Things are getting busy here at Elegance Revisited headquarters. That’s because this is also the headquarters for I-Have-To-Work-For-A-living Ltd… That’s my excuse for not posting a new outfit this week.
However, I wanted to write a little celebratory post because it’s my birthday on Friday. So, I created the cute little composite artwork you see above.
Yes, I know: as a child, my hair was shiny, manageable, and straight. The curls appeared almost overnight when I hit puberty. And, as you no doubt know, it’s been a lot less manageable since then…
But one thing I haven’t lost is my attitude; if anything, it just gets worse with age. The middle-aged Tiina may not have a crown, but she sure likes her statement accessories. Maybe I’ll revisit the idea of wearing a crown when I get old. I could always blame it on dementia or something…
So, how will this ageing little princess celebrate her birthday, you might ask. Well, usually (a.k.a before Covid19), there would be a big military parade, with flags flying, speeches by dignitaries and generals etc. That’s because it’s an important day for the Finnish Defence Forces. The 4th of June, I mean; not my birthday. I just hope to have some cake.
Anyway, I thought we could have a look at some birthday outfits from the past, starting from last year. This photo was taken on my actual birthday, even though I only posted it a couple of weeks later.
Well, 2020 was a very unusual year for all of us, but for me and Professor M it also meant breaking a tradition (or something that had almost become a tradition over the years): there was no travel involved, and no restaurant reservations. It was the first time in over 10 years that I spent my birthday at home in Helsinki. But at least there was cake.
So, about the traditions I mentioned… For over 10 years, my darling husband used to take me to Barcelona for my birthday. This photo was taken the day before my birthday (I was traveling on the day itself) in 2019.
And this was in 2018:
The 2017 photo was taken when we were on our way to a nice birthday dinner :
Have a nice weekend!
