Happy Birthday to Lily and Brooke! Lily (above) is simultaneously an avid video gamer and a connoisseur of fine wines.  Don't I have fascinating  friends? She is wearing a dress I made up, inspired by her fabulous taste in feminine silhouettes that usually feature a tiny waist and gorgeous full skirt. She really does have fabulous taste, she's Italian after all. And here is Brooke! She's wearing my very loose interpretation of an Alexander McQueen maxi dress with a belt and large geod ring - a staple of Brooke's jewelry collection. She's a California hipster living the dream in San Fransisco. So naturally, she is toting a fedora and wearing her signature aviators. Happy Birthday to you both, Love you!
