A Very Glittery Birthday

birthday1 birthday2 birthday3 birthday4 birthday5

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Badgley Mischka at Rent the Runway  /  Blazer: J.Crew  /  Purse: J.Crew
Earrings: The Pearl Monkey  /  Bracelet: J.Crew, old (similar)  /  Ring: Kate Spade New York, old

It’s my birthday! Obviously, I had to wear something gold and glittery in honor of my quarter-century.

I completed my #25Before25 list just under the wire (aka last night) and I am ready. to. celebrate. My friends and I are off to Sissy’s Southern Kitchen and Bar tonight for a night of champagne, fried chicken, and karaoke… because nothing says “party” like champagne, fried chicken, and karaoke. Obviously.

I told everybody to don “dressy casual” attire – which to me obviously means glitter and a blazer and pearls. Aka all of my favorite things. This dress is a Badgley Mischka dress (originally $495) that I snagged from Rent the Runway (it’s available to rent for $30). I rented the size 8 and it’s a little snug in the chest while being a bit too generous in the waist, but I love the gold glittery sequins all over (it almost looks like liquid gold!) and the dress’s adorable sweetheart neckline. Also, it’s surprisingly super comfortable. Perfect dress to wear to rein in the big 2-5!

Here’s to being one year older… and hopefully one year wiser. I hope y’all have a great day!

Any advice for me as I turn a quarter-century?
