Dress? h&m (recent) Belt? Thrifted Trench? Club Monaco, thrifted Boots? Winners Harness? Clyde's Rebirth photos by Miz Merl
One of the reasons I went to NYC was to join in the celebration of Morgan's birthday. Cause that is what I do... I travel the country to deliver birthday bumps. Who's next?
I planned on wearing the belt half inside and half outside my dress. I did the same thing with this cape, open the side seams just enough to slide a belt through... It gives me a little shape up front and keeps the pretty drape in the back free. What I didn't plan on, was having access to Merl's handmade Clyde's Rebirth jewelry and her wares looping their way through the dress and making me feel special all night. I also didn't plan on wearing flats... but I decided to piggy back a friend while wearing heels the night before and you can guess exactly what happened. My ankle is still tender.
That night we watched the sun set over the New York skyline from a rooftop patio in Brooklyn and we cramped in as much conversation as we could. Sound romantic? It was. I am very thankful I could personally deliver Morgan her birthday bumps this year.
It should be noted that these pictures were taken on Saturday night. At the time, it just seemed ironic to put the girl from Canada in front of the huge American flag that dominated the street. The following evening we were hanging around watching a movie, when the news of Bin Laden's death broke on Twitter. And just as I will always remember the moment I heard about the attacks on 9/11, I will always remember this historical event as well. An event that hit closer to home in the company of my American friends.
