The Best (Birthday) Party Dress!

I recently celebrated my 21st birthday on June 25th. Though the actual day was spent relaxing by the pool with a bubble tea in hand, I wanted to arrange a glamorous shoot to commemorate! And when I saw THIS DRESS I couldn’t pass it up!

I saw this beautiful Aiden by Aiden Mattox dress (available ON SALE new!) at SoHo Fashion Exchange and knew I had to have it. Since SoHo is a consignment shop, occasionally pieces are altered by their previous owner. In this case, this gorg full-length gown had been hemmed, probably for someone much shorter than me, but it made the perfect midi length for me. Of course, the glittery Louboutin Glitter Pigalles also screamed to me at SoHo, and they complimented the gown so perfectly, I couldn’t pass them up. My watch is costume, but this incredible Lucian Piccard would do this outfit justice. So would this one, too, and it’s under $25. šŸ˜‰

Huge thank yous to SoHo Fashion Exchange and Al Louis J Photography for making my birthday vision a reality! And whatever is the opposite of thank you, one of those to these number balloons. They are photogenic but they are a you-know-what to model in the wind. Worth it, though!
