It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to

Posted in My wardrobe by Nneoma Ulu on October 22, 2009

It’s my birthday this week so I’ve set myself the task of finding a birthday dress to celebrate the occasion in true style. The reality of these credit crunch times is that I won’t be buying anything new as I have a number of items in my wardrobe with the tags still on.  A girl can still dream so I got to thinking about what my ideal birthday party dress would be (if I had a limitless budget).

Every girl needs a good little black dress and I’d happily take this one from Acne. Especially if it comes with those shoes! Simple, understated yet sexy. The shoes really make this outfit.

You can’t go wrong with a Marc Jacobs dress. I’m loving the colour of this dress and I can imagine having a good old boogie in it.

This sparkly Balmain number is the perfect dress to ensure that all eyes are on me. Another good dress for dancing!

Erdem Autumn/Winter 2009/10 via style.com

Erdem knows how to make dresses that women want to wear and I want to wear this! I love the simple make up on this too, the red lips look great. Simple, girly and not too understated.

Whilst I don’t think the styling in this image is the greatest, this Peter Pilotto number would be my number one choice, with black opaque tights and killer heels. It’s a little bit statement and a little bit look at me and that’s the whole point – my birthday only comes around once a year. Maybe if I start saving up now I can afford to buy it for next year’s birthday!

I’ve taken my head out of the clouds and gone shopping in my wardrobe. I’ve settled on a floral print number from H&M’s Divided Exclusive collection. Someone get me to the bar!

    Me too! Personally loving the Erdem one but agree it may be something to do with the girl, the make up and the styling. Also, recently discovered your blog via Anna H and it’s fab! Hope you have a great birthday and sure you’ll good in whatever you wear! xoxo
