Hello 30

My thirtieth birthday fell in the middle of a hot summer and I celebrated it with a dress that I made
for only such an occasion. This dress was inspired by something I saw Dita von Teese wear and I just had to make a knock-off.

Although I've been kind of gothic lately and wearing a lot of black, this birthday was very colorful. From the dress to the drinks to the Thai food. A perfect late summer birthday. 

I was able to pair the dress with some of my favorite colorful and contrasting accessories. 

This look really highlights my favorite things about myself. What a way to bring in the thirties.
