As you all know Tuesday was my 22nd birthday! It was a fabulous day! What I want to share with you, however, is my amazing outfit I wore for my 21st birthday. I turned 21 on the 21st….which means, it was my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY! I threw an extravagant party, but the morning of my birthday I still had no outfit ideas. Can you believe it! I obviously jet-setted to a recently opened TJ Maxx in Newton and began to scour the racks of dresses.
I was so overwhelmed, having little time to find a memorable dress when I was about to call it a day and whip something up from my own closet, when I saw a little piece of turquoise, metallic fabric peaking out through the sea of winter colored dresses. It was a wild dress! Just my style! A one shoulder, metallic turquoise and green dress with a huge bow on the shoulder, made by Phoebe Couture (a designer I had never heard of). It didn’t have a price tag, but I tried it on anyway and it was a tiiiiny bit too tight. I looked to see if their were any more, but there weren’t. This was an original! So obviously I had to have it. When I brought it up to the register, I had no idea a birthday miracle was about to take place!
My tailor, being the sweetest gem, was able to adjust my dress comfortably and had it ready in time for the big party.
Here am I modeling my party dress with my lovely friend Lindsay.
I paired my dress with gold, sparkly earnings, courtesy of nana, and these gold gems from Marshalls. Keep checking back for later posts, to find out who makes these unbelievable heels.
Taylor Swift wore this metallic blue and gold, Rebecca Taylor party dress to be interviewed on The View!
