A few weeks before Sanny was born in 2016, we took a trip down to Carlsbad, California (about an hour and a half south of us) for a weekend getaway. It was over Valentine’s Day and the hotel had a kid club, so we left B and Fos and snuck off for a romantic dinner for two.
I had made myself this bow stamped dress and I wore it out to the restaurant for dinner, and while we were waiting for our table, an older woman stopped me and complimented me on my outfit. She said, “I just love that you’re dressed up! No one dresses up to go out to dinner anymore.”
It was just a quick comment, but it’s stuck with me. It’s true — people don’t dress up. But sometimes it’s so fun to get dressed up, just because.
You know I love a new dress for holidays, and Valentine’s Day is no exception.
Yes, we all love to be casual and comfortable, but dressing up is so fun sometimes, and special holidays are the perfect excuse to put on a sparkly dress and a pair of heels.
The moment I saw this Needle and Thread dress in BHLDN’s occasion collection, I was in love. Every detail is exquisite and incredible, and it’s truly a work of art, and this type of sparkly dress is perfect for a fancy Valentine’s Day date this month!
I rounded up a few other beautiful occasion dresses in the widget above!
That’s a beautiful dress! And I love to dress up, I do it anytime I can. Nowadays most people don’t do it anymore, their lives are too busy and they don’t care about these little things that make every day different.
Yes, so true! Good for you for making everyday a little more special 🙂 xox
this really is the most beautiful dress!!!
wow! This is indeed a beautiful dress!! So are the others that you put in your widget!! Love them all!!!
All beaded dresses have my heart – so intricate and gorgeous!
I LOOVE the dress!!! I mean this with all kindness but the average person either cannot or would not choose to pay $400 for a dress so if you have come across anything this beautiful cheaper it would be awesome if you posted it. 🙂

Yes, I totally understand! In the middle of the post there’s a widget with a bunch of beautiful dresses that have a similar feel and are different price points – some as low as $50. Go check those out – hope you can find one you love! xx

Beautiful dress! I’ve been stalking it online for some time and hoping it drops down from $400 at some point. I tried it on in the store in the other color, and it was lovely. It’s so nice to SEE your gorgeous pictures of the DREss!
Hi!this is super beautiful. But is it less of a pink than shown on the website?
