Let's Celebrate

It's been quite some time since I've updated my blog, but life has been keeping me busy these days.  Having said that, I couldn't go without sharing my birthday look.  For my 34th birthday last Tuesday (10.14.80), I decided to step outside of the box and wear a color that isn't necessarily a favorite of mine . . . . RED.  While it's a striking color, red is very difficult to pull off in my opinion . . . . for most people.  It's a color that commands attention and when worn, must be executed properly.

I'll be completely honest and admit that I wore it more so for my date than for myself.  I wanted to wow him and show off a little, lol.  Red is his favorite color (as is my dad's and my best friend, who happens to be male) - must be a guy thing.  Nevertheless, I scoured the local boutiques and specialty shops for the perfect dress for several weeks before coming across this sexy number.  You'll never guess where it comes from . . . . . . my boutique, Elle VJ (lol).  It was a new arrival that came in just a few days before my birthday and I fell in love with it.  The fabric is soft, yet not flimsy.  It's fitted, but not Spanx tight.  Needless to say, I think my date loved the look and I loved my gift from him even more.  I'll give you a hint . . . . . it came from Kate Spade, my favorite fashion brand ever, gotta love him for that!

The look will be added to the site and available for purchase this week - buy it HERE!
