this was a big week - not only was a lucky enough to attend the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - my early birthday present from Gentleman X arrived.... but more to come on that! on to the outfits....
striped tank, Alex Wang. pink cardigan with tie, jcrew. jeans, jbrand. leopard flats, Banana Republic, circa 2007.
shirt dress, jcrew. maroon long sleeve cotton tee, Madwell. stockings, Wolford. leopard booties, a random pop-up shop from Fashion's Night Out, 2010.
on my way to the VS Fashion Show!! dress, H&M. shoes, Miu Miu. lipstick, Cherry Lush by Tom Ford Beaute.
and now....the early birthday gift from the very generous Gentleman X...... a Proenza Schouler PS1!!!
beautiful black leather, black hardware....
and it's perfection. i'm openly obsessed with it!
work from home Friday, and headed out for coffee in my favorite Free City t-shirt (grey tank underneath, Nike. leggings, Lululemon). Free City makes the best lounge clothes known to man. expensive, yes ($150 for a tshirt), but well worth it. their tshirts and sweatpants are the kind that feel like you've had them for 5 years from day 1!
like i said - a week full of excitement. i'm about to recap the Victoria's Secret show in a separate post...so i'll tell you all about that later. but the highlight of my week was definitely getting my very first PS1 bag! my birthday isn't until this upcoming Thursday but that's quite all right - my bag will continue to make me giddy for many many months to come. Gentleman X had it delivered to my office (he knows how much i LOVE to get packages!) and as i was opening it, one of my close co-workers said to me... "I have literally never seen you this happy." indeed.
so this upcoming week should be exciting! it's my birthday week so i will, no doubt, be breaking out my best outfits to date. i love birthdays!
