it's my birthday, i'll buy dior if i want to

It's my 20th birthday -- and also, the blogs 5th anniversary! It's strange that this blog has not actually changed my life, but actually gave my life direction? I don't know what person I'd be without fashion, and I wouldn't have fashion and the family I have within it if I didn't blog. It's given me so much, and I am so incredibly grateful. It gives me drive, it gives me family. I feel at home in it and discussing it and worshiping it and dreaming about it. I don't have an outfit post or anything for you today because I'm out and I don't have a tripod (or any photographer friends who can help me take photos without me spending ten minutes instructing them how to use a DSLR) but I do want to share some of my favorite things at the moment. I'll probably #treatmyself and pick one to get for my birthday, I haven't decided what.

Snaps from my Los Angeles adventures so far. Disneyland (and dead birds) with my darling friend Lolita.


And my favorite happy music video on youtube. I'm going to bed now -- full day later on in Santa Monica, perhaps I'll see you around. To another year in blogging. Let's see where it'll bring us both.

Happy birthday, darling. I totally admire you and I know you'll rock 20 much like you rocked being 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14 and on. . . (oh my god, you aren't a teen anymore!!).

Many happy returns! I've only come by your blog in the past few months but you're a source of inspiration for this 24 year old! I'm a capricorn too, but I don't know how much you read into these things, I enjoy the novelty of reading my horoscope and none of these things coming true. Anyway, I'm sure you had the best of fun, in my experience your 20s are waaay more fun than the teens!

Ahahahahah! I wore my birthday crown oh your birthday because I didn't feel like going out on mine (the 13th) but ended up doing so and consequently forgetting the crown at home... Hope the 20th year is awesome. The black (sheer and pleated)dress just gave me so much life.

Just about fainted when i saw these pants! I LOVE THEM! but of course they are sold out...i couldn't fit them anyway but it def gives me a DIY inspiration once i figure out how to sew a pair of pants hehe. Love all of your picks.
