Birthday Sequins

birthday7

I found an $18 long sequin dress at Forever21 the day before my birthday (updated now in my budget post here), so I couldn’t resist buying it after trying it on and falling in love. I was hoping to find a pink dress, but hey, when you find a good deal (covered in sequins), how can you say no? Paired with some crazy earrings and glitter shoes, I was all ready to celebrate!

      I know right?!?! I was actually looking for a hot pink number and then when I saw this for $18 I immediately ran to the dressing room, fit perfectly and was comfortable at the same time, so end of the search! :)
