This is what I wore on the morning of my birthday - the photographs were taken in my new kitchen, by my lovely housemate!

what i wore on my 23d birthday

I'm wearing:
• 'cue' lightweight wool cardigan, ebay
• 1950's flocked taffeta turquoise dress, ebay.
• 1980's charles david black boots, ebay.

Thank you for my birthday wishes, sweeties, it was lovely of you!


showgirl outfit, circa 1950'sshowgirl outfit: detail

And this ... THIS is a ridiculously silly photograph of the BEST PRESENT EVER -- a 1950's rhinestone encrusted showgirl outfit with feathers and sequins. I WANT TO LIVE IN IT. SERIOUSLY.

That is why i have the most mental facial expression in the known universe. I was JUST SO HAPPY.

Especially because these vegan and vegan/gluten free beauties were my birthday cakes:

my birthday cakes!

In case you can't tell, I had a fabulous day ... 23 is going to be awesome, I can feel it in ma bones, yo.
