Star Bright

I've worn this dress before, out to dinner with friends pre-pandemic, but I thought it would be perfect to wear for an event I'm attending tonight: the opening of a new restaurant, UP on the Roof in Alpharetta. The event will be outside on the rooftop, so I wanted something that would still sparkle when I have my coat on. It's getting chilly here in Atlanta.

If my hair looks a little different, it's because I didn't straighten it! I've been trying out the new tool I just purchased: the Dyson Air Wrap. Since I can't use a curling iron, it makes curling and styling my hair so easy. My hair is difficult, though; it really doesn't hold the curl long. Oh well! At least it looks like it has more body instead of falling straight as a pin.

Coming Up Roses

This dress is really more suited for cocktail hour than a day at work, but since I work out of an empty office most days, it doesn't really matter much! Why bother dressing up, you might ask? Well, it helps me feel normal and honestly more productive; I'm more myself this way.

I think I bought this dress two years ago and just never wore it. It's a little big on me now! Thank you, Peloton!

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Black Dochas 100 Crystal-Embellished Suede Sandals

Looking at this photo, you can tell I'm super tired. I haven't been sleeping well since the time change, even though we gained an hour. It always takes me a full week to adjust now that I'm older. Can't they do away with Daylight Savings Time already?

Tie Dye For

This playful tie dyed dress from Alice + Olivia could only pair well with a fun and flirty pair of shoes. Tie Dye + Butterflies = Whimsical outfit of the day!

Outfit Details

Dress: Alice + Olivia Delora Tie Dye Long Sleeve Body-Con Dress

Alice + Olivia tends to run small, so I went with a size four -- and I'm so glad I did. The dress is designed to really fit to your curves, but it's at least lined to help smooth out those wobbly bits.

I went whimsical here with the shoes, but you could also go in an entirely different direction and pair the dress with a more masculine pair of boots. I guess that's why I love fashion; because you can take a simple piece of clothing and really make it your own.
