First and foremost, I am so sorry for the lack of updates here. I feel like its been forever and a day since the last time I really sat down with an update. However, I have a ton of content to update with for the next few weeks!
On August 18th I turned 24 years old and I spent months thinking about the best way I wanted to celebrate being one year older. I’m not really one to go out clubbing or anything that a lot of my friends have done in the past. I’m a low key kind of girl who just enjoys getting dressed up and enjoying the company of friends. So, I decided on a dress to impress birthday dinner at one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. If anyone is local and enjoys japanese food, I highly suggest checking out Toko. Their food is seriously worth the price and traveling time it takes me to get there. I’d go every week if I could!
A few months ago I purchased a dress from Chicstar that I had been eying since I first discovered the site. Buying this piece didn’t really make sense at the time seeing as I couldn’t possibly think of where I’d wear such a distinct dress but once I settled on birthday plans, I knew the perfect use for my chiffon pencil dress.
I set out to create an old hollywood feel with the dress but unfortunately pincurling my hair didn’t exactly work in my favour. However, I decided to pin my bangs and hair back which really ended up working in my favour. There is so much detail and the top of the dress is really what caught my attention in the first place so I didn’t want to take away from that. I put a pair of heels on and enjoyed the night over delicious food, lots of laughing and a few alcoholic beverages. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday!
