Birthday Dress

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Go shortie, it's yo' birthday!

Dress: Topshop / Sneakers: Adidas / Eyewear: Sunnies Studios

Last July 1, I celebrated my XXth birthday (We don't have to get into age details now, do we? Just know that I AM OLD. Period. Haha!). And what does a birthday girl wear on her birthday? A birthday dress of course! This dress is actually a recycled piece which I've already worn in a magazine feature HERE (I didn't bother belaboring myself in looking for a fresh birthday outfit as I simply didn't have the time to do so). What's up with the sneakers paired with a dainty dress, you might ask? Well, I've never been a fan of  dressing up all saccharine and "girly" (except if the occasion requires it - i.e. weddings, formal events, etc.) so I had to add some mannish element somehow...hence the sneakers. Lately, I've been pouring all of my shoe-money on sneakers instead of on heels. Yup, it's safe to say that I've turn into a sneakerhead...which I think is a clear sign of aging (does the phrase "comfort over fashion" ring a bell?). I think I may have to change my blog name to "Death By Sneakers". Uh-oh...

On a side note, I spent my birthday this year the way I've been spending my birthday for the past couple of years: enjoying a simple but satisfying dinner in the company of loved ones. I was never one to celebrate by throwing a party anyway. The added treat though was watching the Argentina vs. Switzerland live match with good friends. Of course, the birthday girl's wish was granted...Argentina won! Woohoo! For those of you who are World Cup fans, let me know which team you're rooting for this upcoming finals. *wink*

To end this post, I'ma leave you with mah birthday pose.


Please pray to the gods that I get to update this blog with a new post again soon. :P
