Gold Baroque

I cannot believe it! The past few days seem like a huge blur and even a dream to me, but a lot has happened. Well mainly, graduation has happened!! (which I will write about in a later post!) It all went by so fast and it was quite the experience. Right after graduation, our school had planned for us an all night grad party which was crazy! I literally pulled my first ever all nighter that night! I also played my first game of paintball that night and I'm glad I tried it, but let's say it will be a long time before I do that again!
I'm still recovering right now since I have not really made up for that night of lost sleep lol. I feel okay, but my mind is a little out of it and my body hurts! hehe. I got back around 6-7 am that day and slept for 3 ish hours before heading out again. My sleep cycle is slightly messed up right now so I'm working on getting it back to normal! (which explains my 2 hour nap in the middle of the day today!)

Sequined Baroque Bodycon Dress

Sequined Baroque Bodycon Dress

For my outfit today, I am wearing something a bit fancier. I was on the hunt for a graduation dress and I actually got two-three dresses that could potentially make for my dress. After looking around online, I found out that I really love the baroque design so I went to look for a dress that had it. I originally really wanted a gold baroque, but I could only find this one. Later on, I saw on forever 21, two dresses that I loved. One was your typical white graduation dress with roses while the other was a black and white baroque styled dress. I got those two and the dress that I eventually ended up wearing to graudation with was the baroque dress from forever 21. That's not to say though that the other dresses aren't pretty! I love them all! 

Sequined Baroque Bodycon Dress

This dress from dailylook is quite unique! On the site, it is called the sequined baroque bodycon dress. I don't know why I didn't tie the name in with the dress, but I actually expected the dress to be a cloth type material. When I got it and opened it, I realized that the dress was actually covered with sequins. It was actually a pretty cool discovery. I was first worried about how tight the sequins were glues on, but they are on pretty tight! That's not to say that some didn't fall off when I wore it, but it was only a few. This dress will definitely survive many wears! As far as comfort goes, it is not at all itchy on my body, but I have to be careful not to rub my arms against my body to aggressively.
The dress is a bit of a bodycon dress, though the bottom is a bit of a looser fit. That just makes it easier for me to walk in hehe. The back of the dress is the same as the front with the addition of a slit from the top of my neck to my waist. I love the way the back looks personally!

For accessories, I chose to wear a pair of earring similar to the ones that I wore to prom. The dainty earrings are gold colored as well and are quite long. There are crystals at the end and a little heart charm. For my bracelets, I am wearing a set from forever 21. These are literally my favorite set of bangles! My shoes are a pair of tan heels.

Baroque Outfit of the Day

Ohh man, the all night grad party was so much fun, (absolutely no regrets with going!) but if there is one thing I learned from it, it's to not pull an all nighter ever again! (hopefully!) It's day 2 after my all nighter and I still feel so out of it... I have a headache and I'm just sore all over for no reason! Whoo.. lots of naps for the next week. My body isn't meant to not sleep!

    1. Thank you Cassie! I am super excited and scared to have graduated.
      ohh .. I feel like I want to go to real life, but at the same time I want to enjoy college because it only happens once. Real life really scares me actually.
      Thank you! I actually got another baroque dress and I like it even more than this one! =)

  2. I do like your dress, though I am not much a fan of sequins. Also love the shoes, they look so perfect and dare I say it... grown up!!!
    Baroque, do you mean the style in Architecture and Art? I am still a bit confused about that part.

    Oh, I pull an all-nighter almost every 5 to 7 days because of work. Which isn't that bad, since my Circadian Rhythm is messed up by birth. :(

    1. Thank you and I kinda feel the same about sequins though they work for this dress!
      hheh thank you! I am feeling a tiny bit older after graduating! hmm.. the dress had the work baroque in it.. actually I just googled it and I think baroque is referring to the architecture and how the pattern of the buildings kinda look like the patterns of the dress =) \

      ohh gosh that sounds bad! You need to get some sleep! =)

  6. When I spotted the word gold baroque, I thought you were referring to your hair colour! Well, it certainly matches your new dress & you look so elegant in it!

  7. Congratulations on graduating Mindy! I associate baroque with being stuffy but there's nothing stuffy about your dress. It's quite fun.

  16. Mindy! You look absolutely stunning in that dress--what a gorgeous piece! Wow, so much has happened these past few weeks, girl. I always forget that schools in the Northeast get out much later. Your prom photos were fabulous--that shade of red is beautiful on you and I love the unique shape of the dress. As for your sad feeling about the past in that post, I totally understand. Distance and time can make old bonds very awkward and disappointing to revisit. I felt like Senior Tea (when we went back to visit our elementary school) was filled with empty pleasantries and plain awkwardness--old friends grew apart and we've changed so much since seing our old favorite teachers. But it's all just part of life and the ones who are true will stay with you regardless.

    I love how we're both the same grade because I can reosnate so easily with you--I had the same problem about macs vs. windows. I think I'll end up getting a windows because that's what I'm used to and I've heard that macs don't play well with others. I really just can't justify the cost, especially since my school is allowing my $700 of my national merit scholarship money to cover a laptop, fan, and/or printer. Might as well get all three if I can haha!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your job, but I think you made the right choice for you. It's our last carefree summer and the first one without homework in years! Live it up girl! Best of luck getting your license--it's definitely an adventure haha.

    Hope you get the time to catch up on sleep! Have a beautiful week, girl!

    1. Lily!! Thank you!! I always love your comments since we are in such a similar situation/place with our lives hehe and I like to hear what you are doing!
      Yes the northeast really does.. I feel like it's actually just the state that I am in because another state next to mine got out weeks before me! Thank you Thank you!! I love the shape of the dress too! It is very unique and I liked how it flattered me hehe.

      ohh wow, senior tea sounds like such an interesting event!! It must have been a really weird feeling to go back in time like that. I feel like I wouldn't be able to do it just because it;s almost kinda sad. It's so scary how fast it's going and I feel like college will go even faster for us!

      Your right about macs and other computers!! I know that apple products work well with each other, but with other devices, they aren't the best. I know that windows can work well with most brands and the price is pushing me to get it as well. Yes, get all 3!! A printer is pretty important for your room since school printing can get costly!

      I am really excited for the summer! I'm going to be jobless, but I definatelyy won't be lying at home! I'm making the most of my time with a vaation and practice with the car so I can get my license as soon as possible! My sleep is pretty much back to normal!! It took a few days, but my body can now sleep at the correct time haha!

I hope you'll get to rest once all the excitement are over =D Congratulations again!

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xx

  19. Woow, the dress looks fantabulous on you, Mindy! :) I love the Baroque design and the shimmering golden sequins- lovely! Unfortunately, our school didn't arrange any all-night grad parties for us; however, there were some groups of people who held aftergrad parties. And since all our graduation parties and events and exams are over, I don't have any upcoming parties to look forward to yet! I've never actually managed to pull an all-nighter.. the latest was in bed by 3 in the morning, haha! Boy, it gets terrible after not getting those extra hours of sleep! Remember to sleep more and get plenty of water to recover! :) X
