So, tomorrow is the big day and by big day, I of course mean a day that is only important to me and a few close others who pretend it is important to them. Ah! The pleasure of a birthday. Also, I am turning 26, which means I am still young enough to do youngish stuff (be financially irresponsible, wear frilly dresses), yet old enough to be taken seriously (I can't think of any examples right now).
Of course I'll do a post on what I received and after the big Birthday/ Jesus Resurrection celebration on Sunday (note who comes first...), I already tucked a few things away. My mom got me a dress way back when, along with this rose ring by Vera Meat I posted about a while back:That's still not my hand, but it actually looks remarkably similar to the pictures I tried to take, except here the ring is actually in focus. Go figure.
The fam gives money, which I'll never turn down, and with that money I bought:
Benefit lipstick in Ruby Vibes (aka best lipstick ever), $17 at Sephora, as well as some powder, but I can't remember the brand and am far too lazy to go check right now...

This dress from seller jjbean on ebay
(Awkwardly posed picture that the BF took; "artsy" self-portrait)
This dress from Century 21 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn (weekend jaunt). Also! I love this dress for all the obvious reasons--pretty colors and print, fits well, etc., but I mostly love it because when I put it on my boyfriend started called me "Chesty LaRue" (see: several pop culture references including, but not limited to, The Simpsons and Seinfeld).
...And this lovely top from Banana Republic (thee of the awesome sales)
Tomorrow (the actual big day), I was supposed to hang out with my mom in the city and maybe hit up a little Tea and Sympathy downtown (clotted cream 4-eva!), but she has been taken with a stomach virus, so now my day is sort of play it by ear.
Have a lovely night, bloggers! Back with jewelry (and make-up, Fashion Tidbits, I promise) on Thursday.
