Today I turn 28 and first and foremost I want to thank the good Lord for allowing me to see another birthday.  He has watched over me always and forever! Birthdays should not be taken for granted, especially in this crazy, violent, disease-ridden world we live in.  For those of you who know me, you know I love celebrating my birthday! And not because I need attention, but because I love being around everyone I care about! Well almost everyone, my friends & family that live in other places know I care about them too! The other reason is because it gives me an excuse to really dress up! I almost always buy a new dress every year...BUT this year I'm having some difficulty finding THE PERFECT dress. I don't know if I've become more picky, or I'm suffering from body image issues, or if stores around me forget that occasion dresses can be sold in February too!  Whatever the reason, I'm really struggling to find that IT Dress. With all of the drama around this dress, I've decided to go back in time and look at my outfits from Birthday's Past.  Enjoy!

21st Birthday - Lewisburg, PA - Bucknell University - 2005
This is one of my favorite pictures from college, and one of my fav outfits. Of course I don't fit any of this anymore, and I got rid of it years ago, but my friends surprised me with a cake, and someone snapped this awesome shot of me surprised!

22nd Birthday - Still on the hunt for these pics if I took any at all...

23rd Birthday-Philly-House Party & ICE Nightclub - 2007
I loved this dress because of the cut-outs, but once again can't remember where I bought it from. I'm pretty sure it was some store in Franklin Mills Mall

25th Birthday - Las Vegas, Nevada-2009

Unfortunately, I don't remember where this dress was from, but these sandals were from a store inside Bally's Hotel.  After 2 days of roaming around vegas and dancing in clubs, Tori and I decided that we needed chic flats to go out in...couldn't handle another night in shoes. I always hated that I couldn't find a better color than these silver ones, but oh well. I still have them! Bag is from Express! And one of the few times you'll see me in contacts! :-)

My best friend from college, Torrina and I at Caesar's Palace. Her birthday is a week before mine! We are February babies, so we went to Vegas to celebrate our 25th! It's a milestone people! We turned a Quarter Century!
25th Birthday Party II - Allentown, PA - House-Party-2009
I know, I know, this dress is a bit much for a "house party", but I took 4 dresses with me to Vegas and I didn't wear this one, and since I paid $200 something for it, I was determined to wear it! Hence me wearing it at my house-party. I had a house-party because I still wanted to celebrate my birthday with my friends in Allentown (Where I was living at the time!) 

Dress: Cache
