How Unisex-y are birthdays! Whether you’re a woman or a man, you’ve got one. And as it turns out, ModCloth’s Newsletter Coordinator, Crystal, and I share ours tomorrow. So to celebrate, and to keep in line with the binary nature of the occasion, we threw a party utilizing two items that know no boundaries when it comes to gender!
To chip away at the frosty winter chill here in the Pittsburgh, we partied in tropical style by sipping coconut-y concoctions from our cocktail umbrella-capped Quest for the Holy Tumblers and by blowing out the candles on the cupcakes set atop a pedestal of Forbidden Island Tiki Stools. Prior to this, when I asked Crystal what she would wear if she could create her dream birthday outfit from ModCloth merchandise, her response was, “Ruffles!” To accommodate this request, then, I set up an outfit for her using the bright and bubbly (and, yes, ruffly!) Caribbean Queen Dress as the basis for a wistful-for-warm-weather look that was complemented by the Stephanie Leggings in Navy. The ruffles run rampant again around the ankle of her Unicorn Princess Heels in Pewter, and the cute Cosette Rosette Headband adorns her hair adorably as a final touch.
And for myself? Well, I just wanted to look dapper as Dan as I revel in the anniversary of another year lived by wearing a snazzy, checked blazer over a baby blue button-up with black pants, black cowboy boots, and a black ribbon tie.
Happy birthday, Crystal. I raise my Quest for the Holy Tumbler in hopes of many happy returns!
