All I Want for My Birthday is a Big Booty Ho

Birthday Wishlist 2015


Can you still want a big booty ho when you're already one? Well, in between stints as a cranky, 70 year old man burdened by back pain and the memories of better times, anyway. I can't say I am all that crazy about being another step closer to not being a teenager anymore (and this is my last year of Forever according to the school system and Tavi). I am, however, trying to console this drying valley of bones with the notion that in five years, I'll only be 22 and that means I'm still pretty young. "Think of all the people who will be eighty-three in five years," I tell myself. "You've still got the world at your fingertips." I say. "Stop yelling at the kids loitering on our lawn," my brother exclaims.

To get in the elderly birthday spirit, I made a little Polyvore wishlist. Man, I haven't done one of these in a while. Mostly because it will take about seven months to three years before I actually get anything off of it. May I redirect you to this wishlist I made on the 23rd of August, TWENTY THIRTEEN. I have only recently acquired the wide brim hat, Celine tote, platform trainers and jelly sandals. It is now Star Date: WAY TOO FREAKIN' LATE.

But it's OK because today, I've made a new wishlist.


  1. THIGH HIGH BOOTS (or anything leather and over-the-knee)
    In all my dreams of the cool teenager I'd grow into as a sapling, they always involved thigh-high, leather boots with a pointed toe and simple court heel that would erase all evidence of skin on my legs. They would be paired Lucy Liu in Charlie's Angels style with a leather pencil skirt and a hot boyfriend. Oh, kids and their crazy dreams.
  2. FLARED/BOOTCUT PANTS/JEANS
    Don't @ me. I could just really do with a good pair of bright orange flared trousers or wax denim in the bootcut with a side of fries and skipping calf day at the gym.
  3. OBNOXIOUSLY LUXURIOUS BRIGHTLY COLOURED SHAGGY FAUX FUR JACKETS BECAUSE I AM COOKIE LYON AND THE STREETS AINT MADE FOR EVERYBODY
  4. PHARRELL x ADIDAS SUPERCOLOUR
    I remember when I was in primary school and my sister was on the cusp of adolescence how she and her friends were ready to commit murder for some kicks with the rubber shell toe, the famous trio of stripes and the automatic implied gang$ta status. Pharrell's range comes in over 50 colours and I want every colour. Imagine being able to match your shoes to anything from your lipstick, eyeshadow, hair, car, lack of ambition and soul. Every day.
  5. A NEW iPHONE
    My iPhone and I are at a bit of a standpoint right now. After two glorious years together, it could no longer take all the accidental slips, trips and falls and the screen has finally cracked. But, of course, these things can never be half-assed with me so as of this day my iPhone now stands with a gaping, shard bordered hole where the home button used to be. 
  6. NIKE AIRMAX THEAS
    But at R1500+ a pair, these will remain a wish.
  7. WHITE HAIR AND BABY BANGS
    I want Gabourey Sidibe's platinum, Beyonce's fringe length and maybe a little colour at the bottom. I'm not sure I can trust anyone in Johannesburg to do this justice at the right price (which would be dirt cheap). A girl can dream, right?
I'm going to spend the next four days holding tightly onto my fading youth and overeating. For everyone who hasn't had their birthday yet, what are you lucky whippersnappers hoping to receive?

  1. Since my brain isn't always a very well functionning one and I'm afraid that I may forget to wish you a happy birthday at the right time I'm wishing you one now: HAPPY BIRTHDAAAY ! I hope you get at least some of the items on your wish list and have a fantastic time celebrating your young years (I turned 20 a month ago and I feel ancient already ;) )! I've been dreaming of the airmax also but God knows my bank account cannot handle this. But hey ho, a girl can dream, or two in this instance !
    Have a great week !

    xo, Charlie

  2. Dude, you basically have listed every item i'm currently dreaming of! Coincidence? I think not.
    The Adidas Supercolours are stressing my indecisive self out. Flare trousers, faux fur coats, thigh-high boots - your wishlist is reminding me of the major comeback 70s fashion is making and I'm so here for it. Happy birthweek, man! x

  3. As an avid thigh-high-boot-wearer I can express that the rumours are true, they DO make you feel like a badass woman who has her life SORTED. I empathise with your cravings for flares <3

  4. ahh happy (early) birthday you aging bag of bones! you're incredibly talented and smart and beautiful and you deserve every good thing to come your way on your birthday and all other days: in particular the cropped flares which always make me want to dance around to ABBA but also destroy everything in a 5 mile radius w my beauty.
