I’ve spent a lot of time looking for party decoration inspiration for my birthday next week. Most of my attention has been focused at the Confetti System’s beautiful garlands, their colour schemes are just brilliant. Sherbet-y pastels mixed with sludgy neutrals and metallics is something everyone can get on board with and I think I might use that as inspiration for my birthday outfit too.
Pleated skirts really give that streamer feeling, and have that wonderful ruffly party vibe. Add in some cobwebby knits and some ultrasoft leather accessories and you’ve got an outfit fit for a prom. All it needs is some kind of headband made from those ’60s nylon chiffon slips and some glitter spray and it’s party time.
BTW any IRL friends: this is isn’t a birthday wishlist, although if anyone wants to get me the SS11 Whistles skirt that isn’t out yet I’ll happily hand over my first born, or some of the lesser vital organs.
