Apart from the obvious that the reason I chose this title is because im wearing peacock details such as the wing feathers reinterpreted in purple metallic indian embroidery patches on the salmon shirt, the peacock print kimono, the purple shoes, and peacock rings:) I was imbibing some sort of oriental luxe in the look combining prints, color and metallics to create a clash of details.

This photo was taken a day after my birthday. I wore this ensemble because there was this supposed dinner with me and my sister to meet a friend of hers.

coincidentally the place where we were to have dinner was a japanese resto. Talk about looking like an owner of the resto because I was wearing a freaking kimono. Once we entered the room where there was the reservations under her name, I was instantly shocked to see that all of my closest friends were there holding a cake and greeting me a solid "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"!!!! I was so caught off guard because I wasnt expecting a surprise from any of them most of all from my sister who with all her incredible logistical skills planned the whole thing and took the challenge to make me feel super sepcial on my birthday. Thanks to my incredible sister and to my supportive friends. I love you all.

During dinner I wasnt being teased because they thught i knew about the surpise because I was so dressed up for the part of Japanese resto owner. We were laughing in unison.

This has been the coolest bday party ever in my life. And i thought all the greetings I got on my bday were already enough this came along and another surprise setup on my working desk at the office with cards greeting me well wishes from my officemates and colleagues. What a truly remarkable day!!!!!!!:)

photos of the party and the surprise notes from my officemates ill post in facebook

What I love about the title of the look (and the song of Katy Perry's funny vid) is that it reminds me how we should enjoy our life in every possible way:) That is how i approach fashion- something with a taste for fun and excitement:) Every bday I tell myself that I should learn to be more more brave. Be courageous to stnad up and be the the real me and not pretend to be somebody else.

Aha!I wonder if you've seen the parody video for that song which by the way is as glorious as this look?:P Well really it does have that Japanese street style essense to it (as do many of your looks) which I think is just brilliant coz to me the Japanese have one of the most genius style sense in the world. The details are killer here:I look closely at the purple spots on your shirt and realize they are lily pad shaped and am just blown away,then I realize they match your shoes.Oh dear Andre you never cease to amaze. And happy belated birthday you rare bird you!
