my birthday party was a success! thank you to everyone who attended. we held my 24th birthday celebration at the pearl hotel, in point loma / san diego. the venue was perfect for the theme. i've always been a fan of quirky movies, and i find myself celebrating my birthdays to movie themes (last year was divorce italian style)... so this year wasn't any different with the life aquatic with steve zissou. the location embraces mid-century to the fullest, and is already ocean themed, with a huge movie screen over the pool. just add pennant flags, sea-creature cupcakes, and guests, and you've got yourself one fine event. the dress i'm wearing was made by my dear and lovely friend jennafer grace. it's super soft jersey material, custom, and affordable ($90). if you're having something made, it better be flattering and comfortable.
