My dahling birthday

On the 17th January I turned 20 years old. After spending the day being rather melancholy and wondering just what I'd done with my life so far, I had a wonderful evening with my friends out in London. For this occasion I actually bought a dress especially, something I'm not so familiar with doing as I don't wear a lot of formal stuff.
I'd never ordered anything from Dahlia before, but had always wanted to. I really like that London girl aesthetic they seek to create with their clothes, which is ideal for a non naturalised 'Londoner' like myself. When this dress came into the sale in my size I jumped at the chance of owning it. It was the perfect party dress, covered in sequins, and of course, with the all important collar.

Sorry for my cheesy smile, I was perhaps a little drunk by this point.

For my hair I had my fail safe milkmaid braids.

This was the lovely cheesecake that my wonderful friends Luke (at his cookery blog Chew Kamu), Bradley, Pavneet and Dan made!

  5. That dress is gorgeous. I've seen so many lovely pieces at Dahlia, like a nice pinafore, but have resisted the temptation. I love the milkmaid braids, I've did them once last year but decided they look better with a fringe. And oh my goodness that cake! Happy Birthday! :D

  6. Happy belated birthday! You looked lovely in that dress, hope you had heaps of fun. The cake looks amazing.
