Oh hi, y'all. I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I know mine was definitely jam packed and topped off with a wonderful BBQ with friends and The Mister. So, with only 26 days until my birthday, the celebration keeps rolling on. Today, my friend Bri from Haute Like Couture is pulling together an amazing outfit, fitting of the 3.0. I hope you all go visit her blog, because in all seriousness it will make you about 86.3% cooler.
"When Angie asked me to contribute to the birthday celebrations on THYMWYA I was relived because I was starting to think I was going to have to invite myself to guest blog.
I wanted to put something together that really captured Angie's personality: sassy and fabulous. I had to fight the temptation to slooot it up hardcorde (because it's what I do when my birthday rolls around) and instead incorporated a hint sophistication that still screamed "I'm here to party." . After quite a few failed ideas I realized the answer was painfully obvious, the HLC favorite: an evening jumpsuit! I drew my inspiration from Gucci's Spring 2011 runway.
I present to you: "It's my party and I'll cry (tears of joy) if I want to"
This little Sass & Bide number had Angie written all over it. Classic yet fun and the perfect silhouette to show off her tiny figure + lengthen her killer legs. I love the combination of black and gold; Angie loves to accessorize so a boatload of gold toned cuffs and bracelets and pretty things on her wrists are a given but I wanted to leave her decolletage untouched because her collarbones are perfect. I know it seems like a shit ton of gold (and it is) but just the beautiful blue/green of the Gucci sandal will show for a refreshing pop of color. A funky coral lip (Nars-Wonder) and a gold clutch (McQueen) finish this off.
To me this not only says birthday girl, but it says The Hotness Your Momma Warned You About.
Happiest of birthdays to you, you darling lady! I can't wait to see what you decide to wear as your ring in another year of health, wealth (not just the monetary kind) and happiness! xo"
Thanks Bri! It means the world to me that you contributed today. I absolutely adore the outfit you pulled together, it is definitely the hotness. Loveyourguts.
