|Rocking a thrifted J.Peterman dress a la Alice with Trippen flats and my wedding Tiara|
Birthday hats are overrated.
It's my birthday!! Every year, try as I might, my birthday celebrations go awry. Something about this time of year has everyone bustling on with their own business, content to stick to resolutions, go back to school, to work, nose to the grindstone. Instead of partying alone this year, I asked the blog world to join me in my 23rd year of life and celebrate.
Here are the lovely party attendees:
Starting off the party in style, My sister-in-cat, Lynne, brought some of her best shoes to try on for the party! And because she's been one of my biggest supporters - she's also wearing a cluster of buttonflowers with her rocking striped dress.
Continuing on with the gorgeous shoes, Ana steps into the party with her new button boots and a grown-up goth girl look to die for!
My lovely neighbor to the North, Amber offered up her fantasy tulle and teacup photoshoot with the dearly departed Miss Maryjane Frystack. Amber is currently with her ailing chicken, Alma, and the sympathetic alpha-chicken Starr. Much love and prayer goes out to Amber and her ladies. I'm glad to have them at my birthday.
Thanks to a recent trade with the gorgeous Kristan, she decided to share her dressed up MMD gear along with a pair of Fluevog guides for the party!! Halfway around the world, opposite hemisphere, style still sings!
Same birth month, nearly same name - Meghan is a girl after my own thrifty heart. She brought her A-game to the party in her newly thrifted pirate coat and those beautiful boots.
Same name - different sound, Megan, brought out her origami dress, MMD obi, and the most incredible pair of flats. We're here to party and those are some boogie shoes!
Pretty in pink and purple, Beth brought out her incredible skirt and MMD buttonflowers to play. Unpictured here, but she's also rocking the rocks I gave her for Christmas. ;)
New to my reading list, Mia! She's got the best hair around and the cutest smile. I'm a fan from day one and I'm thrilled she joined the party.
Two ladies who always give me the best advice, a fearless sense of adventure, and have been cornerstones of my blogging realm. Patti joins us from her warm weathered beach in a lace blouse.
While Ally is flying her picture in from the shivery Northeast in this cocktail dress and splash-of-color scarf. (You two better behave if I seat you together!)
The mysterious Secret Squirrel opted not to freeze her toes off across the pond (and rightly so) entered a wedding party photo from the warmer months with glass of (wine?!) I did say BYOB. ;) I haven't met SS in person, but from what I've learned about her, I bet she can party!
Cara had to have a costume change - this is a MMD party afterall - I did ask for over the top! So she decided to show up in her MMD belt and swap out into a plaid dress that I might need to steal off her body. GOR-GEOUS.
Tamera must have taken my challenge to heart and grabbed every leopard print around her! This badass beauty is bold! I think she needs some leopard print shoes now. ;)
EE bares her toes in these beautiful Gucci heels! Reading EE's blog is like a calming yoga session. I always look forward to her hair adventurous and her sweet thoughtful posts!
Next up we have FOUR guests, two of which are ticking down the days until their own birthdays. The lovely Mrs Keely and her soon-to-be baby boy and the lovely Mrs Ada with her very-soon-to-be baby girl.
The ever inspiring Pat. I'm so in awe of her project and would love to spend a day crafting with her. She transforms even the ordinary into extraordinary.
While not her intended outfit, Robin of Frannie Pantz decided to keep warm in her kickass boots and teal sweater. Maybe she can start the dance train along those tracks?
Melanie shows up with the best tee shirt ever. She's got the right idea if you ask me!!
My IRL friend, Quiton, had to get in on the e-party too! This girl rocks you guys.
In her own words, Sheila says every party needs someone who is a) late b) stumbling around and c) wearing a lampshade…and she's happy to fill that role. Of course she does it in style with a pair of Melissa Vivienne Westwood Dragon lady shoes and a Desigual dress.
Gracey rolls in for the evening with her Duck Face Robot dance. She's gotta teach us all the dance so we can boogie down all night. (Isn't her hair totally rockin' roll!!)
Anne the spy girl, uncloacks with this party ready look! She may be late, but certainly more than welcome!!
Sacramento rocks the fanciest blouse I've ever seen. Isn't she beautiful!
Don't forget the four feets as well! They're all awfully tuckered out. I am too after such an amazing birthday. Thank you to every one, those who read, participated. Those who sent me cards and gifts. You're all amazing and have started out my 23rd year of life in the best way possible. Go curl up and get some rest! Tomorrow is another day, party hard!

Late to the party, Sheila brings her kitty cat Vizzini to play
