Birthday Girl

3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Vintage costume pearl necklace worn as belt. Chanel logo-drop earrings. Birthday candle necklace. Gold bangle (a 14th birthday present). Kenneth Jay Lane flower ring. American Apparel heart tights. Miu Miu shoes.
What is time anyway? I feel 17 forever... I'm the party girl in a birthday candle necklace (cost: free) & the ultimate frock. It's the gray version of look #26 from Phillip Lim's fashion show & was featured in both Bergdorf Goodman's Spring Collections Magazine & April's W Magazine. This U-neck dress has a paper-bag waist, a pleated skirt with sequined panel & a double-happiness bodice (the frontal paillettes form a crocodile pattern, while the back's bows tie me up/tie me down).
I craved a classic NY evening for this year's birthday - theatre fit the bill: A Little Night Music starring Angela Lansbury & Catherine Zeta-Jones (I spied Ms. Zeta-Jones' husband (Michael Douglas) in the audience). Afterward I mingled with a mix of omnipresent financiers & visiting Frenchmen at Bar Mark in the Mark Hotel's lobby. A loving & satiating birthday in every way.


  1. Your wardrobe and style is impeccable...I absolutely love your blog!

  2. What a lovely dress! Simply lovely.

    I am jealous of your theatre outing. I adore plays and it's been far too long since I've been to one!

  3. happy birthday! the dress is absolutely stunning, I feel it would be hard not to enjoy yourself wearing it!

  4. Nice skirt!
