Happy Birthday to Me!

This time, twenty years ago, the world was graced with my fashionable presence. To celebrate this special day I've been indulging myself in some of my favorite things. Chocolate cake was an absolute must, a chai latte is soon to come, but what I'm most excited for is my Joe's Chelsea skinny in their Ryder wash. My favorite boutique, Twist , informed me they are due to arrive any day now and I can't wait to slip them one. We all know my mad love for all things denim and the best skinny- in my opinion is the Chelsea. Sitting a little higher on the hips prevent that unfortunate muffin top and the length is ideal for us glamazons.

I love birthday season.
Happy birthday to me!

Beloved Birkin

It’s no secret that every girl and boy in the fashion industry live for Monday nights, to gather around the couch drinking their coffee and watching Gossip Girl. This Mondays episode was no let down either- the gossip was juicy, the drama was never ending, but most importantly the fashion was fantastic. Now I won’t go into too much detail, for those who still have the episode on TiVo, but the dresses at Lily’s wedding were just fantastic. I adored Lily’s turquoise earrings, although she kept repeating them, but most importantly I’m suffering severe wardrobe envy for her tan ostrich Birkin.

We all know Kelly Rutherford (Lily Van Der Woodsen/Bass/Humphrey) is a Birkin lover, as she named her son Hermes. And no, I’m not kidding. But the woman has a new Birkin every episode! How does she do it?

Maybe I should name one of my future offspring Hermes, or better yet Vogue- I would love a piece of that pie.
