How I Wore Vintage to a Surprise Birthday Pool Party

August 2nd, 2011

Hello and happy TUESDAY, vintage lovers!!!

I meant to share this post with you yesterday — but admittedly, the day got the best of me because all I did this past weekend was relax & unwind with absolutely NO work accomplished!

So while yesterday was major catch-up day [I’m sure many of you can relate to those Monday blues!] today is major summer weekend fun reflection day thanks to my experiencing wearing vintage to my roommate/best friend’s surprise birthday pool party!

I LOVE planning & attending surprise birthday parties — if I had my choice, they’d all be surprise “WOW!” moments for everyone to take part in. I just think that there’s something more magical and meaningful behind the spontaneity of a surprise. I would love to research the history of surprise birthday parties — my guess is that they became popular in the ’50s, when there was more disposable income and the organized family unite of the ‘burbs reigned surpreme.

While I can’t take credit for spearheading this particular surprise, I can take credit for wearing some pretty awesome vintage pieces to celebrate Jesse’s [my roommate] quarter-life-birthday in vintage style!

Keep reading after the jump for a glimpse of the vintage pieces I wore, and how we orchestrated this sensational summer shin dig!
