{outfit} Birthdays, Brunch and Bargains!

I wore this to my sort-of birthday brunch with Lydia and Christine this past weekend.  They were so kind and each brought me a present! Christine gave me an ADORABLE elephant necklace which I promptly put on and Lydia gave me an Anthropologie dress I had seen at a thrift store months ago and mentioned in this post.  Unfortunately the necklace broke when I was at my aunt's house, which was unfortunate. :(

After brunch we headed to one of our favorite shopping destinations - Coco's! They were having a 50% off dresses sale and luckily I found 2 great dresses. One that had no brand, which I bought for $10 and THEN I got the ultimate score - a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress for $34!

I'm finally wearing my new-to-me Chanel skirt that I bought a couple months ago. It is a weird grey/purple color but I think it's more purple than grey. And be ready to see a lot of this sweater again this year.  I wore it to death last Fall/Winter and this one will be the same.  I wore it twice in one weekend so you'll see another outfit with it shortly. Check out my adorable new owl coin purse! My sister got one a couple years ago at a Renaissance Fair and I had been jealous ever since. Imagine my surprise when she gave me a purple one for my birthday this year!
