What I Wore…. Birthday Edition!!

After last years dress was printed in Essence Magazine, I knew I couldn’t wear my beloved sequins! At least not in a dress form, but ya’ll know me, I figured it all out!

Deciding what to wear for my birthday this year was a hardcore task!

After last years dress was printed in Essence Magazine, I knew I couldn’t wear my beloved sequins!  At least not in a dress form, but ya’ll know me, I figured it all out!

I decided to go with lace this year, as it is one of the sexiest trends right now. My formula is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it so the lovely Ayana of Audacious and Feral made my dress again this year!

My shoes…

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any super clear pictures of me by myself, but everyone thought my shoes were patent leather… they are not! They are my signature sequins (come on ya’ll knew I would)!

My shoes came from ASOS. I told ya’ll I would probably change my mind and end up not wearing the birthday shoes I told you about a few weeks ago! smh!!

My Jewelry…

My Necklace and Ring were courtesy of Foyer (boutique coming soon)

My love bird ring came from Anarchy Street.

Lastly, I wore my beloved Henri Bendel Clutch!!

I brought this clutch while I was in New York back in February, I knew my birthday was the perfect occasion to bring her out for the 1st time! Yes, I said bring “her” out, I treat my bags like people…so what!

Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo  x Polish: China Glaze Ruby Red Slippers

So there you have it…

My look this year was glamorous, kind of like old Hollywood Glamour…

Until my next birthday, what do you think?
