The Birthday Blog Post


There are a couple of things this birthday girl would like for her 43rd.

How about a genial high/low mix?

Here’s the “high” (in more ways than one):


Here’s the "low" (from Anthropologie):

I like how this ensemble references a postmodern Hitchcock heroine; think of Kim Novak in that iconic gray suit. Indeed, I get Vertigo just from looking at the heels on these Manolos . . .

But although I’d like those things to materialize, I simply LOVE what did arrive on my birthday plate from my two daughters.

A detail from a birthday pig, made by my just-turned six-year-old lassie:


And the shocker—this hand-made embroidery that’s applied to some Anna Maria Horner Bohemian fabric, made by my almost-nine-year-old darling:


The most stylish birthday ever.

Happy Birthday Miss C!!

You are so lucky to have such sweet and talented daughters. That's got to be even better than those fabulous shoes!

Happy Birthday, Miss Cavendish! I love your high/low combo, but you're right: I wouldn't be able to wear those Manolos, either.

Seems like you're having a GREAT birthday! So glad for you...

Your nine-year old's embroidery is just beautiful. So artistic. What a great gift and keepsake.

Have a super (fashionable) year.
