Feliz Cumpleaños


I spent Saturday evening soaking up birthday love from all my family & friends. I did so in a special blue floral number handed down from my lovely Aunt. She recalls wearing it to a number of charity functions in the late 1970's. I can imagine her swanning around with Farrah Fawcett style hair, snacking on cheese and pineapple whilst drinking Harvey Wallbangers. My personal touch came with a vintage gold bow buckle belt (overpriced - to the value of one weeks' rent therefore deserving its very own post later in the week). My £12 thrifted shoes caused an extreme amount of discomfort but the abundance of French Martinis and Moet that were lined up in front of me seemed to dull the pain. Here's a selection of my favourite shots taken by a variety of people I love - the person behind the lens is often what I think makes the picture so special. Happy birthday to me in my pretty frock.

Hey Sweets,
Thanks for the comment on my YSL post.

Oh...before I forget yet again...I absolutely love your graphics on your banner. Did you do that yourself? I'm thinking about changing my banner, possibly doing an original art piece to make it more interesting.

Smooches!
