It’s almost the day… you know, that “perfect date” so eloquently described in Miss Congeniality as “not too hot, and not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.” What she forgot to say was that the perfect date of April 25th is also my birthday! Ok, so I highly doubt they would put that in a movie, but every time I hear that saying I immediately get excited… and this year I have two more reasons to be extra excited.
1. It’s my Golden Birthday – the one where your age is also the numbered date.
2. It’s the very first time I will get to celebrate the Australian/New Zealand holiday of Anzac Day while living in Australia! I’ve already been told some of the plans for the Anzac Day celebration, and I am really excited to share those with you in an upcoming post. In the meantime let’s talk about dresses.
I have gotten into the habit each year of buying myself a new dress and a birthday present. Why not? Every girl should treat herself to something special on her birthday if she is able to. I already have an idea of what my present will be this year, but I’ll save that for another post as well.
I had never heard of Ruche before, but boy am I glad that Golden Tote shopper turned me on to them. Ruche has a huge collection of modern tops, dresses, and accessories but all with just a hint of vintage flair. As a Golden Tote and Anthropologie shopper this style of clothing is right up my ally, and a break away from the preppy J.Crew inspired style I typically rock. Another great thing about Ruche… they ship internationally!
Ruche’s collection of gorgeous dresses is just what I am in search of for a birthday dress. I put together my own collection of 25 favorite birthday dress picks. Please note, this is not a sponsored post, I just really like their dresses. All selections below are 100% what I would try on in store.
