I am have my 27th birthday in a few weeks and I am trying to find the perfect dress. I am not going to go to the extremes but I am going to have a "vintage old school circus" theme. Its going to be outside, just a bunch of friends having a good time. What color/style dress should I wear? I am 5'2" tall and I wear a 4. It needs to be comfortable and I want to be the center of attention. Hopefully priced around $150. I found this dress. I kind of like it. Thanks so much. Fingers Crossed."
First & foremost, happy 27th birthday in advance from the whole Outblush crew! Secondly, a vintage circus-themed birthday party? ADORABLE idea, missy! We focused on fun, casual-but-party-ready 50's & 60's style dresses in bright colors and patterns that will be super flattering and definitely make you the star of your circus. Have fun!
