Last month in December 2013, I celebrated my birthday. I had a theme and called it 14kt Gold since that Saturday (the day of the event) was actually the 14th. I haven’t had a birthday celebration where I invited friends since I was a kid, so this time around I wanted to be amongst the company of close friends. The theme color was red and gold and I encouraged everyone to wear one of the colors.
There was a reserved private dining space at an Italian restaurant held for me that day along with surprises planned by very close friends. I also held an event at Blue Martini for more friends to participate in, since the restaurant private dining space could only accommodate a handful of people. I certainly didn’t want anyone to miss out on the special day’s celebrations!
Columbian designer Sandra Hagan designed and made a one of a kind custom dress just for me. I took part of the design process and suggested ideas for her to incorporate in designing of the dress. I also wanted to rock long hair as well, so the entire look that I envisioned came to life that evening. As a final touch to my look, I wore one of my favorite shoe designer Christian Louboutin red pumps to compliment the evening theme. The evening was truly golden!
