Lady in Red


This weekend we had a party for my birthday. Turns out 29 isn’t so bad after all. Plus I’ve finally reached the age where I can make the joke of it being my 29th birthday for the next 5 years.  At 16 you get a driver’s license, 18 you get to vote, 21 you can drink and 29 I get to make a joke about being young. What a milestone.

Bloom saved this pretty dress for me, in my size. It’s been the last one for a few weeks but it stuck around for my birthday. That was nice of her, right?

  2. This dress is GORGEOUS and the colour suits you so well! Love the bright red lipstick and how you paired it with the statement necklace. Sad that it was the last dress in the shop, but you wear it so perfectly.

    Happy (belated) birthday! xo

  23. Happy Birthday, Kendi! I turned 29 on Thursday and I complained that everyone will think I'm lying this year, and that I'm really 35 or something. I hope you had a wonderful weekend celebrating!

    Happy belated birthday!

    P.S. The color of this dress looks gorgeous with your dark hair and fair skin tone.

    P.P.S. I recently turned 29, and initially, I was upset about it. Then, I realized that turning 30 is the perfect excuse to take the trip to Greece that I've been dreaming of. So, I'm going to spend the next year planning, rather than sulking. Embrace it πŸ™‚
