My birthday salubong, I stayed up and waited for the stroke of midnight signifying my turning a year older and hopefully wiser in this black tutu tiered skirt from Glitterati.

Very similar to the pink one I wore last December 19,2008 this skirt is one of my absolute favorite designs since it spells glamour through and through.

I could not quite decide what I wanted to wear as I toast to welcoming my 22nd year. I knew I wanted to wear something I made but what exactly was still hazy so I let my old trusty Ipod decide for me and it landed on FOB’s Tiffany Blews. The lyrics go——

I’m not a crybaby
I’m THE crybaby
A caterpillar that got stuck
Mr. Moth come quick with any luck
A long walk to a dark house
A Roman candle heart keep us far apart
I’ve got your body doing alright
Hate me baby, maybe I’m a piece of art

Oh, my friends all lie and say
they only want the best wishes for me
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live…

Oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
you’re a faded moon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
woah, woah
and oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
but you’ll be faded soon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
woah, woah

I can make your heart slow
I can feel the weather in my bones
Wish hard enough, I can turn it to what I like
Your pupils they’re big
They’re rolling like dice
they say they only want the best wishes for me
(they only want the best for me)
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live…

Oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
you’re a faded moon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
woah, woah
and oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
but you’ll be faded soon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
woah, woah

Not the boy I was
The boy I am is just venting, venting
Dear gravity, you held me down in this starlit city
(x2)

they say they only want the best wishes for me
(they only want the best for me)
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live…

Oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
you’re a faded moon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
woah, woah
and oh, baby you’re a classic
like a little black dress
but you’ll be faded soon
stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)

The little black dress. I didn’t really find a black dress to wear but I chose this instead and improvised. It’s a black ballerina tutu skirt from Glitterati’s Bright Young Things line paired with the most perfect black tanktop ever from Topshop accessorized with a gold cinch waist belt, gold strappy platform with Michael Kors and gold hoop earrings form Aldo.

It was classic me… I always go back to tutus no matter what so I guess it was just right that I greeted my birthday in one. The thing with tutus is that they never fail. I love feeling like a puffball and the added volume is something I love as an alternative to the clean and crisp body hugging and tight fitting pencil skirts very popular nowadays. It’s playful and stylish at the same time.

I’ve been celebrating my birthday since Ssaturday! (haha) But for my actual birthday (tomorrow, February 10) I choose to be with my family and boyfriend, as I always have. Foie Gras here we come! xx

Check out Nina and my online store GLITTERATI this week and next as we launch new pieces of our Bright Young Things Collection. Cheers!
