My first post for this year is dedicated to... ME!!! No, it's not brought about by my self-absorbed tendencies this time but by the plain and simple fact that today is my birthday. I could imagine my baby cousin Elija singing his birthday song. "Happy Birthday to you. Cha cha cha! Happy birthday to you. Cha cha cha!". I think, contrary to what others say, my birthday falls on an opportune date, even if majority of us have already spent all the holiday pecuniary gifts we've received. Because it coincides with the beginning of the year, providing me a reason, or rather a wake up call, to act more maturely than how I did the previous year. If last year's was all about celebration after celebration after celebration after celebration, this year's birthday celebration is all about modesty and surprises. Come what may :)
What better way to celebrate my birthday and at the same time welcome 2013 than be in this beautiful gown from Edressy. My vision kind of zeroes in on the clothes that do not overwhelm my miniature frame. And by this, I mean clothes that have the the-longer-you-stare-at-it-the-more-beautiful-it-gets allure. They're lovely at first sight but when you look at them more intently, that's when you'll unravel its inner charm. (Naks! Kunwari may eye for detail! Hahaha) I seldom wear accessories and when I do, it's not a guarantee that I'll look more well-put with them on than when they're not on. I'm scared with accessorizing as I have not yet learned its language. This is why I let what I wear speak for itself. The gown I chose from Edressy instantly grabbed my attention as it gives a nod to a lot of things that I favor: first, it's minimal in design. It's simple yet so striking; second, I've always wanted to wear a ball gown; third, it provides the perfect canvas for whatever mood I have. I can wear it over and over again. Mater of fact, I'm going to wear it once more this year. Allow me to try to surprise you ;) If you're looking for gorgeous gowns without having to spend a lot, then you're in luck for there's the online fairy godmother who delivers gowns on time: Edressy.com
Gown: Edressy| Belt: H&M| Watch: Mango| Earrings: Bvlgari
I wore my gold metallic belt from H&M instead of using the ribbon for that extra edge that I was gunning for. Added my gold watch and my heart-shaped earrings, pulled up my hair in a loose small bun and I was contented with the look. Here are my other choices from the store:

Sorry for the grainy pictures. I was in a hurry that I've forgotten my camera so I had to use the iPhone.
