In The Fashionista's Closet: B'Day

It's my 39th birthday today! W-O-W! I am so blessed to have such awesome family and friends and it's hard for me to believe the number because I definitely don't feel 39. (Although the grays that try to keep popping up in my hair tell me otherwise.)
Sunglasses: Giorgio Armani
Silk dress: Thrifted
Owl necklace: Garage sale / long gold necklace (wrapped around twice): Forever 21
Belt: Came with another dress
Boots: Nine West
(after looking at my pics I should have worn some bangles but I was rushing around this morning)

I had something totally different to wear for my "Big Day" but it was too cold out so I am going to see about wearing it on Wednesday since it will be 70 degrees then. I figure I can dress all week in Birthday Outfits to celebrate my birth, nothing wrong with that, huh?

I felt so 70s in this silk animal print dress, which is fitting since I love and was born in the 1970's. I was described as a "doll baby" an "African queen" and "a tiger" so I guess the kids approved.

Meeting friends for drinks later so I will posts that outfit plus there's still 4 more days of birthday outifits, so stay tuned!

This is what I listened to this morning complete with all (well, most) of the dance moves:

Get Me Bodied @ Yahoo! Video

I love the guy who dances with B, his facial expressions crack me up!
