Celebrating

Shoes Jimmy Choo and Dress Vintage Roberto Cavalli found on Ebay.

This year I was in Italy for my Birthday.  It was a wonderful and happy day. 
I think we all like to dress up for our Birthdays and this year I wanted a special dress, but I couldn't find anything I liked in the shops. So I decided the only way to go was vintage. 
I remember this dress on the catwalk. I loved it.  It was all over magazines at the time and famously was worn by Victoria Beckham to Elton John's party. However I was far to young to have bought it when it was new.  I just admired it in Vogue on my lunch break at school. I have never seen one on Ebay or in a vintage shop before.  I think it is the kind of dress that most people keep because it's so special. So when I found this one just before my birthday I knew it was meant to be. So here it is. I hope you love it like I do.
