Acoustic Night




 Sheer maxi skirt: Ark
Peep-toe wedge boots: New Look
Cropped top (bought a larger size to wear it off-shouldered): Topshop
Double-finger cross ring: ASOS.com
Studded rings: H&M
Shield ring: Primark


A group of my coursemates organized a series of events to raise funds for a local creative charity, Bloc Projects. I attended two of the events which were held at a local bar, just across the street from my place. The first one was a Date Auction Night. Basically, the organizers got their most eligible guy and girl friends to volunteer to be "sold off" as dates. One by one, they would be introduced by the DJ, get asked a couple of questions and then, the bidding begins. Bidding usually starts at around £5, raising pound by pound to what ever the highest bid is, depending on the "quality" of the guy/girl hehe. The winner will have to fork out the amount before the deal is sealed and all the money goes to charity.

I hope this doesn't sound odd, but I "won" a date with a girl! Haha...nah, she's actually my friend and I was trying to up the bids, but ended up winning instead. Luckily I had enough cash on me, so I paid up and now she owes me a date :P

The other event I attended was the Acoustic Night. This time round, they got friends and friends of friends to play some live music. Donations were in the form of entrance fees and if you wanted to make a song request, you can pop some money into the donation jar, too. Pretty neat, huh?

I didn't get a picture of what I wore to the Date Auction Night, but this was what I wore to the Acoustic Night. The sheer maxi skirt is so comfy and I love the way it flows when I walk. I was kinda dissapointed people were more interested in my rings, than my sheer maxi skirt, though...only joking. I got so many compliments for the shield ring. I would proudly tell them I got it from Primark, then see the look of surprise on their faces. Primark has definitely upped their game.

  2. Love the maxi skirt - the fact that it's sheer makes it just perfect! I've been on the hunt for something "maxi" myself... hopefully a dress if I can find one I like!

  4. Those are really creative events to fundraise. I've been in organizations at school that hold date auctions, and I think it's funny that you won a date with your friend! I'm sure you'll have a good girl's night with her. The Acoustic Night sounds like a lot of fun, too!

    This is an amazing outfit. It's not something I would ever dream up myself, but it's so cool :) I like how it's provocative without showing too much skin! I'm impressed with the rings, too. I really need to start expanding my ring collection! xo

  5. omgosh, love how you teamed everything up. It's so pretty ^_^ You're really pretty aswell. haha, that's great, how much did you end up paying? It doesn't matter too much as it's for charity :P Your cross ring is lovely! I'm actually considering buying one for myself. :) x

  8. Edwina: Thank you! Hehe I'm not very daring at all. Somehow I felt "safer" since it was a maxi skirt, though it was sheer :P

    alison*elle: Oh, it took me forever to find one that I liked and at the right price. Hope you find one soon :)

    I.: Thank you!

    LoveMakesTheGirl: Haha it was very funny indeed. Date auction nights are so much fun. My other friend bagged herself a date with a guy and they're going to have Spanish food together tomorrow. I wonder if something more will blossom hehehe

    yiqin;: Haha, thanks!

    Freddie: Thanks!

    London's-beauty: Thank you! I paid £10 for my date. I guess it was towards the end of the night and people were running out of cash from biddings and also buying drinks.
    Oh, you should check out ASOS then and Urban Outfitters does some nice cross rings, too

    m i s s . t e a: Haha! That was running through my mind when I won. You see, I didn't really expect to win, so I was like, "Oh shit, what if she really wanted a guy to win?" She seemed really cheerful though, so I guess she did it just for charity anyway.
    Thanks for the compliments :)

    Shasie: Oh, do! Crop tops are everywhere this season :D

  12. Dear Joey, Thank you for your message on my page. Very sorry, I havent been round for a long time and I seem to have missed so many of your lovely posts. Im well but just a little tied down with work. This is such a nice see-through skirt....and your first ekilove earrings are very pretty too.

    Very soon I will be doing a Chanel give away. I thought I would give you a heads up before I actually post that entry.

    Hope you are keeping well too.
