Birthday Wish



Today is my birthday, and since I've decided to start counting in dog years, that means I'm 6. In fact, Georgie and I are the same age today (I made her birthday the same as mine since I don't know exactly when it is). Happy birthday to little Georgie; I wish Mark and I could take her out to dinner with us tonight, but apparently it violates some sort of health code in San Francisco.


Mark is taking me to Incanto, one of the best restaurants in town, to celebrate my big day. As exciting as that is, I've actually already gotten the thing I wished for the most, something I've wanted for a very long time, in fact.


There's even a style connection (isn't there always?), because the thing I've recently gotten has something to do with all of the outfits pictured here.


Can you guess what my wish was, and how these outfits relate to that wish?

This last one is an older outfit that was re-worn; the last time was with different hosiery and shoes, 
but I didn't photograph it again.





Outfit 1: Lucky bag, vintage jacket, H&M t-shirt, Moon Collection skirt, Sofft shoes.
Outfit 2: Helmut Lang blazer, Noa Noa top, Wendy Brandes necklace, Sunhee Moon skirt, BcBGirls shoes.
Outfit 3: All Saints skirt and blazer, Michael Stars shirt, Wendy Brandes necklace, Faryl Robin shoes, Foley + Corinna bag.
Outfit 4: Helmut Lang blazer and dress, Alexander McQueen scarf, Born shoes.
Outfit 5: All Saints dress, Promod blazer, Red Dress Shoppe belt, Wendy Brandes necklace, Coccinelle bag. Shown here with Bettye Muller shoes; worn the second time with the BCBGirls shoes shown in outfit 2.

I am going to guess a new job!
Congrats Audi!

I have been reading your blog for quite a while and find your creativity very inspiring. I am a biologist too. Geeks unite!

I'm guessing new job as well. You look more covered up than usual - not that that's bad, just different. Still most stylish!

Happy birthday!

I would agree with Anonymous R. because you look so snappy and businesslike in all the outfits--otherwise, I haven't the faintest. Happy birthday, Audi! Mine was on Wednesday; I'm throwing a handful of imaginary confetti in the air for all our September birthday buddies. Also, I am all about the shoes in that second outfit. Gorrrrgeous.

I am also on team job. Happy Birthday, Audi, and congrats on whatever well deserved presents you've received!

Happy Birthday, Audi! You look absolutely AMAZING in all of these outfits. I can't even guess what your wish is because I'm so distracted by all your pretty bags and jackets and shoes! =) Congrats on getting your wish, whatever it may be, and happy birthday to Georgie as well. ;D

Time travel machine? Those outfits all have a touch of retro:). Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday, Audi! I like your method of counting; I am 8 : >

All your looks are super-smart and chic - you have a promotion, a new job, a fresh spring in your step???

Laura said...

I am also guessing new job. If so, congrats, and happy birthday! It's my DH's birthday today as well.

Happy, happy birthday!

Beth said...

I was thinking either warm weather - notice that they're all skirts - or Mark (the wedding ring).

LOVE your shoes :) And happy birthday!

Happy Birthday!!! A new camera? Love all of these outfits.

Megan Mae said...

Happy Birthday, Audi! I'm also going with new job, because "business-y" was what I originally though scrolling through before getting to the text. Hope you have a great night.

I was leaning towards jewelry myself.... A second honeymoon perhaps? I'm terrible at these things....

Kayron said...

Many happy returns!!! And, while I am also thinking it must be career-related, you must put us all out of our suspense...how DO they all relate?

Secret Squirrel said...

Happy birthday! It must be a new job? Congrats for whatever it is, (in case my guess is off!)

Happy Birthday! I'm guessing new job as well - so many businessy, snazzy outfits....

Have a great dinner out!

Shybiker said...

Hurray! Happy Birthday, Audi!

Louise said...

I'm terrible at these guessing games, so I'll just say, "Happy birthday!"

May this be your best year yet!

Fawn said...

Happy birthday to you and Georgie -- I hope you brought her a doggie bag!

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

I also am terrible at guessing games...but I wish I had looked this good when I was 6!! I love all of these looks, but my favorite is the third one..that jacket is amazing! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

san said...

Happy Birthday to you Dear Audi. You look beautiful and your new puppy is just as adorable as Georgie! Are they really brother and sister from the same mother? They have so much the same demeanor. Very cute.

I am also terrible at the guessing game, but I still wanted to pop in and say happy birthday! I hope it was phenomenal. :)

I was initially thinking a new camera or an a new ring; but then I read these posts, so now I'm inclined to switch to the new job camp. I remember you saying a while back that something was brewing... and your outfits do all seem rather more businessy...
At any rate, a very Happy Birthday to both you and the Georgie-girl! I can understand your wanting to take her out to dinner with you- I've felt that way myself!

ReaderRita said...

oops, that should be: "a new camera or a new ring"...sorry.

Sheila said...

Late to the party as usual! Happy Birthday, Audi! You look lovely in all of these looks. You really have a great gift for creating that vintage-inspired look, but without it coming across as too costumey.

I would have hired you in a second just for these outfits alone! Very memorable for interviews. Brava!

I am sooo in love with your red and black scarf!! Your outfits are all lovely! I'm just starting to try and develop my own fashion sense a little more- I love jeans and sweatshirts, so your outfits are giving me lots of great ideas of what pieces to put together and how to accessorize!
