What I Wore 31.08.11 - Birthday Style!

It's my birthday! I am celebrating by wearing my new favourite dress (that you might recognise from my last post), my favourite necklace and by going out and buying some new clothes. Then tonight I'm going out to dinner with some of my favourite people. I already feel spoiled rotten and the day's not even over yet! It's been pretty great so far.

Vintage dress//Pigeonhole necklace//Cotton On cardigan//Black flats

I love this dress! I actually bought it on sale from Sportsgirl's vintage section (very, very heavily discounted, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered... $70 for a vintage dress is a little ridiculous!). It had these huge puffy sleeves that I just couldn't figure out what to do with them. I love sleeved dresses, so I tried just taking out the little stiff bits of fabric that sat underneath the sleeves... but no dice, they were still huge. So I just ripped them off and now the dress is perfect. It makes me feel even more Bettie Page-esque!

I've already been lucky enough to get some presents which I hope I can show off soon! My parents got me this gorgeous vintage dress - with a giraffe pattern! - and a cute bag, and my sister got me some kikki.k goodies.

Anyway I can't wait to see my lovely friends and my lovely lovely boyfriend tonight, so I must head off and find something to wear!
