1. Nothing says Birthday quite like Sophia Coppola’s adverts for Miss Dior. 2. My Grandpa Red always said that every woman should be given these three things on her birthday: flowers, a good book, and perfume. If I had a choice, I would love to get a bouquet of peonies, Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants, and a bottle of Angel by Thierry Mugler. 3. It’s no party without cake!
Last Friday, I did something not so smart. I refused to check my perfect trench coat that I found on consignment five years ago and, as a consequence, it was stolen. I’d like to have a moment of silence for my poor, lost coat.
Welp, looks like I need a new coat! Need a great trench on a budget? Here are some classic finds for under 120 bucks:
I fan girl-ed a little when I saw this shot of Elenora Carisi (in case you missed it, here’s the post where I profess my girl crush for her). I love how she pairs the plush, velvet texture of this jacket with this beautiful, Valentino spring dress.

Get the look for less! Pair a cornflower blue, flora dress with a touch of velvet and an adorable pair of t-straps. As always, I like to toughen my look up a bit with a biker style jacket and studded t-strap flats.
