Masquerade


Inspired by the pictures that I saw below,
I searched high and low for a mask (I wanted a cat mask so badly)
and found the only decent one which came in a children's party pack.


Then I took out my red party dress (which technically belongs to my sister:P),
wore my favourite mac ruby woo shade
and pretended I was in some masquerade ball having the time of my life.
I've never been to one before, how sad is that?
Now my wish is to attend at least one masquerade
ball in my lifetime.

Have any of you been to one?
Maybe you can share with me your experiences...


Let me show you the pictures that are responsible
for the silly indulgence above:)

Now I shall continue my search for a cat mask!

Oh yes, I've to tell you that I just finished watching 500 days of summer
and I loved everything about it, though it was pretty heart wrenching too.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt was nothing short of amazing,
I really felt all the poignant emotions he portrayed in the movie.
And I couldn't adore Zooey Deschanel more than I do now!
So, go watch it if you haven't and tell me what you think about it later!

Oh Sher, I always love your pics!
I haven't been to any either, I have an Italian friend that while being in Venice with her family, they went to a mask's shop and did amazing pics... my God I still remember them. It was something just wonderful!

Haha I have the exact cat mask in the first pic! I got it when I was seven for Halloween & I'm certain it's the exact one. Only I didn't wear it quite so well... If you want to find them, around Halloween, pretty much every store will have one!
And I love the mask you have now! I've never been to a masqued ball either =(

AH! and i'm dying to see 500 Days!

Ooo I love your masquerade look, Sher! I have a ton of masks, but I've never been to a real masquerade ball either. I would love to go to a black and white masquerade ball- they seem so dramatic.

I haven't seen the movie yet (I love JGL, but I was worried it would be too heart-wrenching)- I might have to see it on your recommendation though ;)

Hope you had a great weekend!

Rose said...

Valeriesoh said...

ooo... I know masquerades. went to one a couple years ago in new york, it was something for a fashion charity and I thought the masks who be a brilliant way for me to say whatever I wanted without anyone recognizing me. heehee.. but what happened is that the mask actually focused all the attention on the eyes, the most recognizable sign. So.... romantics.

love your dress. I used to go to malaysia all the time.
