dress | earthsong jacket | forever 21 flats | nine west
As you're reading this, I'll probably be out barhopping (or maybe already have, for my abroad, time-zones-ahead readers!) to celebrate my 21st birthday! This here is my birthday outfit, and I made sure to snap these pictures while it was still light out tonight because it's probably going to be the only chance I'll have for a few days. I've got 3 birthday dinners to go to this week! What can I say, folks love a good party, especially when the birthday girl can drink.
I was tooling around downtown last week after picking up some birthday yarn (a girl's gotta treat herself sometime, right?!), and decided to stop into a cute little hippie-ish botique that I've passed a million times and always wanted to go in, but never did. I didn't have anything on my agenda that afternoon so I thought to myself, Heck, why not? Within five minutes of clicking hangers together on the racks, I spotted this beauty of a dress. There was only a large and a small, so I grabbed the large and tried it on. Too big. Put it back and tried on the small. Too tiny.
Do you see the dilemma here??! I could NOT let this dress slip through my hands because I knew it was THE dress of all the birthday dresses. (scroll down to the bottom. you'll see. it was THE birthday dress.) So I marched on up to the counter and as politely as possible demanded to know if there was a medium in this birthday dress I just had to have and if so could I buy it??
Since I'm wearing the right size dress, you can guess what they said. :) Since it was for my 21st birthday, and since it was the most perfect dress ever, they made a special exception to fly it in from San Francisco. Not really. But that's what I like to tell myself.
In other news.... I was pleasantly surprised a little bit ago to notice this on my screen - I put it into my phone's calendar months ago, and completely forgot! Kind of a nice reminder. ;)
I also have really big news!! You are now looking at Jamba Juice's newest shift manager! (also known as an assistant general manager) I am so ecstatic beyond words for my promotion to be official (as of today!). Even sweeter is that I am not only gettting a $1 raise like I expected, but I'm getting a $2 raise! Not gonna lie, I did a little happy dance that involved some jumping around. Maybe just a little bit. Talk about the best birthday present EVER!
It is now 10:30 pm and only a mere 90 minutes remains before the clock chimes at midnight to usher me into my 21st year. Here's to it! xx
