here comes another ballroom story

Feeling a little bit inspired today by masks. Pretty girls in masks, to be exact. In all my years of going to dress-up parties and collecting countless costumes (trust me, by now, after a slew of 18ths and 21sts, I pretty much have a costume for every occasion), I have not yet once gone to a masked party. Actually, I lie, there was this one party but I wore a Batman mask as the movie had just come out and it was all very last minute. It was a house party too, so we basically spent the whole night drinking cheap wine (NOT goon, but goon probably would have gone down better lol), eating too much junk food and falling over things. What I really want is to go to a masquerade party. Dressed up to the nines, wearing elaborate masks and sipping on champagne. Glitter, sequins, feathers – YES PLEASE!
