For my 38th birthday weekend, I had my heart set on wearing Stop Staring each evening. This particular dress was on my wish list when I first started my blog, and I finally found it in my size for a discount on eBay. So I decided to make this a birthday gift to myself (along with another purple Stop Staring dress, also on sale on eBay, which you’ll see tomorrow).
Mr. Kitty and I headed out for some dancing, but it turned out to be an off night at the club. We got so drowsy waiting for songs we actually wanted to dance to that we were too tired to dance by the time any were played. We decided to just head home early and get rested up for the two remaining days of birthday festivities.
Mr. Kitty bought me this lovely choker by Alchemy Gothic for my birthday a couple of years ago. We had seen it in a shop down in San Diego and somehow he managed to remember it well enough to find it online months later. It’s my only Alchemy Gothic piece, except an old bat hair clip that I never wear.
I wore my hair in a simple ponytail with two hair flowers: one in black and one in purple (yes, the bottom one is purple, although you can hardly tell). The satin rose purse is from Pyramid Collection, and the gloves are from Greatlookz. I finished the look with a pair of fishnets. These have a larger diamond pattern than normal fishnets.
Do you plan special outfits for your birthday? Any particular designers that you prefer for special occasions?
