Liz persisted. She texted and messaged me on Facebook every.single.day. Really, really. A week before November 29th, Liz's persistence paid off as I finally said yes on one condition: that someone had to apply makeup on me because for the love of God, I can only apply foundation, lipstick and eyebrow pencil. Thankfully, Mira Villanueva of Estee Lauder agreed to do makeup for the bloggers. Whew, what a lifesaver.
Now, my problem was the dress. We were required to be in all black, and I didn't want to look like a plain Jane so I scoured Greenhills and found this lovely black A-line (perfect!) dress with a sheer panelled skirt (more on this later). Since Ferretti was sponsoring the shoes, it was great that I was also able to choose the wedge that I wanted. So everything was basically falling into place.
