What I wore: My 40th birthday party

Last night I celebrated 40 with a bang. Burnt Orange served endless plates of delicious Tapas and we were bursting at the seams. There was lots of loud laughing coming from all ends of the room and too much champagne poured.

I completely loved my Kitten D'Amour dress. It was so fun and playful. I teamed it with a strutting pair of Pinkinc heels. I found these at Myer reduced from $189 to $28. The price made me love them even more.
Thanks to the lovely Mrs BC's House of Chaos for the centre top photo.

    1. Thank you, I'm certainly glad I was well away from the breast feeding stage, my dress wouldn't have accommodated larger breasts :)
