Streaks of Color

Dress with Belt: Forever 21+
Shoes: Parisian Plus
Accessories: Bazaar


When I saw this dress on the rack in Forever 21 Megamall (only one of two left!) and it was in my size, I quickly snatched it up and tried it on. The stretchy fabric clung to the right places, the belt accentuated my waist, the scoop neck was just at the perfect depth and I fell in love right there and then. 

Love at first fit. Sigh.


I wore this to a debut of a family friend. I didn't have a grand coming-out party like she did with over a hundred and fifty guests and a live band. My parents just invited my closest friends and we had a fancy hotel dinner to celebrate my 18th birthday. I didn't even dress up because I literally didn't have a dress. Do you still remember your 18th birthday and how you celebrated it?


Hugs,
BelatedBloomer

    1. Too much work before and after the party, I'm sure. With 40 people, there must be a lot of garbage to throw out too. :)

      I'm looking to get a new camera, so I'll check out the prices when I go to the mall and see which one my pocket can afford. Haha! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. oh yes and i did a lot of research and found the best lens are 35 mm, 50 mm, and 85 mm. the prices range from $140, $550, $1200 and so i settled on the 50 mm. it makes a HUGE difference!
