Your birthday. That once-a-year, privileged day where you'll be pampered down to your preciously Kiehls-slathered feet in lavish, opulent wonder. No matter what age you're destined to be elegantly wafting off the candles for, every birthday goddess (or god) adores the same old classics: friends, family, and a birthday cake! (Oh, and the ocassional gifts enveloped in polished, satin-slick wrapping paper of course!) 
This day is the only day where you will truly be the A-list starlet, ready to capture and captivate your admirers in style. You deserve the best, most glamorous tastefully-crafted birthday, and your wardrobe shouldn't be excluded like last year's peach Juicy sweats. 

There's a perfect ensemble for every ocassion that's guranteed to make sure you're looking like a million on your very special day!

BIRTHDAY LOOK #1: 
Dress - Nordstrom | Jacket - French Connection | Clutch - Dorothy Perkins | Bangles - Dorothy Perkins | Necklace - Forever 21 | Heels - Aldo Shoes | Perfume - Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Perfect if you're celebrating your birthday by: 
A dinner out with friends and family, going clubbing with your girls, throwing a bash at a lounge/club

✖ Strapless Dress - For a luxurious visage, a stunning, strapless dress in a pink-hue hugs the best features of your figure with a slight, airy ruffles. 
✖ White Blazer - A là Hollywood celebrity, a white blazer perfectly charms the same style offered by your favorite silverscreen stars on the red-carpet.
✖ Nude heels - If you own a pair of black heels, you must of course, have the right to possess a pair in nude tones, don't you? The simple tone of the heels will compliment with the dress and the blazer instead of completely stealing the attention away. 
✖ Clutch - To store your birthday festivity must-haves, do it so with in a light burgundy clutch, easy and effortless to travel around during late at night! 
✖ Jewelry - Accessorize accordingly with an array of bangles that coordinates with our neutral, nude-inspired color scheme. Since the dress is a strapless, showcase off with a beautiful, eye-catching flower necklace, a perfect conversation topper. 
✖ Perfume: Daisy by Marc Jacobs - Even if you're enjoying a wonderful, five-star dinner at Le Fancy Resturant or taking the plunge into club-hopping, you'll be clouded in a mist of Daisy by Marc Jacobs, a concotion of strawberry, grapefruit, vanilla and violet petals that's made to channel your inner innocence

BIRTHDAY LOOK #2:
Shirt - Net-A-Porter | Skirt - The Row | Cardigan - Bints | Bag - Shop Ruche | Shoes - TOMS | Necklace - Republic | Ring - Matches | Perfume - Vera Wang Princess

Pefect if you're celebrating your birthday by:
 Shopping with your girls, catching a movie at with your friends, enjoying lunch at your favorite cafe

✖ Striped tee - This ensemble is mostly inspired by Serena van der Woodsen's infamous, Parisian chichi outfit on season four of our guilty, past-time pleausure, Gossip Girl. For the afternoon out with your girls, a loose-fitting, casual striped tee is your newest, trendiest best friend... for now!
✖ Light skirt - Stay true to your feminine side with a breezy, tea-rose skirt. 
✖ Cardigan - In order to prevent this ensemble from melting into a bland, tasteless closet disaster, a super-soft cardigan in royal blue comes in to save the day! 
✖ Sequined TOMS - A little dash of eye-candy is nescessary, provided for with a pair of silver-sequined TOMS. Not only will it relax your feet from all that mall-venturing, but for every pair of TOMS that you purchase, they will give a pair to a child in need. Saving the world by shoes? We think yes! 
✖ Leather Bag - Wallet with money? Check. Your Blackberry/iPhone swarming with "Happy B-day" texts, IMs and FB notifications? Check. Compact mirror? Check. Store all of your beloved belongings in a wardrobe year-round staple, a leather bag. 
✖ Jewelry - Long, golden strands with black bows as your necklace centerpiece, accompanied loyally with ring to match the hue of the cardigan. Done, and done. 
✖ Perfume: Vera Wang Princess - The name cites it all! Feel, look and live in a fragarence like a royal beauty, Vera Wang Princess blesses a graceful mix of lady apple, Tahitian flower, dark chocolate, amber and water lily.

BIRTHDAY LOOK #3:
Top - Alloy | Shorts - Metropark | Bag - Michael Kors | Sandals - Net-A-Porter | Bracelets - ZapposFarfetch | Ring - Dorothy Perkins | Perfume - Viva La Juicy

Perfect if you're celebrating your birthday by:
A venture to your favorite themepark/amusement park, going bowling with your group of friends, taking a stab at laser-tagging, exploring the boardwalk

✖ One-shoulder top - It is your birthday, so in order to dress-up an otherwise blasé-baring outfit, declare an envy-eyeing statement with a one-shouldered top. Ultra risqué, yet perfectly acceptable for your special day!
✖ White shorts - Denim white shorts for those dwelling in the warmer, palm-fringed climates, or swap-out with your favorite pair of dark-wash jeans if you happen to be catching people sipping from hot chocolate mugs and sporting Uggs. 
✖ T-bar sandals - Celebrate with your friends in a summer classic, T-bar sandals, that can still be worn in the spring/fall and even exclusive, rare days in the wintertime for us Southern California-ers. More chilly where you call home? You're always welcome to don flats or boots as an alternative. 
✖ White bag - To tone the oufit's variety of colors down, strap on a white leather bag, large enough to fufill your adventure needs.
✖ Jewelry - Clad your arm in bracelets in turquiose and stud-slicked purple, and finish off with a floral ring. Acessorizing is the first, important step in transforming any outfit!
✖ Perfume: Viva la Juicy - Become a stylish wild child with Viva la Juicy, a candy-coated confection of wild berries, jasmine, caramel and mandarins. Choose Juicy!
