I decided to do a follow up to my last post just in case anyone was wondering about what I wore.
I had made a purchase a few weeks after I gave birth to my baby girl back in January from ASOS.COM, which included a high waited black skirt and the dress I wore for my birthday. The dress is black and white leopard print on the front and plain black on the back. It’s a stretch spandex cotton material with double “Chris Cross” straps on the back.
I did not know when I was going to wear that dress or even where, I simply thought to myself “it looks “hot” and I want it”. When it came down to birthday outfits it was definitely a contender among another ASOS choice, a black jumpsuit and my last option was a leather skirts with a cobalt blue one-sleeve top.
After trying on all of my choices I went with the dress, feeling elated that I was able to get into a medium 8months after having a baby. The next task at hand was the SHOES! I knew I wanted a shoe boots or a sandal boot. Something a bit out of my comfort zone, that would also add the glam my dress was lacking.
I searched everywhere, all websites and stores for this shoe I had imagined in my head. Then I found it when I was least expecting it at Nine West Outlet in Jersey Gardens Mall, Elizabeth, NJ. Do not let the word OUTLET mislead you, I felt I paid regular full price for these shoes but “what the hell it’s my birthday” I thought. I love everything about that shoe and felt it went perfectly with the dress; they were also surprisingly more comfortable than anticipated.
I topped of my look with my version of a smoky eye and a normal blow out from a new salon I tried in South Paterson the day before.
