So, it is your birthday. Holla! You find yourself in that concrete jungle, the Big Apple; New York City. You’re there to celebrate, wanting a not-so quiet girls night out and you’re more than ready to paint the town red. You’ve arranged for a slick, black town car to escort you and your besties down-town to a trending and interior acclaimed Moroccan restaurant where you’ll overindulge in your favorite North African delicacies. Following that decadent dinner, a rooftop bar two blocks south for copious cocktails and glasses of sparkling. The men will be dapper, the chandeliers opulently extravagant and the promise of twinkling stars and gazing up at the night sky set to make this birthday ever so memorable.

So what to wear to your birthday has never been as significant as it has been on this night of nights. You want to make an entrance whilst feeling confident and sexy. And nothing ticks those proverbial boxes more than the colour black. Striking and always flattering this hue is a girls best friend. The LBD is a no brainer. But for that je ne sais quoi opt for some high-waisted tailored pants and a crop. Or a sleeveless blazer or cape. Just don’t forget to add drama with some earrings or flamboyant heels.

Given the topic of what to wear to your birthday, if you hadn’t noted, it is indeed my birthday. I want to send colossal thank you’s and virtual hugs to all those lovely people who took the time to actually read my previous post Meloncholia. I know it was a long one and I probably sounded like a massive Debbie-Downer. I can’t tell you how truly appreciative I am for all your sweet messages and reminders. You guys helped me put things into perspective and boy am I indebted to you. Not just for reading those rambles but for the words of encouragement. Something that was much needed during this time.

I have so much love for you guys right now,
