I was at my friend’s Sweet Sixteen last night. I had helped her with her makeup and such while she was getting ready, so I was in the early crowd of arriving at the party. I wore my favorite dress, my leopard print one, with a layered black and clear necklace and black rhinestone heels, and received many compliments.
I strongly believe in attempting to look your best when you go out, but without being fussy once you arrive. Sure, a bathroom run or two to glance in the mirror are okay. But,
if your hair is a little messier than when you arrived, give it a quick touch-up or just let it go! You don’t need to look perfect at a party. You just want to appear as if you are having a good time!
The DJ was ready to go, and the birthday girl loves to dance. She was dancing alone without any inhibition (she even told me that she dances to the music in her head in a grocery store). While I don’t dance in grocery stores, I’m all for getting out on the dance floor at a party.
I don’t take credit for being a good dancer, but I went with moves that wouldn’t make me look like too much of a dork. At first, the two of us were the only ones dancing on the floor. Eventually a few other girls decided to join us, and groups were formed. Half were full-out dancers and the others were half-hearted and a little insecure.
I always say, “Don’t be afraid to look a little dorky! You came here to party so you might as well dance!” I find it extremely important to show up to a party with the right mindset.
I know I wasn’t the prettiest girl on the floor. (I give the credit to the birthday girl!). I certainly wasn’t the best dancer. But you know what? I was one of the few who was ready to have a good time, no questions asked! I really believe that confidence is something that makes you beautiful, even if your hair is a little frizzy from dancing for a long time or your eyeliner isn’t in the same place that it was a few hours ago.
What kind of girl are you at a party? Do you believe that confidence makes a girl appear more beautiful?
