My sister got me this vintage dress in Paris! It's pretty long and I usually don't wear long dresses. I'm in LA for a while and don't have my sewing machine, so I used a belt to make it shorter for the time being. However, by the time 4 oclock rolled around, my dress was at it's full length! I actually like it, even though I resemble a granny on vacation. It made me look ridiculously tall in the 6th picture. My friend bought me these sunglasses as a birthday present at the flea market! The hat is from Urban.

Listening to: Rio-Duran Duran. Favorite track: Rio.

These were taken on my 16th birthday on Sunday. The day consisted of watching the World Cup and having neutral feelings about the winner, buying lots and lots of vintage clothing at the flea market, free slurpees from two different 711s, a beanie baby with my birthday which is something I've wanted my whole life (!!!!!!), an ice cream cake with my picture on it, and the first sunny day of summer! Overall a fantastic day. Thanks to the readers that told me happy early birthday in my last post!

Happy birthday!! The print on the dress is so fun, I bet once you em it a bit, it won't have that granny-on-vacay vibe. The hat and sunglasses (and the record) give these shots such a wonderful retro feel.

Happy late birthday! I would hate not having a sewing machine! That dress would look good short.

And you should totally go out and learn how to play the ukulele!
