BIRTHDAY BRUNCH DRESS
As you can see, my beautiful short sleeve floral midi birthday brunch dress is made of tulle covered by light pink embroidery and pink flowers made of sequins. The exceptional blend of tulle cut in layers and overlapping semi-sheer ruffles will enhance your figure and make you like a chic princess, too.
Well, this dress does make me look like a princess for my birthday, doesn’t it?
Just look at the ruffles, sleeves, and sequins. The puffy sleeves and sequins make this cocktail dress even more glamorous. For sure, it will put you in the spotlight, letting everyone know you are the birthday girl.
By the way, the pink flowers are skilfully scattered across the tulle. And there is no worry any of the sequins will fall off the dress. Well done, Self Portrait! Another thing that I love about sequins on this dress is that they don’t have a sharp edge. Or are made of a material that would crack. I hope you don’t know what I mean. But if you like sequin dresses, you probably do.
Well, unless you only know Self Portrait sequin dresses. By the way, this embroidered tulle dress comes in other shapes too. See the gallery below.
Truth to be told, I was planning to wear with my birthday party dress to make sure the dress stood out. But I completely forgot about that idea and put on the blue Gianvito Rossi pumps (buy here) instead. Well, that happens if you get dressed in a hurry and put on the first thing you see in your wardrobe.
Ps. It’s OK if you are late for your own birthday party. Just make it until the time for the birthday cake.
Wait, don’t get me wrong! I’m not saying that because I wouldn’t like my blue shoes. You know I love my Gianvito Rossi pumps. But you keep seeing me in these shoes every time I’m having a brunch.
Thanks to the high neck, puffy sleeves, embroidery, and sequins, this cocktail dress doesn’t need any accessories. All you need is a little purse for the car keys (in case someone gives you a brand new car for your birthday) and your mobile phone. You know, to reply to all your birthday wishes the moment they come. Trust me, it’s better to do that straight away. It took me a day and a half to answer all the birthday wishes last year just because I didn’t carry my phone all the time.
Anyway, back to the accessories that go with this birthday brunch outfit. As said, you don’t need anything else but a clutch. I wore a black clutch ( – from Bottega Veneta or – under $100) that matched the black ribbon on my birthday dress.
Another accessory that I wore for my birthday brunch party is a pearl hairpin ( and , but is as good as the first one – in my experiences). Indeed, I only wore one more accessory. At least before oppening all the birthday gifts. I got a few if . And I put three of them on straight away.
BIRTHDAY MAKEUP AND BIRTHDAY HAIR
Last but not least, my birthday makeup and birthday hair. Since I had a birthday brunch party at noon, I decided to keep my birthday makeup as minimal as possible. For a party, of course. After all, this was my ** birthday party, and I wanted to look beautiful. But still, I wanted to look young as well!
