Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I had an extremely enjoyable and exciting birthday. It was much more of a celebration than usual and my family went to so much trouble for me. I'm planning to write a couple of posts about how I celebrated my birthday later in the week but for now I will show you the outfit that I wore for my birthday celebration on Sunday night. I love this outfit because it incorporates almost all of the pieces that I received for my birthday. The dress is a gift from Rydog and I absolutely adore the colour, shape and the velvet material. In my opinion, there should be more pink clothes in the shops and a lot more velvet. Whenever I see a velvet item I am instantly drawn to it. I've loved velvet since I was a small child and I think it will always be my favourite material. The pink shoes are a birthday present from my mother in law. I admired these shoes in David Jones for many weeks prior to my birthday so I can't explain how happy I was to finally own these shoes. I mean, what is there not to love about a pair of pink suede heels? The necklace (which also has matching earings) is a birthday gift from my parents. I will show a close up of them in a later post because it is difficult to see from these pictures. I love the necklace because it is much larger than most of my jewellery so it makes a statement. It is also very shiny and pretty!

My Birthday

It's my birthday...

This is one of my favourite dresses at the moment and I considered it a bargain when I purchased it in a recent sale at Forever New. When I look back on my outfit pictures over the summer, it is very obvious that Forever New has been my favourite store recently. At the moment, most of my outfits incorporate a piece from this shop. It seems to have replaced my Modcloth addiction (since I decided to take a break from online shopping given the high shipping costs). I love this new bag that I received as a gift the other week. I saw it with my mother in law a couple of weeks ago in David Jones and she bought it and said that I could have it! I like it because it reminds me of a bowling ball and I absolutely adore tenpin bowling. Rydog says it reminds him of a poker ball.

Red, white and blue is one of my preferred colour combinations to wear so I enjoyed combining many of my red accessories to form this outfit. I wore this outfit on Saturday. This weekend was one of the most enjoyable I've had for a long time. I went to the Taylor Swift concert, tenpin bowling and shopping and spent lots of time with family. (Just as well I had a good weekend, it was my last weekend of being 22!).

Last Thursday, while at the shops, a little girl and her mother told me that I looked like Snow White. I was wearing this outfit, with a few modifications. I guess it must have been the red lipstick, pale skin and dark hair. I was really surprised at first but the more I think about it, the more I like it. I'll definitely take that one as a compliment. It's made me feel good for the last few days.

I absolutely love coloured jeans at the moment! Whenever I'm at the shops, my eyes are constantly drawn to the vast array of jeans in beautiful shades. I'm building up my jeans collection with the pink jeans I posted here, bright blue jeans that I posted here and my new green jeans and new purple jeans. I rarely used to wear jeans so its surprising to see how quickly my love for coloured jeans has developed. I'm sure all you bloggers will understand when I say that most of my clothes have a story behind them. Well, I received these new jeans last Friday so I decided to wear them out on Friday night. After an enjoyable night out, I fell into a pot hole in the dark and rainy carpark and bruised both my knees on the hard gravel. It was one of the most painful experiences of my life and I ripped my new purple jeans! I was so sad. My mother in law saved me. She is rightfully very proud of the fact that she was able to lift me up while I was injured and lying on the ground. Fortunately, I now have a new pair of purple jeans and my knees are getting better.

I wore this outfit to university yesterday. A couple of weeks ago I would never have worn these colours together but lately I've really enjoyed experimenting more with colour. I like the way these different shades of purple look together. Plus, my sister says that wearing these two colours together is one of the latest trends, along with teal, mustard and dark red, so who am I to disagree with my little sister!? I bought the jacket at a little boutique in Balmain called Johnston and Bell. They have such unique and sweet little pieces and I bought it on sale too. Love the sparkles and its velvet too!
