Spooky Tree Print Dress and Birthdays

I bet you have lots of friends with birthdays right now. It’s a very popular time of year to be born and everyone right now is a Leo, so on top of it being birthday season, all your leo friends are just wanting to be adored with parties. Leos just can’t help it, right?  We need attention.  As for me, getting older (I’m turning 34 on tuesday) means that I’ve been making less of a big deal about my birthday – although here I am talking about it to all my readers.  But it’s a funny thing – I don’t want the fan-fare or the big parties.  I just want a quiet night with my intimate circle – eating food and having some San Pelligrino soda (my favorite drink of the summer!). And it’s odd too – to be 34 and to be queer and have a lifestyle that doesn’t quite fit the “norm” – I don’t have kids, I don’t own a house.  But my life is really quite lovely – I do have two sweet dogs and a beautiful apartment with S.  And I am pretty settled – I have a job and I like to spend a lot of time at home.  It’s a far cry from many of my other lives.  So many other lives I’ve lived.

But instead of waxing nostalgic, perhaps I should tell you about this dress – which is a lovely maxi dress I bought on Asos a few weeks ago.  It isn’t on the website right now, which makes me think that perhaps it’s sold out, which is the saddest.  I hope they restock it.  It’s called the “Spooky Tree Print Dress” It made for a perfect dress for walking around the city yesterday – the weather was a little chilly, so i topped it with my favorite faux-leather jacket from forever 21+.

Oh and for those who are regular followers, you may notice that my hair is a bit more violet now – I got it updated yesterday and I LOVE it!!
