So, you may or may not have heard that the DLSS Geelong Law Ball will be September 8th (and if you haven’t, you have now)! The night will include a three course dinner, free beer/wine/spirits, photographers, a photo booth, premium entertainment and a FREE after party!
We will also for the first time have an app you can download to help you out before and after the night, which includes an FAQ page, the list of seating arrangements (once finalised) as well as updates on ticket releases! Download it now so you don’t miss out: lawball2017.shareableapps.com
So, perhaps you’re new to Geelong and don’t know where to find the perfect dress or suit for the night, or are unsure of a hairdresser you can trust to get your hair done – Have no fear, we are here to help you out so you look H.O.T. and have the best night of 2017!
Get your glam on
Personal recommendations for shopping include the following:
If you’re looking to buy something in person in the Geelong area, Westfield would be your starting place. There’s Forever New, Hutch Store, Melrose Ave, Myer, Bardot, Country Road, Seed and more. For the lads, there’s Bossini, Connor, Peter Jackson, and Roger David to name a few. If you’re like, it can sometimes be reassuring to buy something fancy like this in person, rather than online, and there’s even an alterations place downstairs in Westfield if you need any adjustments made!
You could also shop almost any of these stores online too, but a few personal favourites that operate online only include Missguided, ASOS, Boohoo, and The Iconic. Don’t forget, lots of these retails offer student discounts through sites such as Unidays, so it’s always worth to search around before making your purchase! If you use Google Chrome as your browser of choice, there’s also an extension called ‘Honey‘ which will alert you to discount codes that the site might be offering at the time! Get on it!
This one is mainly for the ladies – It can be hard to commit to paying to get your hair and make up done if you don’t have the first clue about who to trust, or where to start looking!
If you’re looking to get your make up done, there’s a few places in Geelong where you can book in, and the money you pay to get your look can be claimed on product on the same day! For example, Mecca (thank goodness they’re open now!) offer this service and is best to book in advance! Some of the concession stands inside Myer like MAC and Benefit offer makeovers too, as does Blush Bar.
Hair can be hard, especially if you don’t know who to trust with your precious locks. I personally go to my wonderful pal at Tortoise & Hair Co (but I’ve booked her for the night, so HA!) but the other ladies at her salon in Belmont are all FANTASTIC! The girls at Hidden Minx in Geelong West do some wonderful work, as do Salon Eve in Manifold Heights and Darren Grayson’s in Newtown! We can also personally recommend the fine gals at Rixons in Newtown for a killer up-do.
On the night
We want to make sure you have the funnest, and safest night possible at Law Ball 2017! For this reason, we will have the buddy system in place to make sure that no one is left wandering alone back to their car/ride at the end of the night. We will make it known on the night who our designated ‘buddies’ are from the committee, just come grab us (even if we’re breaking it down on the d-floor), and we will make sure you get to the car safe!
The DLSS Geelong also encourages the safe consumption of alcohol – we don’t want to be Debbie Downers but NO ONE (believe me) likes the feeling of waking up the next day and remembering that terrible selfie they shared drunkenly on Facebook, or that ex they texted out of desperation. Play it cool, have some fun, but don’t put yourself in danger of forgetting about the whole epic night you had because of too many moscatos!
SO WHO IS READY?! We sure are.
