Happy Friday Everyone! Since last year I did not do anything grand or special for my 21st birthday, I thought about how I could make turning 22 a little more memorable this year. After watching Taylor Swift's big hit "22" music video last year, it kind of got me little excited to turn 22 and it also gave me an idea to create my own 22nd birthday scene. Instead of filming a video, I opted to do a shoot! Aside from my love for styling, I also enjoy creating visuals and set design. So I went on to brainstorm a theme and actually draw out my own set. The theme I decided on for this shoot was...Alice in Wonderland/Mad Hatter Tea Party hence "TwoTwo Wonderland." This was a coincidence, but I would like to point out the hidden pun "twotwo" for wearing a tutu skirt. :) Thank you Pinterest for inspiring me to create and piece together ideas in my mind for this fantasy birthday shoot full of cupcakes, confetti, balloons, DIY flowers, streamers, and so much more. I wanted to capture the innocence and sweetness of Alice, so I kept the color palette soft and light with a pale pink top, mint tulle skirt and nude heels. For some sparkle and elegance, I replaced Alice's black bow headband with a silver jeweled headband. The moment my friend showed me the tulle skirt and told me to get it, I was completely sold by the color and length. I thought it was absolutely perfect. I figured there are not many places a person can wear a tulle skirt, so why not pull it out for a fun birthday shoot? :) I hope you take away some inspiration and enjoyed the pictures as much as I had fun taking them! I guess I can finally say I am feeling 22 ooo ooo. :) Take care and thank you for reading!
