20 mini dresses I am considering rn

Dress, Stine Goya
Shoes, ATP Atelier
Glasses, Gucci

Speaking of all things tiny

I can’t seem to focus on anything else but dresses right now. Is it because June just arrived? Bc I have a bottle of ice cold rosé in my fridge calling my name throughout the apartment? Or simply because vacation season is here? It may be a little bit of everything I think.

Later this summer I am reaching the midpoint of my 20s, the big 2 5. And I have told myself that I deserve something pretty to wear on that day, to celebrate getting this far in one piece. I am gonna celebrate this huge day (OR IS IT A BIRTHDAY WEEK I THINK SO) in Italy which makes the pressure of this dress even greater. My expectations are not high they are in the fucking sky.

So, which kind of dress am I going for? Just like my journey towards finding my prince charming, I probably will kiss a few frogs before I find the one. But one thing I know for sure is that it’s not gonna be a long one. It’s gonna be short. Like crazy almost flashing my ass-short.

Yes, this birthday will be very very graceful. I will hit 25 like a lady.

So, let’s see some candidates for the job as my birthday dress.

And for all of you planning for parties this summer, these are for you too.

Category 1:

“I am a birthday princess and therefore I shall look like one”

But I’ll probably do heels. Or maybe, I actually won’t.

Who doesn’t love a little puff silhouette and frill action Imma right?? Those attributes are usually a home run for me. But as I am aging I like to think that I can widen my horizon a bit, and since so many brands are pushing for the new sexy, who am I to say no right away. So, I am tempted to go for a cupcake, but at the same time, I can’t help to look at all the 90s flirt dresses.

Category 2:

“The new sexy”

But am I though?????? My fingers can’t even spell S E X Y without cringing. But looking at Marta here, I am totally feeling it.

So, which one will it be? I am gonna do the adult thing and postpone this decision until the last minute and then stress out about not having anything to wear.
