Hi everyone! I just first off want to say thank you so much for the lovely birthday messages you've sent me. I'm not gonna lie, it's not something I was expecting and I actually got a bit emotional reading all of them. Maybe it is redundant for me to say it, but I really want to say how deeply I appreciate all of your love and support.
As I told you before, I recorded an Outfit Of The Day (aka OOTD) video for my birthday, and I also included a reveal of a couple of special presents.
Abercrombie Lace top (similar / similar)
Forever 21 tank top & satin blazer, size 2
J Brand "Clocker" legging jeans, size 23
Stuart Weitzman Wedgelin boot, size 4
Necklace and bangle were from various Hautelook sales (my invite)
Michael Kors "Blair" watch in rose gold
Louis Vuitton Trevi PM
Lipgloss is MAC 3D glass in Racy (Sadly it's an old limited edition which I am crossing my fingers that they will re-release because it's one of my favorite lipglosses of all time!)
So here is my outfit in pieces since I didn't have room to do a full-body with the giant Christmas tree behind me. ;)
My bling for the evening. Gold tones and Urban Decay Zippy glitter polish. This crystal quartz necklace is especially one of my favorite pieces of the moment. I got it from Hautelook (for a dang good discount) and the designer is Vivian Tamayo. I'm also lusting after similar crystal pieces like this and this. There's just something about rock crystal that is really cool and edgy, and matches everything I own.
Birthday present reveal! This is the Michael Kors Blair rose gold watch that I bought during the Macy's Friend's & Family sale. The Macy's site listed the face as being 41mm but Nordie's and Dillards lists it as 39mm. No idea which is true but I think it looks nice on me even though I have tiny wrists.
Also available in champagne, chocolate, silver, and silver with rose gold accents.
And here is my bag reveal of what I got from Louis Vuitton in Paris! It's the Trevi PM in Damier Ebene. I love the pleats and how it has both top handles and a shoulder strap for versatility. It's my first and only LV purchase and I am totally in love with it!
Here's what it looks like worn using the top handles.
And my favorite way of wearing it, using the top straps which is much more comfortable and convenient.
And of course, here are the two cameos from the vlog at the end of my video.
First is my very special birthday cake appearance, Hello Kitty. =^_^=
And second is my long-haired Chihuahua, Cherry. She's a total sweetie!
I hope you enjoyed my outfit and getting a little peek into my birthday activities with my family as well. It was truly a wonderful one this year and I feel so grateful to be with the people I love, and of course to be given the blessing of your love and support as well!
Just out of curiosity, since the purse was a huge splurge for me, I want to know in the comments how you guys feel about big splurges on luxury items? Is it something you do and do you feel it's worth it? What was your favorite splurge purchase? Let me know!
