As I mentioned last week, my birthday was on Wednesday and I got a chance to celebrate with my friends. Just like every other time, we had a blast together! I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to spend my birthday with. As busy professionals, it’s not always easy for us to catch up with each other. That’s what makes events like this all the more fun. One of my best friends even made the trip here from Florida to spend the evening with me which was awesome. Our restaurant of choice was a South African restaurant in Buckhead called 10 Degrees South. The interesting thing about us going to that particular restaurant is that we’ll all be going to South Africa this year for my best friend’s wedding in October! I can NOT wait for that trip! Get ready for tons of fabulous pictures when that time comes.
For my birthday outfit I wanted to go with something abstract. I knew I wanted to wear a dress, but didn’t want it to be conventional. I was looking for something with a bit of edge to it. After countless hours of searching on the internet, I finally decided on the Beaded “Broken Floor” Sweater Dress by Kenzo. Kenzo dresses are typically daring and bold. I am absolutely in LOVE with the funky abstract pattern on this dress! Thanks to the copper bugle beads and a little sequins, it was dressy but not too dressy. Adding my Leather and Mesh Ankle Booties by Schutz Shoes really gave it the edginess I was looking for. It turned out to be perfect for my night out!

I got so many compliments on this dress. It’s definitely become one of my new favorites!
Are there any Kenzo dresses that are your favorite?
Until next time…
