Yay, it's my birthday!




And this is what 62 looks like!


Thanks so much for joining me today. Yes, it's my birthday today and I'm 62. January can be a rubbish time to have a birthday, but the older I get, the more I understand that every birthday is a blessing. I've nothing special planned for today apart from having the day off work and lounging around, but I did go out partying last week to celebrate my birthday with some girlfriends (hubby was too exhausted after a very long day at work). Partying for me just means dancing and that's exactly what I did. There's no photos of that I'm afraid, but here's the outfit that this 62 year old bird wore.






The shirt is pre-loved (£3.25), the brand is ASOS and the metallic trousers were £30 from my favourite retro shop in Truro, Enjoy Clothing.  I think the brand is Urban Gypsy, but I snipped the label out and it got mixed up with some others. I love to have a rummage around Enjoy Clothing as it has all sorts of retro pieces and the best dressing up clothes you can hope to find in Cornwall. The prices are reasonable, the staff are very friendly and remember me from previous visits even though I don't get there very often. They've expanded into the premises next door which offers not only more lovely clothes, but also blankets and rugs, ornaments, bric a brac and furniture too. All so very tempting!






I was maybe the oldest lady on the dance floor, but at least I was the most sparkly too!









My silver leather ankle boots are by Buffalo, purchased from TK Maxx some time ago. Two hours of dancing was my limit on heels this high, but golly what fun I had!






This was me taking a little breather while the band rehydrated during the break.






Thanks to Fiona for taking these birthday shots on the night - these were the only kind of shots for me as I'm tea-total, but being stone cold sober didn't stop me having fun! 






Thank you for joining me today. I'll be back on Monday with the Style Not Age Collective when we'll be showcasing our Jewel Brights as chosen by me. I do hope you'll drop by again to check out if we managed to shine bright for that.

  2. Happy Birthday, dear Anna! You look incredible for 62 (get out of town! no!). Wishing you every happiness for another year of great outfits, good times and best friends and family.

    Love those bell-bottom trousers! Ooh, I bet you glittered like a disco ball! I could not do the heels, but I could do the 2 hours of dancing! I am also a t-totaller - I quit drinking just over 2 years ago.

    1. These trousers did earn me lots of compliments on the night Sheila. I suppose I could have taken the boots off and danced for longer, but I was done for after two hours to be honest xxx

  3. You look wonderful. Boy oh boy, if our grannies could see us now. We are so different from them back then. I think two hours of dancing on heels that high is quite an achievement. This 65 year old bird couldn't do it.
    Have a lovely day or what is left of it.

    1. So nice to hear from you Greetje. Yes, how we have evolved our dressing over the generations. What will the over 60's wear in 50 years time I wonder? Thanks for your birthday wishes xxx

    1. Thank you so much Kezzie! I fancy that the soft lighting contributed to me looking much better than I really do in the flesh, but I'll take all of the compliments that I can get xxx
