Birthday Presents!!!!

Ok, so its been a week since my Birthday, but this past Thursday, I shared a really memorable experience with my friend Emma. I was extremely pleased to find out that this year my Birthday collided with Ikram's semi annual sale. I decided that Ikram, with its famous Vogue stock lists, would be the perfect place to find myself a little something special. The picture above was taken in their lovely cafe where Emma and I shared Cappuchinos and cookies after an unforgettable shopping experience
I chose this adorable top by Viktor and Rolf Monsieur top. I love the glasses print and heavy, heavy, cotton jersey. The best part is the perfect fit, a fit so perfect that I can't gain a single pound, which frankly is the way I want all of my clothes to fit. 
I paired it with all black and the beautiful, beautiful Jeffrey Campbell heel-less boots that my wonderful boyfriend got me for my Birthday. Ive worn them out every weekend since he gave them to me, they are legitimately some of the most comfortable heels in my closet right now. I'm also a sucker for grey leopard print!
Just a quick outfit captured on Thursday before heading to the Ikram sale, wearing a vintage necklace, Banana Republic sweater, BCBG blazer, and Michael Kors fur. Have an awesome weekend, I'm off to the aquarium with my boyfriend for the day!

Birthday Suit Volume I

This year for my birthday, I decided to focus on jackets (taking a note from Suzy Orman) for my two celebration dinners. Last weekend I went out with my best friends to celebrate my birthday and my roommate Emma's birthday. She looked amazing in an Elizabeth and James silk blouse and Henri Bendel necklace. Emma is the queen of wearing white, whereas I am well aware the if i were to put on anything lighter than heather grey I would instantly spill tomato sauce, diet coke, or red wine on it. 
(BCBG Jacket, H&M button down, Rude vintage wash jeans, Steve Madden Vippper boots)
I found this jacket on my last hurrah shopping trip with my mom right before I left to go back to Chicago. This jacket was the first thing I saw in the store and immediately fell for it. I love the built shoulders, crisp black lapels, and the subtle feather print. I couldn't be happier with the cut and fit. I wore it again yesterday to my fashion class with a tee shirt and Nike high tops; its an amazingly versatile piece. I've been living in this one pair of jeans, I haven't been able to find a really nice pair of vintage wash jeans in a while, and I love the low rise and fit of this pair as well as the beautiful wash. By the way, these boots still hurt like a motherfucker. All for now, have an awesome weekend and stay tuned for a few more obligatory birthday posts!
