiny so it didn't go. I bought the dress for the Latin and Ballroom Christmas Ball, and wore it with my dancing shoes - but I can't wear my dancing shoes to the CESA ball because they have soft felt soles.
Fortunately a pair of 10-denier black tights tones things down enough for the black shoes to go well enough. And they're very comfortable shoes.
I was feeling a bit self conscious because I've lost weight but the styling of my dress is such that when I put it on I still felt like it looked quite good. That was a nice surprise :) And I found the necklace I wear with it and remembered how I did my make-up last time that turned out well xD
I'm tempted to see if I can get Jamie or Rob (if they're there) to do a bit of proper dancing at the ball. I haven't been to dancing in a couple of months (cos of the depression and anaemia) but I can still remember my cha cha and rumba moves, I think. And if it's on carpet the black shoes will be fine for dancing in; the heel is just the right height.
