I did it! Last Friday, I stepped over the line and sashayed into the era of the 30's. I must say, being 30 is not so bad after all! What really helped is the fact that my husband was pretty much a mind reader when it came to surprising me with the perfect birthday gift. You see, for a while I've been wanting to revamp my wardrobe. Revamp as in wipe it out, clean slate, start over. I had so many clothes that I had accumulated over the years that were either too "young + cute-sty"(like fit for someone who was a teen) or were worn, tattered and out of date. I've never been a huge shopper, in fact, it stresses me out! The thought of rummaging through racks and racks of clothes in hopes of finding something seemed like looking for a needle in a haystack to me. I wanted so badly to be able to find that groove within myself that drives the fashionista deep down in every girl.
As fate would have it, I found out that there was actually a girl, Marianne Humburg, in my area who was the answer to what I had been looking for. I first heard about her through my sister in law, Kristy. Marianne is a wardrobe consultant and a fashion blogger. She will go shopping with you and help you find pieces that complement your personal style, are affordable, and make you feel fabulous! After hearing about Kristy's experience and seeing all the great clothes she came out with, I was sold.
The day of my birthday, my husband tells me that he booked Marianne! Yes!!! I was so excited! First thing I did was call up my sis in law Kristy and invited her to come along with us. We all had so much fun! The day started when Marianne came over to my house. We rummaged through my dresser and closet and went through each piece of clothing individually, assessing and even laughing at all that was found. We ended up removing a TON of clothes, which I will be selling at a yard sale this weekend :) We then hit the local boutiques and mall and went on a shopping spree! Marianne rifled through the racks of items, resulting in lots of fabulous finds!
After the shopping extravaganza, my husband had arranged for a dinner party at the Twisted Tuna! The table was beautifully decorated by my mother in law and brother in law. It was so great to have close family and friends around the table. It was all made possible by my husband, Jeremy. Thank you for such a wonderful 30th birthday!!! Love you xoxo!
