birthday suit

October 22nd, 2011

a couple of weeks ago i celebrated my 25th birthday, and it was pretty much perfect! here’s a shot (literally, hah…) from the beginning of the night before we headed out to the bar for some debauchery. earlier that day, nate took the two of us out for a day at the spa, which was unbelievably relaxing. and a day earlier i got an awesome gift from my friends hayley and milo when they offered to dye my hair super super blonde, just like i’ve been wanting for so long.

also among my gifts…a vintage turquoise necklace from my friend david; and from my sister emily, chanel’s ‘coco blue’ nailpolish, part of their 3-shade collection inspired by denim.

a closer look at my new hair color…love it!

and finally, my beautiful michael kors rose gold watch from my parents. i love the weight of it and how oversized the face is. i don’t think i’m ever going to take it off!

better a late birthday post than never, right? thanks to everyone who took part in making my 25th such an amazing day…love you guys!!

a little fashion week wrap-up of some favorite looks and detail shots. also definitely reconsidering the boyfriend jean for this fall, they look so stunning on frida and the mystery lady there in the maxi coat.

some detail shots of the balenciaga s/s ’12 shoes. this collection continues to blow my mind. did i happen to mention my birthday is coming up…? these babies just have to be available for pre-order, and i’m sure they’d only cost an arm or a leg, maybe both…

balenciaga s/s 2012

September 30th, 2011

side note…vogue’s review says that nicolas ghesquiere visited san francisco’s de young museum while making this collection. he viewed the same classic balenciaga pieces in the museum’s special exhibit just as i did a couple of months ago. love that he took his inspiration from cristobal balenciaga’s orginal pieces, and the collection turned out….well, let’s just say it’s by far my favorite so far this season…
