First off. I have two things to say.
- I would like to send my sincerest condolences to the the Madiba clan. you are in our thoughts and prayers. He will be missed. someone said in '95 he touched a nation and at 95 he touched the world. I couldn't have said it better myself. lala ka kgotso tata.
- I would like to give a shout out to whoever tempered with my goody bag last night. it strikes me as amazing you would feel that you deserved more than I even though we paid exactly the same amount for what would have been an amazing night had you not existed.
ANYWAY in happier news! last night Material Girls and Chique Beauty collaborated to bring us the fabulousness that was 2fab high tea. for weeks I have been pining away waiting on the edge of my seat for the 6th of December to come, wondering if it would be wise to spend such an amount on one night. let me tell you something SMEARS. its true that instinct is our guide in life because tjo! my instinct led me to a night worth every penny. good fashion, good company, good food and great entertainment from our MC Takkies (FlychicksSA). this girl had us dancing in our less than comfortable (made for sitting) heels. I learned a few things. from dancing in the club to dirty dancing for my man..ooh future husband best believe it. it's on!
ALL the ladies were dressed to the nines. I really love it when people understand that nights like this call for people to pull out all the stops. anyhow I think I write too much, wordy blog or not, I need to create some imagery here. brace yourself :)
AS usual me and Terry arrived like ridiculously earlier than everyone else. You already know the drill. LOL!
I FINALLY got to wear my ANNIE KLEIN II blazer and strap heels. the funny part about the jacket was that the zip got stuck half way, but people actually thought that was the design. you gotta love happy accidents!
AND while we waited for the ball to get rolling, we met some interesting people.
