Birthday party & vintage 80's sequin dress

Helsinki, 3 degrees


Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

Earlier this week I spoke about my upcoming birthday party which I hosted yesterday! It was a great party, although a modest party, first held at champagne and wine bar Skumppa and then later at nightclub Namu (that I've spoken about in my earlier blog post here).

Like always in good company, the evening passed too fast! But I must admit that I'm a small stresser when it comes to organizing parties. One could say that it's wonderful to have a birthday party once a year, because it's fortunately once a year, haha. Being a guest, it's definitely more relaxing than being a hostess. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the party to the fullest! Thank you all dear friends!

When I started to plan the party, I also started to look for a dress. I've been crazy about sequins for a while already so I knew I wanted some in my birthday dress as well. I found a bargain, a wonderful 80's vintage dress on Etsy from the United States and when I saw the dress, I was sold! I'm mean look at it! Isn't it beautiful?

It was in perfect condition with no lose sequins or beads. I combined it to some new earrings from Glitter and shoes from Kookenkä. I completed the look for the evening with a high bun hairdo, inspired by no other than Sarah Jessica Parker, done at my hair salon Hiusgalleria and a blue clutch that I had from before. Voilà!

  5. You look so gorgeous hun! That is a beautiful dress, the colour is perfect on you. Sound like you had a wonderful party, many happy returns of the day. About your Q - I don't live in the city, so I am not too sure about the proceedings of the event or program. The only prices that would probably go up are hotels and tourist sites and souvenirs. Restaurants and clothing stores will stay the same. it was like this during the Fifa World Cup as well.
