A Dancing Weekend: Shag on the Mag and APO Spring Formal

I danced away the weekend!

My favorite event of the year took place Friday night under a big white tent on the lower quad at Wake Forest University.

A live band, great food, amazing company and shag dancing were all main components at Shag on the Mag.

Student Union organizes the best event of the year! It is just a big dance party for the whole school.

The Embers, a 10-piece jazz band, filled the tent with classic jazz songs from the Spinners and the Temptations but also modern pop songs with a jazz twist.

We were swinging and twirling so much under the tent we were dripping in sweat by the end of the night.

I wore my beautiful blue ASOS wrap dress with gold accessories. (Similar dress)
I wore my Public Desire orange wrap shoes with a chunky block heel, that I also purchased from ASOS.
I LOVE ASOS for party dresses and shoes, but their shipping has not been up to par recently. I ordered a different dress for this event and it took over a month to get here, when normally it takes only a week. The dress I was sent was the wrong one.
I was annoyed, so I settled on this royal blue one, that I wore to Kappa Delta Formal last year, and it was a big hit anyway.

Hollywood Fashion Tape was my best friend Friday night.
Even with all the twirling and sweating, my low-cut dress did not move.
I felt so comfortable and was so happy that I did not have a dress mishap.

I wore this beautiful new ring from Rocksbox. I am not a ring person, but this one is from Aster is so pretty, I couldn’t resist putting it on my wish-list and then falling in love with it the minute I tried it on.
I had it for less than a day, and I purchased it!

After a long night of dancing, and little sleep, we did it all over again the next night for APO Formal.

Kate and Victoria, my best friends from abroad, invited me and Alex to their formal!

I wore this other fabulous ASOS dress. (Similar dress) It is one of my favorite party dresses I own.
Such a fun dress.

I jazzed it up with some white statement earrings from Baublebar. (Similar earrings)
I also wore my favorite heels from BCBG. (Similar heels) The higher the heels the better!
I’m 5’9” and I LOVE my big heels.
I could care less about being taller than my date!
By the end of the night, I did take them off, because I was dancing too much.

It’s Monday now, and I am still exhausted from all the movin’ and groovin’.

Hope you all had a fun weekend as well!
