Birthday suit

My personal favorite part of my birthday (after cake, of course) is planning my outfit. This probably will not come as a surprise to most of you. I don't actually know what I'm wearing yet on Friday, but I did come up with a few fantasy outfits on my old friend Body type and budget aside, here are two ensembles I'd happily don on the big day. Somehow they took on an almost Aniston/Jolie duality... what do you think?

I think I'm partial to the first one but I may be biased because I'm obsessed with that bag. Which do you like? Or would you go another direction all together?

Coming up tomorrow: another interview and a birthday week bonus: reader design dilemma. Stay tuned!
