I knew exactly what I wanted to wear for my birthday.
I’d been eyeing this dress at American Apparel for weeks. So on my birthday morning I walked to the store right when they opened and bought this little green number.
Before dinner I hung out with my friend Shimpei (the awesome photographer of Mitograph) and we got birthday coffee and took photos.
One of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own…and that’s saying a lot.
I love Shimpei, he is SO sweet. He came over to our house on NYE and instead of partying, he just cleaned the entire time and made sure I always had a drink in my hand.
Seriously ladies, this guy is boyfriend material.
Alright, I hope you all have a wonderful week. I don’t have work today and this morning is Obama’s Inauguration!
All in all, I think it’s been a pretty successful birthday weekend.

Happy belated birthday! I love that dress, I have the blue version but I much prefer the green. Might have to get that one too. And the nude nails are amazing, what color?
Thank you!!! I ALMOST bought the blue, I’ll probably get that one too ;). Nude nails are OPI but I’m not positive of color. I’m getting them done again tomorrow so I”ll try to remember to look!
If you don´t mind my asking…what size of the dress did you buy? I have been eyeing it online but can´t decide what size! (Wondering if I should size up if it´s super tight)
Hey Nina, I got a medium, I think I could have gotten a small even. I’m 5’5 120, so not sure what to recommend…
wow, really great velvet outfit!
I love you in velvet, it looks great – belive me!
well thanks Diane!!!!! <3 <3 <3
