This past weekend I turned another year older. Even though I have a few more twenty-something years to go, my twenties seem to be flying by. I celebrated my birthday with a three day weekend filled with nothing but fun. Saturday night, my friends and I gathered for dinner and drinks at a rooftop bar. I had the best time and feel so lucky to have such great friends.
I found this dress the day of my party. I was actually shopping for something else when I stumbled upon this textured three layer mini dress. I love how it feels flapper-inspired with gold and velvet flecks and lace. I paired it with flapperesque black velvet and gold midi heels and gold accessories.
Layered dress: Cluny, woven cap toe heels: Marc by Marc Jacobs, bag: vintage Chanel, moonstone ring: Suzanne Felsen, bracelets: vintage (large link), Sheila Fajl (thin bangles), Jessica Elliot (gemstone and rope bangles) and old purchased in Italy (black leather and gold), scepter: homemade gift from friend (we always make each other crazy props on birthdays).
Beauty note: I played up the twenties style look with makeup and nails to match. My nails were red c/o Essie Head Mistress, my eye makeup included gold and shimmery olive tones and my cheeks were given a touch of rouge.
