The Black Dress

IMG_9904

Birthdays are always special. What differentiates them,
however, is the new age that we turn and what comes with it. When we are
younger, birthdays seem more special because they are associated with theme
parties and eating too much candy. As we grow older, birthdays become less and
less about parties and candy but more about our personal achievements and
growth; whether regarding our relationships with our loved ones, our careers,
our hobbies, our goals or new business ventures. Everything really.

Brenda Della Casa, a New York based writer, wrote a very
famous article that has been shared millions of times on Facebook called “Being
Twenty Something”. The article talks about the joys and woes that come with
being in your twenties. The very first line of this article says, “They call it
the “Quarter-life Crisis”. It is when you stop going along with the crowd and
start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you don’t
know….”
I believe that this realization is called change. Turning 27
a few days ago came with a change that is reflected on the pictures below: I am
wearing lipstick! For the first time in my life! And it was not so bad! I was
actually very comfortable in it, for a person who has never worn lipstick
before. To mark this milestone in my life, and my birthday, I chose this LBD
from ASOS which I paired with Valentino shoes.

As small as it may be, change is as good as rest. So to all
women who are contemplating doing something for the first time, big or small,
do it! It is not, and actually won’t be, so bad.

Here’s to being 27 and fabulous!

Love and Love.
