The Birthday Party

Two weeks ago I attended a crazy first birthday party.  Most people wore Lilly Pulitzer, but I didn’t have any so I wore my ridiculous new Charlotte Russe dress.  It’s one of two maxi dresses I purchased from Charlotte Russe this spring.  I did have a bright bangle though.  I’d love to wear this dress with a bold black belt and black shoes.  I didn’t have any with me though.  I think bold, brightly colored shoes would go really well too, like hot pink.

As part of my present to the birthday girl and her parents, I photographed the party and got some really excellent portraits although I do prefer candids.  I got some of those as well.

The cake was from the bakery on Cake Boss and only one lonely cupcake from Crumbs was left.

Charlotte Russe dress, LOFT belt, Sofft shoes, ken + dana design jewelry.

    Wow, you are smoking hot in that dress and I LOVE IT!
    The layers of the dress, the layers of the belt, the layers of the bangles… you stole my heart.

      I didn’t even notice about all the layers I had on hahaha.  Wish it had been intentional?  This dress was an amazing deal, Charlotte Russe was running a $20 dress promotion when I was in there!
