My birthday was on the 4th of July, but I practically started celebrating it the moment July began, with some shopping. I was looking for a birthday dress and something to wear to the Flippish.com launch at Fiamma on the 2nd. Landmark Department Store at Trinoma always has a wide range of great dresses that don’t tear holes in my wallet. And guess what? My dress made it into Stylebible.ph’s coverage of the party.
What a nice early birthday gift. But what I didn’t know was that my friends had gotten together and organized a surprise birthday party for me on the 3rd. To distract me, my sister took me shopping and bought me a straw fedora from Mint in Robinsons Galleria.
Then the next morning my mom took me shopping for the family’s present. We got these lovely funky hi-cut skate shoes from DC Shoes at Res|Toe|Run.
In all, it was a retail therapy-filled birthday week. I’m happy to be starting another year (yes, I count in birthdays, not in New Year celebrations) with the people I love.
