Animal Magnetism

So....while wearing this outfit I was told, after the event, that someone had commented on my 'animal magnetism'. 

It's my 35th birthday today.
And while getting older depresses me no end, it is nice to know that with some people I still have 'it'....even tho it is with my Great Aunt.

And because I know you all want it, here's some close up bakelite porn.

Oh yeah baby, that's what I'm talkin' about.

  16. Happiest birthday, darling girl - I really don't think it would be possible to more vintage-tastically stylish than you are here. I adore every element of your vibrant, summery outfit.

    Thank you very much for your comment on my nail polish post today. You were squarely in mind as one of the polish experts I mentioned! :) I'd love to see a post about your fave shades any time, especially given how many you have on hand (pun intended) to draw from.

    Wishing you a joyfully fantastic year ahead, my friend!

  18. Happy birthday, dolly. It is an honour and an inspiration to have you as one of my peers (37 years, here). You are gorgeous, fabulous and amazing. I try not to care about age, but when I see some bloggers and the realisaton hits me that THEY COULD BE MY DAUGHTER!Well, just argh. I hope your day was as fantastic as your dress. xxx


Thanks so much for commenting! I read each and every one, even if I am slow to respond sometimes!
