As we reached the venue, Raees took some time to warm up as I registered ourselves.
...and got us these badges.
You got that right! My boy, model no. 10!
You see, this tea party was more of a dress up party for kids. We were asked to choose anything from the Trudy & Teddy range worth RM300. How cool is that? :) The title that the participants were eyeing for was the 'best dressed kid'. So we were given an hour to mix and match the clothes available at the store accordingly.
It was difficult to choose, alright. There were so many choices! Each has that fine European touch to it. Raees helped...to arrange the hangers.
Raees seemed so calm and happy as I put the clothes on him...
Things were going just fine. Although Raees started exploring all the drawers at the place, he was quite cooperative as the salesperson and I dress him up.
He even did his own little catwalk at the store!
That's when I changed my mind about the grey corduroy vest and got him a navy blue knitted one instead.
The final look: a white cotton shirt with vest and 3/4 jeans, cropped black socks and black-brown shoes. The concept: cool university kid. Really nice! I loved it and totally satisfied with my choices :)
This was before we changed his socks
There were 10 participants. Being model no. 10, you know what that means, we were the last to go. Mer was already standing by at the front to get a nice shot of us. Meanwhile, Raees got restless and wanted to explore the other areas. He refused to stay in line as we wait for our turn to parade. He wasn't happy with the loud speakers either. I was struggling and sweating already.
Just 3 more people ahead of me when I realised...one of Raees' shoes was missing! I searched high and low for it while carrying him with one hand. I was really sweating out then. How could we possibly parade with one missing shoe?? I couldn't find it! I panicked and then asked one of the event committee to help me search for it. I thought, people won't steal ONE shoe right?
And just in time, I saw it nicely placed on the table.
I calmed myself after that but Raees didn't. He got more upset as we walked closer towards the stage. Closer to the speakers.
There was nothing I can do. The show must go on...
We really love the clothes and will definitely go back for more since I have my eye on a few other irresistible pieces ;)
