LOTD: Graduation Day

For those of you who don't know, I used to teach in a school for classes 11 and 12. So every year I get to say goodbye to one set of students and say hello to another set. It is quite interesting actually. I mean you get to meet different types of students and you end up getting really attached to some students.
The Valedictory Function is one of the biggest functions at school and everyone dresses up for it. I was class teacher of 12 Science and my girls were wearing a black sari for graduation, so I also decided to wear a black sari. This graduation was also really special as it marked 10 years since I graduated from ISC. (yes yes I am that old/ young, however you take it) and more importantly it was like a graduation day for me as well. It was my last event at school. I'm currently on a break from working.

The Sari

A black Bengal Cotton Sari with orange gold border. My parents gifted this for my birthday and the minute I saw it I knew I had to wear it for Valedictory and fortunately even my girls were in black so it was perfect.

The Makeup.

I did my own makeup and I LOVE the way it turned out. The eye makeup did not budge all night. I had to go up on stage and MC for a bit and of course it was a fairly long evening. The only thing I did touch up was the lip gloss and blot off the oil but other than that everything was in place.
