I might have said this in a former post, but I do not drink alcohol! Not drinking alcohol, and maintaining a social life sometimes seems counterintuitive, and sometimes it is awesome. For example, I remember almost every moment out: the good, the bad, the boring, & the ugly. I am also able to leave whenever I want. Seeing as I live in ATL, I literally have to drive everywhere, so not having to share a cab with friends, or waiting around for Uber is a plus!
(Featured drink from Noche: Virgin Margarita)
Some of my favorite Halal Drink options / Mocktails when I’m out are: Diet Coke, Virgin Margarita, Virgin Shirley Temple, Virgin Mojito (read the ingredients — if it’s a mix pass — but if they’re putting in fresh mint and lemon in your drink, with cane sugar— definitely don’t pass), Sparkling water w/cranberry juice or Spirit with Grapefruit juice. Although, I almost always get a Diet Coke (hello — I’m counting calories people), it’s always fun to try something different.
I had law school prom (aka: Barrister’s Ball) a few weeks ago, here is a picture of the event! I’m the girl to the left. I bought my dress from ZARA during their Winter Sale. The dress was a size too big, but I took to my local tailor, who did a great job tightening it up. The belt I’m wearing in the middle is from Forever 21. I bought it in the fall of 2010 for $10-$15? I love the belt, it seriously helps jazz up any outfit! You can’t see this, but I’m wearing, NineWest, black peeps toe pumps! Here are some of the outfits the other girls wore! I hope this helps you gauge what to wear to your prom!
