current aesthetic: Titania – Queen of the Fairies

“If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.”

― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago I attended a ball at Doltone House for the UNSW Science Society. Their theme was “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” so I decided to base my outfit around the concept of “Titania”. In Shakespeare’s play, she is the queen of the fairies and was tricked by a fairie (through magicks) into falling in love with an “ordinary working human”, who was transformed into some half-donkey like creature.

I haven’t actually read this play (I’m sorry I’m a #FakeFan) but I liked #theConcept 🙂

I was surprised to see that only a few girls followed the theme and NO GUYS followed it. At all. 😦 If I were a guy I’d have gone full out with the same pale cream coloured flowy fabric but like, a tunic or something. And curled my hair. 😦 Just an idea if any of you are in the future with a similar theme thinking “WHAT DO I WEAR.” Please, go all out… and tag me (even if it’s 2098! As long as I’m not dead I’ll look at it!)

(I considered going with an androgynous style myself but I’ve actually already had the dress for a while and didn’t want to spend more lol). Anyway, enough gently roasting and onto the OOTD ^_^

Food consumed

TBH I wasn’t very impressed with the main course. The entree and the desserts were superb (I’m sad I wanna eat the chicken again it was that good) but the steak was not… done well (it was done medium and still wasn’t tasty and it was a little tough to eat lmfao?) rip… and the alcohol wasn’t nice either :I But the sparkling water was good LOL

 

Entree (“poached chicken, eggplant and chickpea puree, dukkah with harissa dressing”):

RIP Instagram not formatting properly ;;

For makeup & hair, I wanted to complete the look elegantly, and while the hair turned out quite different to what I was aiming for (rip I’m basic with hairstyle skills) I believe I achieved that anyway ^_^

Anyway overall I had lots of fun! Hadn’t had such a formal event since… year 12 formal so it was a great excuse to dress up again ^w^

Next year I wanna go to NSA’s event though :’3c because I missed it this year;;

Till next time!
