birthday blues


No no, I don't really have the blues, I am just wearing blue and it is my birthday. I have nothing to whine about I am having a "birthday week" and extending the celebration to 7 days. I've already done many fun things and more are planned, but right now I'd really love a birthday milkshake, though outside there is about 6 feet of snow, or something like that. My birthday is during the worst month ever, I wish I could just change it and make it in September or October when there isn't a 75% chance of a blizzard.

I got this 1940s wool dress and had no idea if it was for the shop or for me. 
But it's fate is now clear, it's for me.

I KNOW what you mean about having a winter bday (mine's in November).
Cheers to growing older gracefully, though. And I love these "maybe an outfit" collages, keep posting 'em!

Aw Happy Birthday! February's not all that bad. At least you don't have it in a month where you can hardly go outside because of your allergies. Like me. :/ April.

Happy birthday! Mine is actually in September, the 10th, but during school years I didn't like it at all, cause in Italy summer holidays end just about that week...!
