Saturday I dressed up for my joint birthday party with Rob (pictured below). A great group of friends gathered at the local pub for cheap beer and some dancing on the table. It was amazing. I also got a whole host of incredible and thoughtful gifts that are sure to make an appearance here on the blog as they are used and treasured.
I wore a red velvet '50s dress that I found in a thrift store in San Francisco many years ago, while visiting my sister. It has some magnificently messy stiching on the inside which makes me think it is hand made. I whipped up the bow (in my hair) in the afternoon, just so it would be clear that I was the birthday girl (because the luminously red dress was not enough).
This is me with Raph - photographer (and hair accesorizer) extraordinaire who snapped most of these pics
