Have you ever encountered the experience when something looks 100 times better on, than off? This gold, embellished dress fell under that scenario. I was extremely impressed as to how beautiful this dress was once I had it on. I loved the elegant vibe: starting from the subtle v- neckline, to the midi length cut. Moreover, the number of compliments that I had received from the night was numerous. Thank you Virgos Lounge for such a gem.

I wanted to toughen up the overall look with these black heels. Whilst I do believe that I am quite good when it comes to wearing heels, I knew these bad boys weren't going to last me the night. Despite having such consideration prior to leaving the house, I decided to challenge my pain tolerance anyway. Let's put it this way- I walked up and down Rundle Mall since 7pm before watching the Rundle Mall A/W parade, socialised at the after party (photos here and here), walked on grass at the River Torrens for hours, and danced my way till 2am... I was basically on my feet for seven, long hours, and it was to the extent that my legs were beginning to cramp every time I took another step. So why exactly did I have to tell you this story anyway? I have absolutely no idea as there is no moral to this. I would still go through such experience and pain if I had to. However, I must put it out there that I don't do this on a regular basis as comfort is definitely the way to go.
