one of my friends will be having a big birthday. this is a year of milestone birthdays, and i am very much looking forward to it. i am of many mindsets with birthdays - i love celebrating my friends' birthdays, but don't like reciprocal attention. i do love presents though (ha!) so, for her birthday party, i am thinking a tux with a twist, and if it gets warm, i can take the blazer off and still be in something fun. this is a bit edgier than what i would normally wear, but it's been alot of fun to push the envelope a little. i would also envision wearing this for an arts night out (gallery or theatre event) if my life were that cool. (ETA: please check out other outfits at pancakes & beet juice. Lilly is hosting this week's what to wear where - arts night out)
when i went to the US last time, i finally got the j crew etta pumps while i was there. with the price being 50$ less in the US, a lower sales tax, and a 25% off discount, i got a great deal compared to if i had bought them online from canada.
outfit - blazer: zara, old; vest: preen line, old; pants: club monaco, on sale here; shoes: j crew etta leopard heels, here
