Red, White and Boom!

My 4th of July celebration was hosted by a dear friend in her flat.

Our Hostess

She invited a lot of friends and arranged a garden party for that day – since it’s summer time, and all.

We were not that lucky with the weather, so we ended up squeezing ourselves          ( that’s 40 people ) in her 72 sqm flat – and that people, includes the balcony!

An old paisley kaftan of mine by Maldita, dark blue-green midrib top underneath by Top Shop, orange trousers by H&M, Marni wedges, colourful bangles and bracelets in fuschia pink, cobalt blue, green and orange, and last but not the least, an earring in peacock feathers.

Lucky me, Numer Exconde managed to take some photos of me before the guests arrived.

At the end of the day, I got to take the stage …. just for me to be taken photos of and nothing else, that was 🙂

Exhausted by the event (photo below was taken around midnight), I simply had to take a seat and relax my legs and feet 🙂

Although the event took a lot of energy out of me, I would very much like to be a part of such event, STILL 🙂

Have a nice weekend people!
