Cheers to 21 years!
August 26, 2018 | LIFESTYLE | PERSONAL
Hey loves! I finally turned 21 & aside from being excited about that, I’m excited to finally be sharing it all with you. My birthday was so fun & memorable - the things that I CAN remember of course. My best friends & I stayed in LA for 4 days, unfortunately some couldn’t make it but to the ones who did - thank you so much for making it & having fun with me. XO
As for everyone else, let’s get right into what we did for the weekend!
Where did we stay? -
We flew to Los Angeles @ 7AM & originally we booked a penthouse for 3 nights but once we landed that morning, something happened to the house & we had to change the plans a bit. We ended up booking 2 different penthouses in different locations. The first one we stayed at the 1st two nights & the second one we stayed at the last night. Both penthouses had a skyline view of LA & that’s all I really wanted. The second penthouse was a lottttt bigger & nicer but you’ll see that in the video for yourself!
My dress -
To start this, I just want to say I 100% got the inspo from Paris Hilton’s 21st birthday. I actually remember being obsessed with it when I saw her wear it. I was 5 years old & at the time I was (still am, slightly) obsessed with Paris Hilton & would watch her show every time it was on.. re-runs too. The older I got I was set on finding something similar or getting someone to make it for me if I couldn’t find it. Luckily I did find something similar! I’m so obsessed with this dress. It’s so pretty, I wish I could wear it everyday.. not that anything is stopping me from doing so but.. ya know! I’m usually one to never re wear something from an occasion but I don’t think that will apply to this because I really do want to wear it again & again. My dress is from MESHKI & if you’re in the US it sells for $323. The quality is so good & needless to say, so worth getting. My shoes that couldn’t match more perfect are Bebe & sell for $60. I wore a black faux fur coat that is shown in some pics & it’s from I.AM.GIA & sells for $121. I will be making a separate posts for a more detailed outfit post & similar finds.
Kira Kira! - If you don’t know what that is, it’s that app everyone uses to make shiny things have fake sparkles to make it prettier & that’s basically what I wanted everything to look like. I wanted everything (and everyone) bright & shining. My color theme was rose gold, gold, silver & white. I asked my friends to stick to that color theme as well & they looked amazing. I will be linking where they bought their outfits below as my usual outfit posts! Besides the clothes, my cake was def my favorite thing about the whole look. I told my friend Mikaela that I wanted a cake with dripping gold & she found somewhere nearby the penthouse we stayed at & it came out perrrrrrfect! It was exactly what I wanted. She got the cake from Big Sugar Bake Shop in DTLA (Instagram @bigsugarbakeshop).
