HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCESS DIVA AWESOME COOL TALL GIRL WHO LOVES STRIPED SWEATERS, KITTEN, DRAKE, AND CHICKEN WINGS .. HAPPPPPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!
So, in case you missed it, it was my birthday! For those of you who don’t know me, and those of you who do, here’s a little fact about me: I LOVE BIRTHDAY DRESSES. I’m always the girl who scours every single store I know and has her birthday dress picked out, purchased, and proudly secured in her room for weeks. This year was a weeeee bit different. For once, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to wear. I went to a couple of stores, and here’s what I came up with:
Option 1: Purple Mullet Dress – Shirred Satin Tube Dress via Arden B – $139
Loved: THE COLOR! I adore bright colors, and this seemed to be the perfect purple dress. Plus, it’s a mullet dress, which I’m currently obsessed with!
Why I Passed: Though I chose a classy venue, I was afraid this dress would be a little too dressy for my occasion. Also, I think this dress is better fit for a cocktail party, even a wedding – not a birthday, where the birthday girl likes to get down.
Option 2: V-Neck Nude and Black Lace Dress from Bebe $129
Loved: The FIT! The way the lace hugged my body seriously made me feel amazing. Lace is uber trendy, and I was looking forward to accessorizing this as well.
Why I passed: I loved this dress so much that I purchased it and now it’s tucked away in my closet. I decided not to wear this because though it looked amazing, and made me feel awesome, I wanted a dress with a little more pizazz. Also, since this is a Bebe dress, the likelihood of 5 other girls wearing my dress at my own birthday was high – a statistic I was not okay with.
Option 3: Gray & Silver Geisha Mermaid Cut Dress aka The Winner!
Where Did I Get It? A random boutique on Melrose in LA, CA is where it lived before it was in my closet for 7 months.
(Backstory: I was shopping with SJ (thank you for the nickname AK) and we found this random boutique where I proceeded to purchase 3 dresses, this being one of them.)
What I accessorized with:
Long silver feather neck chain – Forever 21
Red Steve Madden Pumps – Steve Madden
Interlocking Circles Ring – Tiffanys
Looking back, I am so happy with the choice I made. It was just what I wanted: flirty, unique, sexy, and fun! In short, I loved my dress!!!!!
What do you think? Did I make the right choice?
