Multicoloured Birthday Looks

It's like how that song goes: 'It's my party and I'll wear cocktail parasols from Poundland in my hair if I want to'. So on January 17th I turned 22. Despite this, the song '22' by Taylor Swift wasn't sung at me nearly as much as I would like it to have been, but nevertheless, it was a good one. In the evening I was joined by some of my best friends, armed with various bottles of alcohol, hilarious cards and a selection of baked goods (forget sex and drugs, baked goods are the grounding of every good party). We then disappeared off into the night in the direction of Dalston, having lost all hope of sobriety, as well as my friend Dan's trousers, in the process.

Dress - Unif via Depop
Bag - New Look via Asos
Hair Accessories - My own ingenious invention
Shoes - H&M

I got Bradley to snap some photos of my outfit, sorry the lighting is so awful! I picked up this dress on Depop, it's originally from Unif, one of my all time favourite labels. Unif is an American label so I would strongly recommend trawling sites like Ebay and Depop for people selling it secondhand, although try not to take the stuff I like, ok? This dress is perfect for festivals, but seeing as the thought of not being able to properly wash for over three days and sleeping in a tent fills me with all manner of dread, I'll keep it as a party outfit.

The parasols in my hair were a last minute stroke of madness/genius. I was handing them round insisting that everyone had one so as to enhance party cheer, then realised that the colours perfectly complimented the outfit. I secured them with kirby grips and wore them out, so next time you're in the street and you see lots of people with umbrellas in their hair, well, you know where you saw it first. The finishing touch was my mermaid bag that you can see in the clutches post, which rather fittingly seemed to reflect and replicate all the colours in my dress! I love it when a party outfit aesthetic comes together, don't you?

Many thanks to my excellent friends for making my birthday so hilarious, and more genuinely making my life a thrilling roller coaster of Ru Paul marathons, forays into little known areas of youtube, aggressive voguing, lambrini and dinosaur shaped biscuits.
