I may not be able to predict the future but I was able to predict in my January thrift haul video that this blue sequin dress would be worn on my birthday.
The sticky sequin situation didn’t end up being much of a problem. Though I did have to wear tights instead of bare legs since the first day of spring brought us chilly weather instead of the sunshine I was expecting. I think wearing those actually helped the dress lay nicer!
This birthday girl crown from Girl Props has quickly become a tradition to wear in our family. I wore it for my birthday last year and lent it to my mom and sister when they celebrated their big days.
Then I played with contrasting by wearing a tough moto jacket to offset the sweetness of the dress and then I wore a red purse to (also) pop against the blue dress. I love some clever details and this outfit had it for me!
A Piece of Cake!
Overall, my birthday went off without a hitch. There was lots of ice cream, pizza, and not a single sequin fell off my dress. I’d call that a good day!
