Honestly, I’ve been a Lilly girl for years – their colors and shift dresses are basically what my little dreams are made of. Much to my mother’s chagrin (she’s a Vince lady… basically a younger version of Meryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada and a hair nicer… but just a hair), I’m as feminine and preppy as they come. My motto is the more bows the better. While my mom usually asks if something comes in black or gray, I would be a very happy camper with an entire closet of pink and yellow. And maybe some navy and white just to round things out.
Actually what am I talking about? That’s exactly the composition of my closet right now.
In case the title of this post didn’t give it away, today’s my birthday! My 27th birthday, to be exact. So that should explain the unusual Sunday blog post.
In celebration of the big 2-7, I thought I’d share (a) this fabulous embroidered white maxi dress and (b) 27 fun facts about myself. Because today’s all about me. And Easter for some of you. But mostly, it’s about me.
I am constantly on the lookout for a good party dress. And finding one is much more difficult than one might expect. A proper party dress needs to fit properly in the bust without showing too much cleavage (I have a big bust so things can rapidly go from super cute to absolutely-terrifying-oh-my-god-your-boobs-are-about-to-invade-a-foreign-country). I like for mine to be fitted in the waist but loose through the hips.
So Passover is next week. Le what? If you’re anything like my five closest friends from my MBA program, this is your first year going to a Passover dinner and you have no freaking clue what to wear. Or you’re like me and you’re a seasoned pro… but somehow still at a loss for what to wear.
Enter: me and my solution for what to wear to Passover Seder.
And, just because I love food (and I know y’all feel the same way), I’ve linked a few of my favorite Passover recipes – all of which I’ll be making for my Seder with my MBA friends next week.
