Blast From the Past

Time flies when you’re having fun, especially on your birthday!

A birthday is all about cake, celebrations, and putting together the perfect outfit.

This year, as my birthday approaches, I thought it would be fun to recreate my look from 10 years ago!

The original dress was stolen, but I found a great alternative at the thrift store.

Scroll down to see how I gave my look a modern twist and get some spring outfit inspiration!

 

 

What I Wore For My Birthday 10 Years Ago

In 2014, my birthday dress was a custom yellow eShakti frock with a lovely floral pattern. I wore it on my birthday and also for Easter a few weeks later.

Shortly after, I lent the dress to an acquaintance halfway across the country who coincidentally “lost” it and I never got it back. I don’t know where it ended up but I hope that person donated it and someone else is rocking it for their special occasions!

Updating a Colorful Dress For My Birthday

Fast forward to 2024 and I’ve thrifted a dupe of the original dress. The pattern and colors are slightly different, but it captures the same vibe as the first one.

To match my current style, I opted for a vibrant and colorful look. Although I enjoyed wearing colorful outfits 10 years ago, I now embrace it in a different way.

I no longer shy away from wearing a head-to-toe rainbow. Instead, I embrace it and love every minute of it!

For my updated look, I wore an orange patterned dress with a baby blue moto jacket, a homemade pom-pom necklace, and nude strappy high heels.

I love how the whole outfit feels lighter and more carefree. It reflects the personal growth I’ve experienced from my early 20s to my early 30s. Don’t you think so?

The Present Is a Gift

Recreating this birthday outfit wasn’t just about revisiting the past. It was a playful and nostalgic way to see how my style has evolved with my confidence and sense of self.

It reminds me that fashion is a journey, and there’s no problem in revisiting classics while adding elements that reflect who you are now.

So, here’s to another year, another birthday, and another chance to celebrate with a colorful dress and a whole lot of confidence!
