Convention

Our brother fraternity hosts a year-end convention to celebrate their accomplishments and brothers throughout the semesters. This year marked the 5th annual Xi Alpha Pi Convention. I was invited to attend as Brother Alexios’ date for the night. A few other sisters were also present at the event. ImageMy handsome date Kevin and I. I had a lovely time, with dinner and good company. Kevin and I had picked up Zeke and his date and my sister Cana and we ended up sitting in a private booth at the restaurant together. There was a lot on the schedule for the night. mc The handsome MCs prepping for their night!

I was inspired by our Greek life, and dressed up as a Greek Goddess. IMAG0050b I bought this dress in New Jersey many years ago from Charlotte Russe for $25. It has an elegant deep V cut with roushing up into the thick straps. An empire waist that falls into a pleated skirt in a beautiful shiny turquoise colour gives the dress a total Greek look.

After my sister Rebecca chose that I wear gold shoes (Wal-Mart ~$12), I put on this neck cuff necklace (ebay for $3) to match and it hit me – I’m going Greek!

I ran out to find a gold cuff and a head band in order to complete the look. I ended up finding them at the dollar store for #2 each. I added a cute gold clutch that I stole from my mum’s closet.

These vintage gold earrings are perfect. My uncle had gotten a pair for each my mum and grandmother when he lived in Greece in the late 70s. I tried something new with my hair, a Greek inspired twist crown, with the gold rustic headband to keep it in place. I left some ringlets hanging out and I have to say I’m quite proud of the way the hairstyle turned out. I mean… I did try like 12 times to make it work! Let me know what you think of my hair and the look below.

Till next time Gods and Goddesses xx
