Birthday Pants, Let’s Make It A Thing

When your birthday falls on a Thursday that means you celebrate all weekend long. Which also means Monday following birthday weekend is rough. For a non-milestone birthday, with last minute plans and most my family not in town it actually turned out to be quite a fun weekend. It all started with fun birthday pants! mark. Gilded Glamour Wide Leg Pants to be exact.

I opted for the gold pants for birthday OOTD because they would work for desk through dinner.  Instead of wearing the typical party dress, why not wear some party pants!?  I see these being equally as chic come holiday season and for when you want to be comfortable but fancy.  They made quite a statement without being too over the top.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received!  Plus, I’ve seen this metallic fabric all over the place this fall as a huge trend.

Desk to Dinner Dress – mark. by Avon Wild For The Night Dress

Desk To Dinner:  mark. Wild For The Night Dress

Desk To Dinner: mark. Wild For The Night Dress

Ugh!  What am I going to wear!  The daily question I ask every day.  Especially on busy days where I have to leave work directly to meet up socially it’s even harder.  Work appropriate is sometimes not exactly what you want to be out and about in socially.  Problem solved:  mark. Wild For The Night Dress ($34).

It’s no secret the power of a LBD.  mark. just released their newest holiday collection including this little black dress, the Wild For The Night dress and it does not disappoint on it’s LBD power.  It’s a tailored cut so it’s going to give you hourglass curves, but it’s thick knit fabric keeps it comfy and not restricting. The edgy stud details give it a built in sweetheart shape that will also flatter with the illusion it creates.

The bronze stud design details are flat so they won’t get caught on anything and create a killer look.  It’s like a built in statement necklace so really all you have to do is throw this dress on and go!

If you loved the mark. Exotic Edge Dress from last year (like I did as seen here and here) then you’re going to love this new Wild For The Night dress.  The dress by itself is perfect, I can’t express how perfect this cut and material are, just take my word.  (word of alicia, get it, get it!?!) But also, it is even more perfect because of it”s versatility.  Not only will it be perfect for pretty much any occasion you have now through January but it’s the perfect desk to dinner dress.

For the desk:  Wear this dress easily with a cardigan.  I went for a longer length open cardi in tan and black from Loft to bring out the bronze coloring in the studs.  Pair it with the Avon The Carlen Bag ($24.99) for a fun and functional work friendly look.

For dinner:  Loose the cardi, and maybe add a leather jacket.  You could keep the tote because the fun metallic gold works both ways!  Plus a metallic bag with metallic heels like the mark. Pumped With Vogue heels ($40) make it even better!
