23rd Birthday - Part the Second

Thank-you ever so much to everyone who left me birthday wishes on my last post! On Thursday night my friends, Jacoba and Stef, and myself went to La Bohème bar to see A Wink and a Smile Burlesque Seduction Society, again.

Photos of the performance were not allowed but I got a couple of shots of me with my pals!

Stef and me on the left, Jacoba and me on the right.

It was certainly a lovely night out filled with charming ladies, a magician (I do love magic tricks, I must say) and more cupcakes (Jacoba's birthday gift to me). La Bohème has such a great atmosphere, too - it's certainly shaping up to be one of my favourite places in Adelaide and I hope to spend a lot more time there in the future. They seem to have a nice selection of cocktails for those interested in such things but, as I don't drink, I can't say whether or not they are recommendable!

My outfit for the night:


I've had this dress for quite some time and was despairing that I couldn't wear it because I hadn't shoes to go with it! Then I had an epiphany, you may call it, and pulled these red shoes out from under my bed, realising that they would be a lovely contrast to the navy blue of the dress. I was over the moon because this is one of my all-time favourite vintage finds. I barely ever come across vintage wiggle dresses let alone ones such as this!

1950s dress - Empire Vintage
Stockings - Love Kylie
Shoes - Big W

Thanks, once again, for all the lovely comments. I may have one last more post about my birthday to come.

Love,
