Happy Birthday To MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Today I turned 25. I feel old. I think I would ideally like to be 23 forever ^.^ To make up for turning one year older, I came home yesterday to find TWO packages waiting for me.


I had wanted to take pics last night but didn't get around to it until just now. I'll update this weekend with better pictures but for now...

Louboutin Lady Claude in Blue Acid Python:



These are without flash...not really what the shoes look like in real life but what the heck, posting them anyways :)





Sorry, I got a little carried away with the pictures :P Its really hard to capture the color on these...I feel like they're more purple than blue in real life. Anyhow, blue acid python was a BIG deal for Louboutin Fall 2009. I was originally on the list for the LV boutique but I chickened out when they actually came in...I just wasn't mentally ready to spend $1300 on one pair of shoes. Lucky for me, they WENT ON SALE for 40% off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*UPDATE* As I was falling asleep last night, it dawned on me...I had surpassed my original CL goal. At the beginning of 2009, my goal was 25 CLs by 25. These Lady Claudes bring me to 50 CLs by 25.

And then there was this.....


F I N A L L Y - my red maxi!!!!! I've been waiting for this sucker for I dont even know how long. This color was even harder to capture than the blue acid python. I gave up after awhile but I'll try again in natural sunlight this weekend. This red is described as a "true red"...very vibrant. I would say its like a tomato red with a slight hint of red-orange. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it :) My Chanel family is almost complete - I need sea foam green, bronze, and fuchsia to complete the color wheel buuuuut truth be told, I probably wont rest until I also get purple caviar, beige caviar, and patent...

I was playing around with my iPhone when it freaked out on me:


Kinda nifty...

Oh my dear! First of all, Happy 25th bday to you! All the best to you and more CLs/shoes/bags to come! Hey, don't feel old! I'm 35 years old but I always feel like 25! LOL!! You're still very very young...hehe!

BTW, those blue acid pythons...I love them! I actually saw them in Paris when I was there in September.....didn't get them coz of the bad service. LOL! But they are really TDF! I remember there's a pumps version right? Wear them in good health!

And congrats on your red maxi! I'm happy for you...hehe! Oh...hope I'll be able to score my bleu roi lamb jumbo soon....crossing my fingers!! Wish me luck!

Happy happy birthday again!

Thank you Mia ^.^ The years fly by now...I hardly remember what I did as a 24 year old :P

Yes, the blue acid also come in decolletes and VP. There is also a nude acid.

Do you want a bleu roi lamb maxi?? My SA ordered those and I'm pretty sure they didn't sell out yet...lemme know!!

Hi Michael! Thank you so much!! I'm in love with the red and I'm itching to break it in. I was going to take it out for a spin today but was running late this morning (I hate switching purses)...I'll probably be using it by tomorrow :)

Thavasa said...

Happy Birthday to you!! You've got amazing Chanel collection! I love all the colors on your flaps!

Purse Addict said...

Thank you, Thavasa!!

I get weird ideas into my head and I'm not even sure when I decided that I wanted a flap from each color family :P The only colors I can do without is yellow and orange :)

litlstrawberry said...

Happy "always be 23rd" birthday to you, Jenny.

Oh, so if I stay at 25 forever, you are always 2 years younger than me. ;P

lilmissb said...

Happy birthday!

LOVE the blue acids! Really wish I can score them soon.

50 pairs by 25? Holy moly you've been busy!!! You're only a spring chicken anyway. Imagine all the pairs you'll have by the time you're 30!!!!!

Heather said...

happy birthday. everything is gorgeous as usual. gosh i need chanel in my life... ASAP.

Purse Addict said...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVELY BDAY WISHES!!!

BCBG: LOL...I think you're the only person (besides me) who appreciates my cats sneaking in some camera time :P

R: HAHA...can I always look as good as you too?!?!

T: What size are you? 35? I'll keep an eye out! I know there was a 35.5 left but I'm not sure since that was a while ago :( And yea, I went a little Louboutin crazy this year!

Heather: Yes, you doooo!! I'm thinking of changing my name to CL/Chanel addict since we all know those are the only two things I blog about :P I dont even remember the last time I went shopping for clothes (well, besides today...)

Purse Addict said...

Thank you elanie, Sanaa, and Karen!!

lilmissb said...

Thanks J! I'm a 35.5 in MC so I'm guessing the same in LC but LV has sold out apparently :( Oh well, I'll go on the hunt in 10 days time...

Purse Addict said...

Yea 35.5 or even a 35 would work for you. I have the patent LC in a 37 but I had to get these in a 36.5 cus it was the only one available. A bit tight but do-able :P

Julia said...

Happy B day!

i say you did good on gifts!! OMG, i got no CL and Chanel on my 25th B day. well, i did get a bachelor pad when i was 26...

hope you had a romantic dinner later with those two gorgeous.

Purse Addict said...

Thank you, Julia and Imma!!

Bon Chic Bon Genre said...

Hi dear....oh thanks for looking out for me for the bleu roi. What I want is the jumbo size, not maxi. I want lambskin...hehe..not caviar. I think I've found it....hope it's gonna be real soon! Wish me luck! :D

Cheers,
Mia

ManoloChooLou said...
