Happy Birkin.

It was my best friend CC's birthday on Friday. (If you haven't noticed, I have a lot of best girlfriends and I couldn't be happier about it). Our CC is a special one. Extremely hard to shop for but at the same time really doesn't expect to be shopped for. Unlike myself, she is very low key about her Birthday. We decided to go to Barney's Rooftop Restaurant for lunch and then do a little shopping. One of CC-fashionta's main goals in life is to own an Hermes Birkin. Naturally none of us can afford this at this point so we incorporated her goal into her birthday lunch. Alex, who you have met in previous entries and by now understand her knack for kitchy ideas, came up with an affordable Hermes Dream for CC! Below you will see a picture of an Hermes shopping bag filled with gorgeous Orange Roses. It matches, it's cheap, it makes a fabulous centerpiece, and it's CC. Of course we gave her a gift certificate to start her Birkin fund ( hopefully those gift certificates don't expire), but the smile that the Hermes floral arrangement brought to her face on that sunny rooftop was priceless. Something so simple and sweet is worth way more than a 10,000 handbag, and at the end of the day it makes that low key birthday seem like the biggest party you've ever had. Try it sometime....I'm sure Alex wouldn't mind if you stole her idea!!
