AJ Wears :: A Patterned Dress

Patterns are tricky beasts, man. I have no idea why someone would make a dress where the pattern seemed to expand from the middle out, making any wearer automatically look more pregnant, but here we are.

I originally intended to wear this dress to a fashion event tonight, but when my friends bailed I decided there's no such thing as "too fancy for work." When someone asks you what you're all dressed up for, the most appropriate answer is always, "LIFE."

Bonus fun fact: The waist of this dress is actually sheer, but since my boobs ate it, it's totes works appropes! #bloggerhacks 

AJ Wears :: Rent the Runway

First things first, Happy Birthday to me. We're celebrating the first anniversary of my 30th birthday. While most people choose to celebrate their 29th birthday forever, I've discovered the 30's are just like your 20's except with more money and better parties. The thirties are alright with me.

In other news, this dress was another Rent the Runway victory. It fit like a glove; no Spanx necessary. One of the perks of being a Pro Member is a free $50 rental on your birthday, so every year I always enjoy choosing something to wear for my birthday dinner (which was sushi this year).

And if you ever wondered what girls look like when they're trying to perfect the selfie...here you go. It was cute, I swear, although I'm pretty sure it just disappeared from Snapchat (follow my antics @ ajs.snaps).
