Outfits in order, hair laid, and accessories picked I zoomed down Highway 85 south to Charlotte to join my friends for a high volume party weekend, CIAA. For those who don't know what CIAA is, it stands for Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which is an athletic conference competing in NCAA Division II basketball (mainly historically black colleges and universities). Alumni, students, and people who just want to party travel from all over the country just for this weekend. This was probably the best one to date because of all the awesome parties and the amount of celebrities hosting events. Thursday night, I went to Crave Dessert Bar and had a tiramisu martini and smoked coconut-vanilla flavored hookah before I headed to 5th Element where my girl, Alexis, was hosting. I purchased a ticket a month in advance for the Maz Ent. party at Label, which is where we headed last. Label was turnt up to the maximum and I was so happy to meet up with my bestie Crystal. I wore my black and white zig-zag print ASOS dress with blue suede heels and a red quilted chain press. Focusing on two, bold primary colors complemented the dress well. Big curls and red lips added just enough sexiness. I didn't have any plans for day parties for Friday, so we headed downtown to the Epicentre. We had drinks at Kazba and then joined some other gal pals at BlackFinn Salon for a day party and had dinner. I kept it simple and casual with a polka dot sheer blouse, black leggings, and booties. The color was all in my makeup - Candy Yum Yum lips and teal bottom eye liner. That night was full of disorganization and confusion, but I ended up partying for free. Juicy J was performing as I walked in and it was wall-to-wall packed. My outfit was probably my most favorite to date - it was sophisticated and uber glamorous. I wore a magenta (more like purple) ASOS one shoulder polo neck dress paired with fringe booties and gold accessories. I only partied during the day on Saturday at Caviar Nightlife where Chrisette Michelle performed and Yo Gotti hosted. Chrisette Michelle peformed the chorus to my favorite song, "Aston Martin Music." I was so exhausted after that and retired to my hotel room. I had major plans to go out later that night, but my body disagreed with my brain. My weekend was spent celebrating some fantastic news - relocating back to Charlotte for a new job! Next year is supposed to be the last year in Charlotte before the tournament moves to another city, so I'll go out with a bang the next go round.
