Beer, Birthday Cake & Betsey Johnson
One's birthday is such a self-indulgent occasion. All eyes are on you, free drinks flow, and you can get away with almost anything... all on the grounds that you were born on this day so many years ago. Well, I took that to heart this year by donning a decadent designer dress. Mind you, I stayed true to my thrifty values. Weardrobe Conference sponsor Rue La La gave us a generous credit, and I finally cashed mine in to get this fun, frilly, feminine Betsey Johnson frock. On a freezing cold January night, surrounded by casually dressed company, I felt pretty silly but also special. It was my birthday, and I wore what I damn well pleased! As this picture demonstrates, a fancy dress was not the only thing I indulged in. Sadly, this was the most flattering (read: least incriminating) photo of me from the evening. I have my mouth full and appear to be eating chocolate with my hands... classy! I will spare you shots from the dance floor.
