The Birthday




As you know, yesterday was my birthday, which one I'm not telling. And in celebration of the occasion I wore this recently completed dress for the first time. This project has been a long time in the making due to many and various interruptions, but once I started work on it, discovered it to be the rubix cube of dresses. Subsequently it took me about three months to make it! Now that I look it up it appears I started it in May. So I have quite a sense of achievement now I'm actually wearing it.

I had quite a delightful day yesterday, not only for the birthday celebrations, but also spending the afternoon in the company of some very stylish ladies. After meeting Lady Melbourne for tea a little while back, we thought it would be lovely to meet some other fabulous and fashionable Melbourne bloggers. And fabulous they were. It is hard to describe just what a treat it is to see these ladies come to life off the page. So colourful, vivacious and passionate; they made my birthday a day to remember.


Left to right: Porcelain Blonde, Super Kawaii Mama, Lady Melbourne, I'm not Anti Social, Esme and the Laneway. And we were also briefly joined by Aus Style, the gorgeous fashion innovator.


The evening was spent indulging in Greek food and chocolate cake with my family, and of course being spoilt rotten in the present stakes. *eek* I am so privileged to have such an amazing family and all my friends in the blogging world, including you my delightful readers. Now I'm off to plan another evening of festivities which will of course involve more food, friends and having fun dressing up.

Happy BDay. Gorgeous dress! (Oh, and not that I'm trying to get you to spill the beans on your age, but I find it's best to look gorgeous and tell people how old you are and have them say "No way, you look to gorgeous to be XX!" Point is, you're fab whatever the age...
