Birthday Outfit - Designed by Me


Woke up feeling extremely blessed! Last night, my friend Tori threw me a surprise birthday dinner at Terilli's with a few of my close friends and got me some of my favorite goodies. My actual birthday is today, so this morning my family surprised me with breakfast in bed! I also had a green tea and lemon cake along with my breakfast. 

I decided to design my outfit for my birthday, so I made this silk dress and diamond choker necklace. I've wanted a silk dress for a while now, but I could never find one that fit properly. Every silk dress I have tried on was not flattering on my body, so I decided to make my own! I really wanted a silky, soft, and dainty look, which I feel I've achieved with this design. I originally made this dress just a few hours before a fashion show that I was attending Saturday, but I decided to wear it to my birthday instead because I thought it'd make my birthday more personal.

To top off the look I wore a diamond choker to give my outfit a little more glam. I really enjoyed making the choker, I love-making jewelry! For my shoes, I wore a strappy open toe sandal that had a clear glass heel, don't worry it wasn't real glass!

I'm having such a great birthday! Thank you for all the happy wishes, I can't wait to see where this lovely day takes me! Thank you Rob Phillips for these awesome shots!


I got a hair cut this weekend, a little more than I asked for, and the shrinkage is so real! Can you tell?
