Every year on my birthday, my husband the cameraman gets me a new dress. I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I did, and it’s best not to ask questions about gifted party dresses. He knows I love a good color and a good print, or at least something kind of weird. It’s fun because he always gives me something kind of impractical, the kind of thing I wouldn’t likely purchase for myself, especially this year.
So here you have the birthday dress, everyone. I like it because it’s fitted, but demure enough to not bare too much cleavage, and the bust has some support built in, so I don’t have to fret over the straps being too thin. The straps are also removable, so if I get sudden amnesia and decide I love wearing strapless dresses, that’s an option too. The print is great because it’s on a white background, which is perfect for summer affairs, and can be made more casual for day as well (you’ll see). The pockets are perfectly placed so as not to create any unnecessary volume. The color of the print is bright, but in neutral enough colors that I didn’t have to go out and buy any shoes to match it. THANK GOD.
