    theblondeprep asked: Hey Sydney! I love your blog and your style is perfect. I'm hosting my 16th birthday party next month and I have no idea what to wear... Do you know where I can find a cute dress under $100? I was going to purchase the $46 dress from Nordstrom that you've raved about, but it sold out in pink! xo


    Answer:

    Hi Frannie, Thanks so much, you are too sweet :) Love your blog, too!! 

    How fun!! Ahh the Nordstrom Notch neck skater dress would have been perfect— that’s too bad that it is sold out! Nordstrom juniors is my go-to when looking for a dress under $100. I love this lace option which is currently under $50 for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! You could do a classic black pump or make it fun with a glittered shoe, bright pop of color heel or even accessorize with leopard print!

    I also love ASOS because you can sort by price and size and you can see models walk a runway to see how the dresses fit. I love this pale pink dress, this LBD with a fun back, love this neon pink dress, bow back (can’t resist a good bow), white shift dress

    This jacquard dress from Anthro is fab… so perfect for a bday celebration!

    I never really shop Urban but this dress is adorable— I’m super into backless things and this is tasteful but fun, too! 

    Hope this helps :) And I hope you have the best birthday!! 16 is so exciting!

    I have a new post coming up tomorrow on something I would wear to work. I am usually always casual— we are allowed to wear whatever we want on non-meeting days!

    Thank you! I blow dry and then take a 1.25” curling iron and just curl away! No special technique!

    A wear-to-work outfit will be on the blog tomorrow. My office is super casual so I can pretty much wear whatever I want!
