30th birthday Part 2


I bought this bodycon dress with rope detailing at a sample sale in Manila. They were selling clothing by Phillip Lim, Seven for All Mankind, Tracy Reese, Rebecca Taylor, BCBG, etc. This dress was the only item that had the label cut off and they had no idea what brand it was! All the items were definitely authentic items...growing up in Asia, you quickly learn to identify the fakes. Anyway, I have no idea who the dress is by! I would love help sourcing this dress! It came with the belt I'm wearing.

We had a truly incredible meal at Henri. This was taken at around 11:30 pm. It was one of those really long meals with amazing food, wine and conversation! It felt good to sit and really talk to hubbie....we don't get to do that as much anymore with lil miss thang ruling over the household!

In front of the Elysian! Such a gorgeous place!

Giddy with wine and thankful for such a wonderful day!

Switching gears, is anyone else watching the Bachelor or The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? (side note: one of the bachelorettes wore the lavender dress I wrote about here!) I love bad, reality TV! Let's discuss!! :)

Erica (January 5, 2011 at 7:06 AM)  

oh yes!!!!! i watch housewives on Beverly Hills!!!!!!!!!! Their homes are amazing!!

stephanie (January 5, 2011 at 8:06 AM)  

Yes! I am all over the RHOBH. Addicting. I'm a reality tv junkie :)

Lilly (January 5, 2011 at 8:38 AM)  

Beautiful pictures. You and your hubby look like a million bucks on the picture in front of the Elysian. :)

Kelly (January 5, 2011 at 8:41 AM)  

I love the shoulder detail!

OMG I am obsessed with all the housewife shows on Bravo - they are addicting?!??! What are your thoughts on Camille? And the fake cigarette?!

PearlsAndGreenTea (January 5, 2011 at 8:48 AM)  

Erica: Their homes are really amazing, especially Lisa's!

Kelly: I think Camille is a total nutcase!! Before I saw the show, I sympathized when Kelsey left her but after seeing what she's like, I don't feel as bad. That medium with the fake cigarette was hilarious! She just lost all credibility! I'd love to hear what you think!!

coolkids (January 5, 2011 at 9:43 AM)  

I wish you lived nearby...I could discuss all day!!!
The bachelor........FANGS!???!!
RHWOB....Camille is CRAZY! What do we think of her and Nick??? That is an odd relationship.
Adrianna's gold extensions..WTH? She is too old to wear those things.

I've kinda been dying for a fur vest, and you may have just sealed it for me. Looks like you had a wonderful evening!

Fabulous outfit! I love the last pic of you two!

Lili (January 5, 2011 at 12:57 PM)  

never miss an episode of RHOBH (well theres always reruns)!

fave BH housewives : LISA and KYLE
most hated BH hw : CAMILLE, of course

PearlsAndGreenTea (January 5, 2011 at 1:03 PM)  

coolkids: The relationship with Nick is so inappropriate! I can't believe his wife is fine with it!

Lili: I completely agree! Love Lisa and Kyle! They're the most normal ones and seem so sweet!

TheBabyMammaChronicles (January 5, 2011 at 1:07 PM)  

Adorable dress, and a cute couple. I saw that she wore your dress! Crazy. I love some real bad tv for some reason. I described this season of the bachelor to the hubs as a terrible recipe for awesome. Where do they find these people?! Almost all of them seem a little crazy or unstable. And the fangs? And the neck biting when rose received? Really?

Kristyn Burtt (January 5, 2011 at 2:28 PM)  

Happy Birthday! And RHOBH is the best of the bunch.

OH.....and I know who The Bachelor picks. I won't reveal it here. I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

What's a bodycon dress?? Kind of like those Herve Leger bandage dresses...kinda? sorta? You look fabulous!

Oh my...I've only seen a couple episodes of RHOBH, and I saw the episode w/ the crazy medium and the cigarette. What a freak of nature! Those ladies are all so catty. They need to lay off all the collagen injections. Yikes.

Cee (January 5, 2011 at 9:06 PM)  

Happy belated birthday, Jiye! Love the pics, you look amazing in the dress!

Jiye, I love coming to your blog and looking at your wardrobe. HAHA! You are a true fashionista. I love the mixing and matching of cheap & expensive. Now that is how real fashionistas should roll. The dress is fabs- how in the world do you NOT have ddong bae after having a baby? SO jealous. Let me know the secret so that I can wear something tight after I give birth. hah!

As for trashy tv..how can you NOT love that stuff. It's so addicting and fun to watch. I love looking at the houses for real house wives. But sometimes- I wonder how they got so rich. Most of them seem to lack "common sense." Anyways, you look stunning at the age of 30. Keep it going hot mama!
