My 22nd birthday was this past Sunday and I decided to pull out all the stops so that I could look and feel my best on my special day. I went for a completely glam and sophisticated look and needless to say I had a lot of fun dressing up!
My boyfriend bought me these lovely shoes as a Valentine's Day gift this past year and I love how they compliment this dress. The hints of gold in the lace-like detailing are so unique while the conservative nature of the shoe balances out the dress's sexiness.
I raided my mom's (many) jewelry boxes to find the best pieces to fit my mood and to match my ultra-chic dress. I settled on this gorgeous Roberto Coin necklace - completely one-of-a-kind and one of my mom's most prized pieces. The rubber "chain" makes the classic gold & silver diamond pendant totally edgy.
This geometric watch is the epitome of class. The black strap is so mod and polished and the little diamonds in place of numbers add such a dainty sparkle.
This blue tanzanite stud serves as a beautiful pop of unexpected color.
A black leather clutch is a wonderful forever-piece that every woman should own. The red nails and loads of rings make it extra fun!
My favorite part of this dress is the asymmetrical hemline, it's most definitely a cut above.
