A very merry unbirthday!

A very merry unbirthday
To me
To who?
To me
Oh, you
A very merry unbirthday
To you
Who, me?
To you
Oh, me
Let's all congratulate us with another cup of tea
A very merry unbirthday to you
Now statistics prove
Prove that you've one birthday
Imagine just one birthday every year
Ah, but there are 364 unbirthdays
Precisely why we're gathered here to cheer
Now blow the candle out, my dear
And make your wish come true
A very merry unbirthday to you
- From ‘Alice in Wonderland’

I had a very happy ‘unbirthday’ at work yesterday. Due to my birthday being in the holiday period, the girls at work decided to make a big fuss of me early. It was really lovely. We had deliciously rich, dense (alcohol tinged) chocolate cake, we went to Italian for lunch, and I got some lovely presents. I am particularly fond of the marcasite brooch from my boss who dug it out of her own collection. We think it’s from the 1930s. I also got Madmen season 2, and some lovely body products. Then the girls got me a lovely OPI care set and some nail polish. Yippee! I also love my vintage birthday card. So cute. I bet that puppy above is called Fifi.

And here’s our luncheon affair! We all felt sick from the richness of the food, including Katy’s uber creamy pollo risotto.

1. Katy and I.
2. Lauren, the assistant editor on the same mag as me.
3. Cassie and (awesome vintage shopper) Bec mucking around.
4. The group!

Here’s what I wore for the occasion. I picked up a copy of Notebook magazine to read as I was waiting to leave for work, as you can see. Excuse my early morning flash-face look.

Shirt: Ses
Skirt: Tokito
Shoes: Studio 56
Bag: Vintage via Etsy Allen Company Inc (A bargain at $9 US!)
Earrings: u-tech

Signing out on this stinking hot summer evening - I know I'll be sleeping with the air-con all night. I can't believe this weather!
