Time To Celebrate But What Am I Going To Wear?!?!

Today I turn another year older and Saturday is my 10 year high school reunion. You know what that means? I need something new to wear, ASAP. I looked in my closet and found nothing, so what is a girl to do? Turn to a VERY talented blogger friend of course!

If you haven't been to visit Blair at Delight By Design you are missing out. She regularly posts ensembles and every time I find myself commenting that she needs to be a professional stylist, seriously. I asked her to put together an outfit for me for this week and look what I received in return. I think I have died and gone to Heaven.
classic embellished look:
dress by anna sui (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/45029)
stone earrings from Alex and Ani (http://www.cusp.com/shoponline/product.aspx?folderid=/shoponline/accessories/jewelry&itemId=Y0A1G), clutch from kate spade (http://www.katespade.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3491709&cp=1863844.2180761&parentPage=family)
manolo blahnik sandals (http://www.barneys.com/Taix/500067740,default,pd.html)

tribal chic:
dress from tibi (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/42218)
earrings from anthropologie (http://www.anthropologie.com)
thong sandals from banana republic *http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=38006&pid=644608&vid=1)
studded clutch from DVF (http://www.dvf.com/dvf/browse/productDetailWithPicker.jsp?productId=H1082154P9&categoryId=ACCESSORIES+AND+GIFTS)

Not one but two beautiful choices, complete with links to each item. I literally want every single piece she picked out. This may be the best birthday present I get! THANK YOU SO MUCH BLAIR FOR DOING THIS!!! You are the best! For more ensembles along with great interior inspirations be sure to visit
