My weekend was full of awesome food, great friends, and a good time out in Baltimore to celebrate my birthday. I wish I'd taken my actual camera and gotten higher quality pics, or even just taken more diverse photos on my iPhone because I really liked my dress and wanted to show it to you guys on GJU!
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I had originally planned on wearing a dress from Rent The Runway for my birthday night out. Unfortunately, it came and didn't work out due to a stain. Even though I was disappointed not to be able to wear the dress, the RTR customer service was stellar. I'm being fully refunded and was also given a credit to use for a future rent/purchase. Looking very forward to trying it again sometime soon!
So, since my RTR dress didn't work out, I went to Francesca's - a boutique I absolutely love - and picked up another option! The dress I chose was a pink, light satin-y material. It cinched at the waist and was just above the knee in length. My favorite part of the dress: the shoulder ruffles at the arm cutouts! I thought they were fun :)
I wore black tights and black heels, and finished off the look with a gold watch and a long, gold locket necklace.
Here are some pics from the night:
|My girls! I had a such a blast with these ladies!|
|Me with one of my best friends and sorority sister, Leland!|
Toward the end of the night, I put my hair back in a ponytail. I also, apparently, look a lot more tired haha.
|The arm cutout on the dress went a little low on me, so I wore a neon green bra|
to spice it up. If its gonna show, might as well be a pretty color.
And on that same note.. for your birthday, neon undergarments are a must!

Once people ( who brought real cameras) stat posting pictures to Facebook, I'll upload more to this post.
Hope you had a great weekend!
