What I Wore: Birthday Date Night

dress | faux fur stole | bag | bracelet

Dress: eShakti (16) | Faux fur stole: SoleSociety (similar) | Coat: Amazon (XXL) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Bracelet: Had forever (similar)

Saturday night we stayed at The National Harbor. While we didn't have chi chi plans for the evening, it was my birthday and I love being chi chi! I wore my eShakti maxi dress (previously seen on the blog in this post) and just like I did for Christmas Eve when I also wore this dress, I jazzed up the neck with this dark green faux fur stole. It was a cold night so I wore my new leopard faux fur coat and slid the stole forward like a scarf. It was… a lot but worth it when I walked into Redstone Grill and the women at the hostess stand all raved and one called me a beautiful butterfly! It was a great reminder to give compliments to strangers, it can really make their day (or night!).

    I love that when you dress up for an occasion, you do it up! You probably looked like someone famous all ready for a night on the town! A maxi dress always makes for a glam look, but I too would have never considered it for a winter event. But, now that you mention all the layers of warmth you can hide underneath, then absolutely, I’d consider it. Looks like you two had a great romantic weekend. Much love to you both.

    The green stole is a knockout with your dress!

    You are a beautiful butterfly, Allie!! What a perfect description!!
    It’s funny, because I don’t see as many maxis in the winter, so the 3 of us just did a series on them. It’s nice to see you wear yours too!!
