Celebrate with me in a burgundy lace cocktail dress….

sometimes you are invited and you have to go big. And sometimes a simple cocktail dress in a pretty color is just as good as a sequin dress would be.
We had been at the 60th birthday party of Florian´s uncle on Saturday and it was a blast. There where about 130 guests and the table scapes where beautiful with lots of candles and roses. The menu was insanely chic and trendy. It was a five course dinner including fish on mashed vegetables, filled noodles, filled beef, salad with rare mushrooms and frozen parfait for desert.
For my look I went with a burgundy midi dress from Asos I got before Christmas. It is under 50 Euro and just beautiful. The color was perfect for a birthday party in winter (Florian´s tie was matching the color of my dress perfectly).
The whole dress was made of a lace fabric and the ruffles on top of the dress where such a highlight. I especially liked the lenght. But now on to the heels. I have found them on Asos before Christmas and they where like 35 Euro. I ordered them in my usual size (37) but they where too small so I sent them back and also ordered a size bigger and by this time they where only about 18 Euro. So sometimes there is a meaning behind to small or big clothing 😉
To round up the look I took this black satin bow clutch with me.
I decided to go with an up-do for my hair cause I also need to start trying out different hairstyles for my weeding look. I am not quite sure now what I want. Although I liked this style I don´t want it for my wedding day. I want something more…. Don´t know what it is now….. We´ll see.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
