Month of Celebrations

This month has been crazy. A lot of my friends and family members have birthdays or I am invited to similar celebrations and I rarely have a moment to catch my breath. Still, it is a lot of fun to see all your loved ones fairly often, so I won't complain!

Last weekend my friend C. celebrated her 30th birthday and invited several of her close girlfriends for a luncheon at a wonderful restaurant in our town. 



The weather was really nice, cold but sunny and we enjoyed a great view and amazing food! Especially that Blueberry and Panna Cotta Cake was so delicious!


I used the opportunity to show off one of my newest thrift finds - this wonderful 50s inspired black dress that fits like a glove. It was a great choice for a day with 10 lovely ladies. I paired it with broque heels and my college cardigan and added some red accessories. 


What I wore

Dress & Bag: Thrifted
Cardigan: Gina Tricot
Tights: Esda
Shoes: Deichmann
Headband: H&M
Scarf: gift
Necklace: gift

My friend C. loves photo shoots and we had a lot of fun taking several group pictures. During that period these great shots were taken :)

you look so dainty and cute.  I feel like everyone I know was born in January! So many birthday parties, so little time.

I love that candle picture; it's such nice lighting in a restaurant.  I also really like that your brogues are blackish with a brown heel.  I am a little obsessed lately and have managed to purchase three pairs before find the "perfect" ones.  Congrats on scoring that dress.  I am not supposed to be shopping this month but I keep seeing all of these great thrifted finds online.  So tempting

thx so much! Vintage is always so nice, but it is tricky to find something that fits so well, little alterations are often needed.

Oh yes, it is really tricky with finding nice things when you are on a shopping ban. I am currently fasting, candies and all those bad things, but also shopping. Well, let's see how that goes!!
