All of your sweet birthday wishes sent out so much positive energy into the universe that my b-day turned out amazingly, despite the intense moving preparations and general craziness of my last day in Toronto. The day started with a birthday brunch at a creperia, followed by unavoidable hours of packing and case reading, and ended with dinner and drinks on McCaul St. I love starting new, often challenging to follow traditions like celebrating each one of my birthdays in a new country and in a new dress. I broke with tradition this year with the whole country thing, but my dress was brand-spanking new and shiny, so it sort of counts.

As you might have guessed, these are my birthday pictures and this 80s inspired number is the dress in question. In the spirit of festive indulgence, I accessorized the dress to the fullest, with a wide belt, a statement necklace, large metal bracelets, and a chunky ring. On your birthday anything goes!

I’m now on day one of the longest road-trip of my life (thus far). We are currently driving though Michigan towards Chicago, still thousands of km from California.

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress by “Zero”
  • Leather belt
  • 2 large metal bracelets by “Ben-Amun” (last seen in July 23’10)
  • Nude heels by ‘Elie Tahari” (last seen in Aug. 2’10)
  • Necklace by “Kenneth Jay Lane”
  • Chunky silver flower ring (last seen in July 11’10)
  • Vintage brass bracelet
