joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I just turned 23 years old! And all I can say is WHOOOOA! I cannot believe it. I feel like I’m still 18 years old or something but nonetheless, I did have a fabulous time welcoming my birthday with a few good friends over at Fez the other night.

MAIN TOPIC OF THE NIGHT WAS: Doppelgangers (there’s this doppelganger thing going on in facebook where you look for a photo of someone who looks JUST LIKE YOU and post it as your primary photo). Me and my friends were busy to look for each other’s doppelgangers but I have yet to discover who mine is! Any ideas?

Naturally, a birthday isn’t really a birthday without the essential birthday dress. Last year, I went all out in a red mullet gown inspired by Balmain. This year, I toned it down and gave in to my inner teenager…thus the very kiddie print of rainbow dots (reminds me of gumballs) and the peplum micromini cut! Toughed it up with a studded belt, also from my clothing line and was soooo ready to twirl the night away after that!

It amazed me to discover how perfectly my limited edition Epi Leather Louis Vuitton clutch (a Christmas gift I bought and paid for myself) went with the dress. It was such a happy dress amidst the fact that it was practically falling off me even if I already stitched it up to fit me. I also went for curls which will be impossible to accomplish myself, considering I am so lazy to style my hair.

I found the perfect song for the night for myself too! It’s Plumb’s REAL thus the entry title!

Look at me I’m twenty three
Beautiful a sight to see
Tonight
A little dress to draw the press
And I’ll be leaving
All the rest behind
Well be pleased girl
If this is what you wanted
The whole world is watching you take the stage
What will you say
Aren’t I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real
I close my eyes imagine time
Will not forget
My sacrifice
I numb the ache and decorate
My emptiness
Stand naked in the light
Well be pleased world
If this is what you wanted
This young girl is everything that you made
What will she say
Aren’t I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real
The world goes home
The lights go down
My lipstick fades
Away
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real
Enjoy! xx

What is the name of the LV bag? So cute, I want one!! I found similar one, but it is slightly different. What do you think? http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOUIS-VUITTON-Epi-Black-Red-FRIEDLAND-Shoulder-Authentic-LV-w-dust-bag-Rare-/110999663990?pt=US_CSA_WH_Handbags&hash=item19d8187576

I'm 23 too and I feel like I'm still 17. I'm still shocked I'm allowed to LEGALLY drink. And I should totally be over that by now. Anyway I dig this outfit, it's very tough but pretty at the same time. Also a good site to help you find your doppelganger is: http://celebrity.myheritage.com/face-recognition, it's pretty fun.
