It's my birthday, too - yeah!








Yesterday was my birthday! Christine and I met at Lincoln Center bright and early for the Tory Burch and Michael Kors shows, stopped by the Harper's Accessories Bazaar and caught up with lots of friends. After the shows, I went home, ate some lunch and a delicious slice of the best cake ever - FUNFETTI! - and took a nap. Later on, Bobby and I attended the J Sabatino show and he cooked my favorite dinner - Broccoli, cheddar and gruyere quiche and potato leek soup! Birthday!

Fun facts: Yesterday was also my grandpa's, Kim's dad's, Eliot's, Prince Harry's and a few of my readers' birthdays. How crazy is that? And today is my grandma's birthday!

Outfit Details:
Moschino Cheap and Chic button up: Beacon's Closet
self made skirt: made from vintage and recycled materials (the waistband is made from antique trimmings that are SO fragile!)
MAC clutch: courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff
Lace Expoze peeptoes: courtesy of Nine West

Love Love,
Keiko Lynn

  11. Vichyssoise (potato leek soup) is my dang favourite soup in the entire planet. I need to have more of it. In fact, this cold weather is perfect for that. That dinner sounds amazing and tasty. I would love to have that right now, honestly. I didn't eat lunch today.

    Wow, that Moschino blouse is really so textured and interestingly woven together... I love the checkered lace sleeves. I love how you mixed the prints against the texture of the blouse. It's a nice play on patterns and textures while bringing out the florals of the lace by echoing it with the lace of the shoes.

    It's really, really brilliant styling!

    You look lovely and I hope your 26 was wonderful.

    Happy Birthday, Keiko.

    It was wonderful meeting you; you're truly a sweetheart. Thank you so much for you & Kim's help. You guys were great.

    Funfetti is my favorite cake too. I make the cupcake version with funfetti frosting every summer for my bday :)

    I looked at apartments while I was in NY, so I might just be out there in the coming months. Let's definitely get lunch
