Luckily for me though, a dress I've had my eye on for awhile went on sale around the time I was placing my order. Not only the dress is long enough, but it's well made and comfortable. I wore it all day on my birthday without any problems.
I just made sure to be extra careful when eating, since it's white and I'm a total klutz.
I was loving the other little details of this fun, celebratory outfit, including a birthday cake ring I bought the other day, making the outfit a little quirky and timely. :) And I really took a liking to the lace back, even though I hated it at first. It gives the mostly conservative dress a little bit of edge. (So does my little green septum ring.)
I was also really hoping I would hear Katy Perry's Birthday song on the radio. Hehe.
How do you strike the balance between edgy and sweet in your outfits?
