Gotta get down on Friday. YES I WENT THERE.


Ahem. IT'S TOTALLY STILL MY BIRTHDAY YOU GUYS.

I know I've mentioned this already, but it bears repeating. And because it's a super duper uber special birthday edition of Friday Frocks, it's a double bill! I love any excuse to dress up - you may have noticed - and, well, it's Birthday Week.


Yesterday was my last day at work of the week, therefore my Work Birthday, so I seized the chance to wear a pretty - and NEW - dress. I love this! I spied it a while ago in Dorothy Perkins, and tried it on the other day after already spending too much money on clothes this month. So I was almost willing it to look awful. But it looked PRETTY. I love the print, the cut, the length, the colours... everything.

I knew straightaway it would look awesome with my Bertie platforms, and it REALLY does. Wearing something lovely to work always makes my day at least 27% better. Pizza Hut buffet helps, too.



Shoes - Bertie
Necklace - GoGo Philip

After work, I had a dinner date with my lovely friend Fiona, so popped home to change into ANOTHER new dress. I spotted this in Dorothy Perkins - AGAIN with DP, they are winning with dresses-for-sarahs at the moment - and just NEEDED it.


I both tweeted and blogged about this the other day, because, well, it's flipping gorgeous. And then I went to visit my friend Ali last weekend, and she'd gone out and bought it for me as an early birthday present! So kind and thoughtful (especially as she'd already GOT me something) and I just LOVE it. Even though the style is quite wintry, it's light and sleeveless so perfect for summer. But I also cannot wait to team with with opaque tights and sky high heels. Throw on a little black blazer and you've got a chic little work ensemble.

I seized the chance to debut my new bag, a present from the girls at work, and these adorable hairclips that Sarah from Temporary Secretary sent me. Aren't they adorable?

Tonight I'm off dancing in ANOTHER new dress (it's my birthday, I let myself go a bit mad in the sales) - I'll report next week, I'm sure. Have a great weekend everyone! I'll be back in the morning with day 6 of my Super Awesome OMG Giveaway Week - and it's a doozy. I want to keep it.

  1. wowser....nearly more outfit changes than Anne Hathaway at the Oscars! But then, hell, if a girl cant look fabulous in multiple frocks on her birthday, then when can she?

    The dresses are particularly gorgeous,and I actually just saw the second as summery until you wrote, and then I thought "ahh, yes, you could indeed do that to wear it in a different way!"

    When you said "dresses-for-sarahs" I couldnt help but giggle and nod in unison, as I love every single one, and am generally always in love with pretty dresses, and my actual name is Sara! Maybe there's something about our name that means we fall for dresses easily....maybe secretly the meaning of it is not princess, but actually 'dress lover'!

    Wishing you many happy returns for your birthday, and that the rest of the day brings all sorts of fabulousness for you!

  2. Ahhh that blue and spotty DP dress is gorgeous! I think even with a white lacey bolero or cardi with some pumps would look cute for late summer nights out too :)

    Glad you're having a good birthday! LOVE that you changed your little girls to have balloons and party hats too!

    xoxo

  15. I have totally already wished you a happy birthday, but am definitely going to take this opportunity to say it again:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY :)

    Loving the dresses. I've gone a bit mad in the sales too, & I don't even have the excuse of it being my birthday :/ But how can you resist pretty dresses like that!? (I can't!)

    With you on the DPs love at the moment. Well pretty much. I don't love that they sent me the wrong size in a lovely dress, & it's now out of stock in my size - boo :(
    But other than that, they're still in my good books. Just about. Because they've got such lovely stuff in at the moment! I bought quite a lot in their sale, just couldn't resist..
    Wish I'd seen your spotty one too though, because I love it!

    Hope you have had a fantastic birthday, & hope the rest of it is bloody marvellous too :)

  19. I wish I wasn't such a stingebag. I love so much of the DP stuff at the moment but I can't/won't afford to buy any of it at normal prices. You're making me want to rethink my ways though. These two are both so flipping beautiful.
