OOTD: Birthday Dinner

February 3, 2013

Last night I headed out with my family to celebrate my dad and mine’s birthday. His is on the 6th, and mine is on the 8th, so it’s always a joint celebration. I’d love to say the night was all smiles, but sometimes birthdays don’t end up the way you want them to and perhaps I expect too much out of them anyway!

But on to the outfit! I put to use two of my new items featured on my previous post: ASOS Curve Check Top and their oxblood jersey skirt. I swear these skirts are the most comfortable thing ever. The check top is great (even though its a little askew in the picture), but I’m not a fan of the step hem. I think because it fits tightly on me, the step hem doesn’t “lay” like it’s meant to. Also, I’m someone who always has trouble finding shirts that are long enough, and this top is almost too long on me. If you want it to fit loose, buy your normal size. If you want it snug, I’d size down once.



I paired it with black suede heels from Urban Outfitters and a fitted faux-leather jacket from I ran out of time getting ready and had to rush, so no jewelry with this outfit! I was pretty impressed that I managed to eat dinner without getting a spot on my white top. Definitely an accomplishment for me, haha 🙂

    I went out for my birthday as well last night. My bd is the first. I decided instead of wearing some old jeans, I would wear one of my new finds I bought from my favorite consignment store, Worth the Wait in Virginia Beach. It is a black crepy pant suit with full legged pants and the jacket zips all the way up, but the best feature is the zippers in the sleeves! It is a Tesori Woman size 1x. I wore a green soft poly turtle neck I got along with it. It went perfect with the green scarf my friend bought me for my birthday, The green and white stripes went perfect and I put it on right then and there and wore it to dinner. I love your outfit, It looks so cute. I love the colors of red and black together. You always look so good and have a great sense of style and know how to put things together.

    When your birthday arrives in a few days, you can have a do-over. I hope your birthday will be wonderful. And I think you look wonderful in the pictures. You put together combinations I would never think to put together. And then they look wonderful on you and I am emboldened to try something new, some new combination, myself. Thanks for your wonderful blog.
