Tommorow’s birthday celebrations probably don’t qualify as a bash, but there will be drinks, food, fun and friends. That’s good enough reason to put on a party frock and celebrate one more year of being alive!

Now the only question becomes which dress to I wear as I ring in my new year? I’ve narrowed the choices down to a final three. Feel free to check them out and let me know in the comments which one you think makes the best birthday outfit.

Option One

Dress: Ralph Lauren. Necklace: Forever 21. Shoes: Locale.

This feels to me like the most “adult” of my options. Which may be a fitting choice given that I’m now officially in my late thirties. Besides, I’m a fan of adult movies, books and toys. An adult dress sound like good times to me.


Option 2

Dress: White House Black Market. Belt: Forever 21. Earrings: Thrifted. Shoes: Ambiance

Conversely this feels like the most youthful of the three options. On second thought, “youthful” isn’t the right word. Perhaps sweet is a more accurate description. I love this dress so much (check the pockets!) and I always have fun in these shoes. Also the belt is elastic and stretchy which gives me lots of room for cake.

Option 3

Dress: H&M. Earrings and Bracelets: Forever 21. Shoes: Seychelles.

This final dress is comfy, cute and shows a lot of boob. After all, it is their birthday too!

    Oh my lands, Nadine, you look freakin’ gorgeous in all three. CUT. IT. OUT.

  3. Nat says:

    I am coveting the shoes in option #2 but love #3 dress. (Honestly I’m with Lynn though, you look stunning in all three.)

    Happy Birthday!

    I can’t decide – I like them all!! What’s the venue?

  5. NJ says:

    Number 2!

  6. Emily says:

    All 3 look great, but I am partial to #2. Room for cake is important!

  7. Dawn says:

    I’ve narrowed it down to #1 & #3. I love # 2. You look gorgeous in all three. Some how #2 feels like a summer outing and I start shivering being it’s November. The other two being sleeveless also look more partyish for this time of year though…….crazy!!! SO-O-O-O…….#3! Have a blast!

  8. Jan says:

    #2 – because it’s fun!

    Option 2! Option 2!

    You look great in all three. I’d say first and foremost it’s which ever one you want to wear the most tomorrow. If you still want to wear all of them then I think it depends on what you’re doing.
    Dinner in a nice restaurant? #1, Drinks with friends? #3, Dancing the night away? #2.
    In the pictures you look like you’re enjoying #2 the most.

    Twwwwwwwwwoooooo! 2! 2! Love that one so much.

  12. Bryn says:

    I like #1 dress (that colour is beautiful on you) with #2 shoes. And maybe also a belt.
