Pink Me

This past June, my sister turned 21. And with every birthday comes a fabulous party, especially when you can legally drink in the United States!  My mom and I found a lot of potential dresses for her big bash;however, I fell in love with this pink sequined dress from Aqua and kept it when my sister didn't want it. It's not extremely fitted, but it's so Elle Woods. And doesn't everyone need an Elle Woods dress? Ever since I got it, I kept thinking "must blog." By the way, "must blog" was supposed to sound like a defective robot. So here we are, I'm writing a blog about this dress and you're reading it!
How awesome is that detail?
The thing that I love about this dress is it's beyond fabulous back and how it fits on the body. I wanted to show you beauties the beauty of this dress. Alas, that meant a mini photo shoot. My sister took some fabulous pictures that I want to share with all of you.
What I love about this back is that it's low enough to make a statement ;however, high enough to wear a strapless bra.  Since this dress epitomizes girly, I paired it with a pair of chunky black Calvin Klein heels to give it some swag.

This is one of those dresses that would look too over the top with a plethora of bracelets and necklaces. Going bare, however, would just be wrong. So what to do? I styled this look with black rhinestone earrings, to complement the black shoes as well as the sparkly dress. And that's it, you're done with the styling! Add a simple black clutch and you're ready to go out on the town! 

The strong lines on the shoe counteract the glitzy dress! What I love about this dress is it's comfort and fit. I always feel like a beached whale whenever I wear most sequined dresses: the sequins make the dress stiff, thus less form fitting. This dress, however, is different. I believe the sequin were sewn into the fabric, which gives the dress more shape. You go, Aqua!

And then the photoshoot went a little too far...
Too far too far!  In conclusion, a sequined dress is such a DO. I really don't think there's any way to dress down a sequined dress but let me know if you think of something.
As my mom would allegedly say, CIAO.
