Maybe Valentine’s Day month is to blame, but I’ve been really into red dresses lately…
This past weekend, I celebrated turning 24.Not a big game changer, but if anything, I take any chance to celebrate into some serious consideration.
Go big or go home, am I right? ? Every year, I like to purposely remind my family that February is my birthday month and because it’s also the *shortest* month, I have to celebrate all 28 (or 29) days. LOL. With that in mind, I went for a red sequin dress this year — with balloons, a Times Square backdrop, and a weekend filled with the sweetest birthday wishes and good company. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

The Fit of this V-Neck Dress

I had originally wanted to wear this dress without layers because I love the fit of this V-neck dress, but realistically, not going to happen with the frigid NYC temps here, so I decided to wear a balloon-sleeve crop top, the comfiest tights, and finished the look with a belt.
P.S. this dress is actually more red than burgundy, for those confused about the image on the website.
Braid and Loose Waves
A big thank you to Caravan Style Studio for the hair style — we went for a braid and loose waves.
