Description

tired of hearing about my birthday yet? I KNOW!!!! i just love it SO MUCH!!!

here’s the ensemble i wore on my Actual Birthday: a shortened me-made linen skirt, and a bustier top made from gertie’s bombshell course. although i’m currently loving the separates action, i’m readying this to become a dress…

as always, more pics and (possibly drunken) ramblings on it here: oonaballoona: gossip girls

    Oh, my! I already loved the skirt fabric, but the bodice I’m going crazy for. Is that from Chic?

    Love this combo – they clash perfectly – I would always wear this ensemble together so I say…why not turn it into a dress!

    darn, summer is the perfect season for a birthday!!!!… the blatant envy of a winter’s child :) Imagine the palette of my birthday outfit (I never feel like celebrating in January), brown murky leaf, melted snow dirt hue, frozen cranberry to add an ounce of gaiety yep…I could go on and on…on and on…. feeling sorry for myself in order to dampen the mood and blinding cheerfulness of………………..YOUR BIRTHDAY+6 Outfitttt!!!!! HApppppy Birthday!!!!!

      oh carotte! you must go for the silver sparkle of icicles and the glittery sequins of the sun hitting the snow this year! with a little frozen cranberry, to be sure.
