Classic Flava: Ode to the Girls

 Last week, 3 women I love turned the page on another year. While I already gave my Mama a shoutout, I couldn't let the other two ladies' days pass me by without a little recognition. Not only have they put up with me and all my weirdness for years but they have done it with grace and humor. I adore them to bits. 
And since I can't display their personalities on le blog in the special way I experience them in real life; I decided to create an outfit for each which reflects their style and captures a little bit of their fire. Without further ado...

The Miranda.
Sultry. Up-beat. Peppy. Colorful. Vibrant. Evocative. Trendy. Eccentric.
Cause Miranda got flava' yes she do.

The Shanin.
Classic. Cozy. Sexy. Understated. Refined. Embellished. Feminine but not overtly girly. Aesthetic. 
Cause Shanin has a classic style that suits her to a 'T' (and she's always outfitted with plenty of accesories to help keep the perma-cold girl warm).

And I must say, I would be incredibly proud to rock either outfit (though Miranda, I would look like sh*t in yours). Love you both mucho, mucho!

Here's hoping your Monday is better than my boyfriend's parallel parking ;)

Creating an outfit is on of the best ideas I've seen to celebrate a birthday. I think I want people to do this for me on my next birthday.
Going to the games is always fun - even if it's 3am when we finally get home! Your football Tweets crack me up every weekend :)

Happy belated to your friends!
This has to be the one cutest post you have done, love the idea. (deff will be stealing it.) I wish I could dress like Miranda & pull it off.
I love those high-tops, I want pair of sneaker wedges.

OMG this has got to become a THING. Creating an outfit for your friends?? Highest honor--I love it! And how telling to see how other people see your style, if that makes sense . . . this is so awesome. Happy birthday to both these beauties, and to your mama!

Gah! You have so many gorgeous girlfriends, Caitlin! And I LOVE how you paid tribute to both of them via adorable ensembles (for the record, I'd say my style is more of a Shanin) - such a fabulous idea! :)

Happy, Happy belated Birthday to Miranda and Shanin! :)

This is such a sweet idea.. though I'd be scared sh*tless to ask my friends to do this for me.. I imagine a tourist tee paired with a tutu if they tried ( I swear, I'd never wear the two together!).

You are so lucky to have such amazing friends, hope they both had brilliant birthdays.

I love Shanin's style, probably because I am always freezing too! Happy Birthday to all of your girls!

And LOL about your BF's parallel parking. :)

Wow, Miranda sure holds nothing back, a rainbow would be jealous haha.

I love that you created outfits for them based on their personalities. What an awesome idea! I really think you can learn a lot about a person from the way that he or she dresses.
