Michelle’s Birthday Wishlist!

As you may or may not (probably not!) know, my birthday is on the 28th of September. Libras all the way! It’s my 21st, so that’s…exciting, I suppose, although I doubt I’ll do any of the usual get falling down drunk at a bar biznass. (Which would be a terrible idea anyways, as I am what’s known as a “smart-assed drunk”. It’s bad.) Anyways! You know what birthdays mean, right? Unrealistic wishlists!

  • Unrealistic, indeed! I love the look of the Hayden Harnett vest, and it would be such a great fall piece – but $384, ouch! I wouldn’t want anyone to buy it for me anyways, aside from the price I think I’d be afraid to wear it for fear of messing it up. I can get the same look from a gray vest with some nice detailing, & that’s something I still want.
  • The Fluff bag and wallet are more reasonable by far. I really, really need a new wallet (the one I have, I’ve been using for years and got at Claire’s. No joke.), and I could use a cute laptop bag. I’ve been dropping hints to Matt!
  • Oh, shoes. Shoes shoes shoes. The Frye Kelsey and Camper Bianca shoes are more spring-y than autumnal, but I love the way they look and I bet they’d be fantastic with a pair of tights for fall. The Melissa Ashanti boots have wonderful lines that would make my legs look longer instead of cutting me off at the ankle, plus hello! waterproof!, and the Kenneth Cole studded pumps are not only sleek-and-edgy, but supposedly mad comfy too. Also just discovered Cri de Coeur shoes – the Jessica boots and Estelle pumps in wine, please! Good fall shoes both.
  • The Tano Mona Lethal bag for its lovely color and usefulness (you can switch the straps around! It converts and stuff!).
  • Other items of note include: CDs (Ting Tings, Lily Allen, Michael Franti, Mad Caddies, Streetlight Manifesto), the latest Buffy & Angel comic books (I need 3 and 4 of Angel, actually!), I Love Your Style, Ignore Everybody, Trust Agents, Relations That Suck, Design-It-Yourself Clothes, and random chunky crazy jewelry/feathered hair accessories. Also, the Unconventional Guide to Working for Yourself – not sure how that’d work as a birthday present though!
  • And I would lurrrrve a new camera. I don’t have anything specific in mind, just something that doesn’t have a timestamp (or at the very least, has one that’s optional!). The Polaroid is a trooper but sometimes colors come out very dull with it, and I hate that timestamp.

Realistically, I’m just going to have fun spending time with Matt and friends. Matt’s birthday is the day before mine (Want to know something even weirder? He’s 2 years older than me, and one of my besties’ birthday is the day after mine – she’s 2 years younger!) so I need to be brainstorming ideas for him too! Like so many guys, he is impossible to buy for. We’re going to Missouri the first or second weekend in October, so getting to see my family and friends there will be another terrific present. I’m excited just thinking about it!

What’s your favorite way to celebrate your birthday?

    Those shoes with the studded heels are swoon worthy ;-)

    My favourite way to celebrate my birthday is with good friends. This year I wasn’t working and my boyfriend and I didn’t have much money.. We went out to the movies though and had cocktails. It was on a Tuesday it was a fun night.

    My 21st (that was a while ago) I hadn’t wanted a party right up until the end when I changed my mind hahaha. Luckily my friends were all up for a last minute celebration and we had drinks, the usual. Considering I don’t drink much now for my birthday I would like to get away for the weekend!!!

    HAVE FUN. I hope you are spoilt. Presants to yourself are always the best presants haha x
