Birthday Girl Invites you to Celebrate the Gift of Life

Birthday Girl shirts on display.

On Wednesday, July 9th, 2014, I attended the Celebrate Life! Soirée’ presented by the Birthday Girl and the JED foundation at the Paramount Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Birthday Girl is a birthday apparel and lifestyle brand that was established by Mary J. Blige & her protégé, Starshell, who lost her sister to suicide at the age of 14.  The efforts of Birthday Girl are combined with JED foundation and the Love is Louder movement with the goal of breaking the stigma attached to mental and emotional illness such as depression, anxiety and body image issues.

The event was held to raise awareness to the mission and programs of Birthday Girl, and the celebrate life movement. Attendees enjoyed cocktails compliments of  Birthday Cake Wines and Ciroc, and had photos taken in an interactive photobooth.

Perhaps most poignant was when Birthday Girl Founder Starshell addressed attendees with the story of her personal tragedy, and encouraged the audience to share their own stories. One by one guests shared emotional anecdotes to a crowd full of strangers about losing loved ones and learning to celebrate life.

Guests also had the opportunity to shop Birthday Girl apparel available at the event – a portion every sale funds suicide prevention programs. To learn more about the organization click here.

America Ferrera looked amazing as she arrived outside the ITV Studios. Here’s how you can copy her look. But, it you don’t want to make the celebrity splurge, I also provided some options that incorporate the same pattern (black polka dots against red) that will be much friendlier on your wallet.

STEAL HER LOOK

For $498.00 (on sale by the way, it retails for $995), you too can own a blouse straight from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring-Summer collection. It features a round collar and 3/4 length sleeves.

DOLCE & GABBANA Blouse - Spring-Summer Collection: $498.00

DOLCE & GABBANA Blouse – Spring-Summer Collection: $498.00

BE INSPIRED BY HER LOOK

Not all of us can afford to spend $500 just on one shirt. Just because America rocked an expensive blouse, doesn’t mean you can’t draw inspiration from her look to cater it in a way that works for you –  make the black polka dots on red look work for you without breaking the bank with one of these options.

Je vous aime Cymbeline 2014 Bridal Collection

Hadda (left) and Hane (right)

The recent Couture New York Bridal Fashion Week, held at the Hilton hotel in New York City, was home to many beautiful wedding gowns this season. But, amongst the sea of chiffon, the collection that stood out the most to me was Je vous aime by Cymbeline. The European company debuted its 2014 collection featuring regal gowns delicately constructed by hand with intricate lace detailing and embroidered bodices. Whether you’re preparing to walk down the aisle or just fantasizing about it, the collection, which evokes the spirit of French romanticism, features options that appeal to every woman. Here are some of my top picks.

The Timeless Beauty
The traditional bride will love the simple elegance of dresses like Hadda and Hane (shown below). The soft, romantic ball gowns with large skirts have a lightweight, airy appearance, while still looking luxurious and feminine.

The Vintage Princess
For the bride that wants to feel regal and channel the classic Grace Kelly look with a sheer bateau neckline and a blossoming skirt, dresses like Hippie and Himalya offer a modern twist on Kelly’s timeless look. Cymbeline also offers numerous hand-made wedding boleros and cover-ups that can be purchased separately to achieve a similar look.

The Seductress
The evocative sheer corset bodices and dramatic tulle flounces featured in dresses Holly and Hirma will be appealing for the fashion-forward bride that wants to turn heads and feel sexy on her wedding day.

The Simple Bride
Not all weddings call for extravagant gowns. Some brides opt for more simplistic looks on their big day and dresses such as Hermione and Hera are perfect for these no-fuss wives-to-be. Perfect for a beach or outdoor wedding, the delicate fabric on these lightweight dresses offer a graceful and romantic wedding look.
