Earlier this week, this fashioniSTA celebrated a very stylish birthday (not to mention a double birthday for my fashionable twin sister as well). Friends and family gathered on a waterfront restaurant roof deck overlooking Boston’s harbor where the sun was shining and the sangria was absolutely delicious. To dress for the occasion I wore a white form-fitting Nicole Miller number, while my sister opted for a flowy feminine look in soft pink silk chiffon. FashioniSTA friends arrived in sundresses and full skirts covered in florals, lace, and summer stripes. It was quite the party.
On your birthday it’s your time to shine, and at your party you are already the center of attention so make sure you dress the part. Don’t be afraid to wear a bold color or to steal the show in sequins. Play up your personality and show off your own unique personal style. Here are some fabulous looks for a fashioniSTA birthday party:
LWD: The little white dress is easily summer’s version of the LBD. It’s classic, elegant, and chic, and is the perfect dress for any special occasion- especially on your special day. The little white dress allows you to accessorize in a way that really shows off your personality, like adding some personalized Alex and Ani bangles or a statement necklace. There are many options of silhouettes, fabrics and details, so chose something that flatters your figure and that you feel comfortable in.
FashioniSTA picks: Susana Monaco, Alice + Olivia, Nicholas.
Be Bold: Another option is to wear a bright color which really puts you as the center of attention on your birthday. Neon has been a huge trend this spring and summer, so if you’re feeling daring, don a dress if the super bright shades. If trends aren’t your thing, try a dress in a summery shade of coral or yellow. Wearing a bold color exudes confidence and shows a fun, playful personality.
FashioniSTA picks: BCBGMAXAZRIA, Herve Leger.
Sparkle and Shine: At STA we love anything that sparkles. If you really want to shine on your birthday, wear sequins. A little sparkle will never go out of style.
FashioniSTA picks: Parker, MICHAEL Michael Kors.
Every once in a while we all need that one night where we can dress up, have a few cocktails, gush about men, discuss the newest additions to our shoe collections, and dance the night away with the girls. This fashioniSTA is getting ready for an evening with the ladies and put together a few different looks for a night out on the town. We paired the high end with the budget-friendly, and mixed in a few treasures from STA, to give us looks that will have us looking chic for any girls’ night out.
Unless you plan on attending a black tie dinner party, chances are the attire for girls night will be much more casual. Skinny jeans, pumps, and a sassy top is the perfect outfit to take you from day to night- just add a cardigan at the office and you’re good to go!

Fun and Flirty
We’ve all seen every episode of Sex and the City, (maybe more than once or twice), and for a night out at the bar or lounge, think “Carrie Bradshaw” and go for that feminine, flirty frock. Keep the look grounded with a pair of edgy heels and a oversized clutch.

A night out dancing is the best time to show off your favorite stand out pieces. Try an LBD with on-trend details, like mesh cut-outs, peplum, or a sexy body-con silhouette. Throw on a statement heel and sharp blazer to top off your look.
