Pretty Pleats

Happy Monday all! I’m still kinda tired from celebrating my birthday this past weekend. I had an amazing time with my friends who came out to show their love. I can honestly say it was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had.

The dress I wore for my birthday party is from Eloquii. When I first saw this dress back in December I was like “I gotta have it for New Years Eve!” but I didn’t get it because I decided to go with another outfit. About two weeks ago when I was on Eloquii’s site (something I do almost everyday!) I saw the dress was on sale WITH a coupon code!!! This time I didn’t hesitate and I snapped it up. I wasn’t a fan of pleated skirts because I was always told that they would make my lower half look bigger. So I stayed away from them until I got this dress. The pleated skirt complimented my lower half because they were small and accordion like. The the flowy material of the dress didn’t cling to me and the midi length was perfect because I didn’t have pull or tug my dress down. The sequins on the tank portion of the dress would turn different colors when the light hit them. The sequins gave the dress just the right touch of dazzle without overdoing it. I added my favorite Eloquii obi belt and my Nine West sandals to complete the look.

What style of clothing did you use to shy away from but are now embracing? Have a great evening!

    You look so lovely! I bought the same dress, but I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep it yet. You’re convincing me to! I really love it with the strappy sandals, and of course a bright smile and confidence makes any outfit look its best! The biggest change for me was allowing myselg to wear dresses. Now I’m working on skirts ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy late birthday!
