I knew I wanted to wear something elegant and feminine for my birthday party, but I just wasn’t seeing anything in stores that I liked. I saw one of my favorite bloggers Jennifer Palpallatoc wearing this gorgeous white lace dress, and I knew that was what I wanted to wear to my party. Unfortunately the dress was sold out on Nordstrom, so I scoured the internet determined to find it. I ended up finding two websites which sold the dress, the first was shoptristin.com and the other was nomadboutique.com. The dress was the same price on both websites, but tristin was having a sale so I purchased it through them. They have the dress in so many different colors. I love the burgundy and coral one as well.
I think this dress is great for a baby shower, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, engagement shoot, etc. It is even more gorgeous in person than online. What I love about it so much is that it’s so light and flowy. I was very comfortable the entire day wearing it. I love that the back is completely sheer. The sleeves and bottom are scalloped which adds a nice flare to the dress. The dress is low cut, so I did have it altered so that it would be a bit more covered in the front. I wanted to show off the gorgeous back and I knew wearing a bra would not work. I have tried the backless bras and the sticky ones and none of them have worked for me. What I have found that works are disposable breast petals. I purchased mine from Target. They are inexpensive and they stay on until you are ready to take them off. I think the dress is not only beautiful in person, but in photographs as well.
I wanted a separate outfit for my actual birthday dinner. I found a gorgeous rose pink jumpsuit on Nordstrom and it was on sale! It sold out quick in the pink, but it’s still available in green and yellow. It actually looks like a dress and it’s by the brand socialite. It’s a definite show stopper with dramatic slits from hip to hem. It ties into a bow around the waist and has two spaghetti straps that criss cross in the back and they are adjustable. I wore my breast petals with this outfit as well. The jumpsuit is very long but paired with my favorite nude pumps it was perfect. I was very happy with my outfit choices for my birthday this year. I purchased both outfits in a size small and I will have links for both down below. That you for reading.
