This past weekend I celebrated my birthday in style. I had a lovely afternoon planned, and the perfect dress to wear to for my celebration. I found a gorgeous Lace Shift Dress at J. Crew and couldn’t pass it up. It was a neon citrus yellow, made from Venetian lace. The silhouette is fitted, with and it has a simple, elegant illusion neckline. The great news is that this lovely dress is now on sale at J. Crew. I accessorized with jelly sandals by Stuart Weitzman, a beautiful Milly, studded bow bracelet, which I received as a gift, and mirrored aviators by Ray Ban.
You just can’t have a bad day in a yellow dress. It is just such a cheerful color. When I’m styled and ready to go, I look in the mirror and the color is bright, brilliant, and beautiful. Everywhere I went that day, I had people smiling at me, complimenting me on the dress. When I bought the dress, several girls said, “It’s so pretty, but where would I wear it?” My answer is everywhere! I don’t save fancy dresses. I believe every day should be a celebration.
During my birthday afternoon, we had lunch at The Standard Grill, which is one of my favorite spots in the city. We sipped champagne, and had drinks at the Pool Bar at the Dream Hotel downtown. The highlight of my afternoon was floating in an inflatable swan raft in the pool. Yellow dress and all, I wasn’t afraid to set sail. We got dinner at Chelsea Market, and Eleni’s birthday cupcakes for dessert. It was a fabulous day, full of fun, fashion, and sweet treats. Life is short, wear sequins and enjoy the party.
