It was my birthday :-)
I received the most luscious bouquet of hot pink and light pink roses :-)
My family and friends really went all out to make sure it was a special day...sending flowers, gifts from afar, cards, and bringing pink champagne and presents. They really indulged me, and are ever-so-good to me. Thank you, dears, for making my day so special :-)
My brother calls this my Neopolitan Ice Cream skirt. I call it my Birthday Tutu! I've worn it for my birthday before (see this old-as-the-hills post). It's just so perfectly pinkly party-y! I wore it with my grandmother's crinoline underneath. Can you believe she used to wear it under her poodle skirts in the 50s?! I love it so much it's not even funny.
The feather headpiece was a birthday gift a few years ago from one of my very best friends. I love it so much and have worn it on many birthdays because it is just so birthday-y! I wore some vintage costume jewelry earrings, and my polka-dot tights too.
A birthday only comes once a year, so it definitely requires some party clothes! Don't you agree?
