My 25th Birthday Celebration at Blind Barber!
Last week, last-minute, my girl Valissa Yoe planned my birthday party at the Blind Barber. I have been working like a mad woman and hadn’t had any time at all to plan my big 25 but my girl Valissa came to the rescue and to top it off, she DJ’d too! I swear, my birthday was so wonderful I kept thinking something bad was going to happen. Everything fell into place and everyone came out to party even though it was a last-minute event. This birthday made me realize how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life who genuinely care about me. They made a conscious effort to make sure my day was special and I feel so fortunate to have all of you, even my readers who couldn’t attend, supporting me and loving me for who I am. I received so many birthday wishes it was nearly impossible for me to thank all of you but I tried my best to personally do so. If I missed any of you, just know I am truly thankful.
The Blind Barber was the perfect venue for my birthday party. The 1920’s barber shop setting tugged on my heart-strings and the lounge/bar in the back was no exception. My guests and I were greeted with the best hospitality and we had such an amazing time. Just going through the pictures makes me smile. We danced, we conversed, we laughed, and we ate delicious cupcakes from the Little Cupcake Shop on Prince Street thanks to my loving friends at Billy’s.
Take a look at more photos and details of my party and what I wore inside!
I had two outfits in mind but this one felt more Birthday Girl-ish. I wore a vintage red cape, a ballerina corseted cocktail dress I bought in Vegas, my glitter Steve Madden pumps, vintage jewelry, gloves, and my vintage red hat.
