Everyone knows that we did back to back parties this year for our anniversary. Months prior to the two bacchanalian debaucheries, I've already taken my liver out for push-ups. Muscled and fit so that the free flowing alcohol could be met with proper exercise and stamina. Heeeh.
The Topshop party was the first, of course British high street would be the uniform. I went in feminine boho. Although my first pick was just a white frock and a leather cropped jacket. Effortless. British. (I only wanted to get drunk and party in an easy ensemble!) But one look from Vince (we picked our outfits together) and he goes, uh, NO!! He said: "I imagine you in a maxi skirt with lots of layers, this white dress is sooooo not you." FINE.
Hence the final outfit choice: a deep-v caftan, layered with a ruffled top, and still layered some more by a printed poncho. I cinched the dress with a lilac leather obi and added the floppy hat. I mean, if I'm going in bohemian luxe, i might as well take it all the way. So here we go!! =)
Shouldn't it be fish and chips? ahihihihi.
Pick your poison. Didn't notice it then, but were the drinks supppose to reflect the British flag?
The boys were the early birds. DJ Mars provided the first of the nights soundtracks.

The surprise DJ of the night didn't want to use the house equipment, so they had to take it out.
And replaced it with his own deck. Whoooaaaaaa.
Its Sam Milby!
And getting the party started. In fairness, it was a good mix of danceable pop, the kind thats best when its taken with heaps of alcohol.
Raffy, Pauline, Eugene and Vince. Sorry mother, i think i pushed your face there a bit with my floppy hat, Actually, i just realized that wearing a hat with a brim that wide makes you lose friends. They cant really come close. Hahahaha.
And this was how it was as the night progressed. Bum, Earl, Roy.
Thank you to Omar Ermita of Shu Uemura for making me pretty that night.
