Today is my Mom's Birthday and the coat I'm wearing is actually her's however she bought it years ago at Bloomingdales because Burberry was going to stop making this classic coat and she still has never worn it so I decided that this Burberry coat should see the day of light for the first time and might as well make it today on her birthday.

I'm so jealous! can I drive to crystal lake and steal that coat? ^.^ I live in Chicago :P and the drive would be worth it haha
love the look
Alexander James
you live in chi-town!!?? no way...crazy. i wish i lived there if i were to live anywhere in illinois. lol CL is like an hour away. the jacket is extremely warm and chic. idk why my mom has never worn it. it's literally been in the Bloomy's garment bag since she's bought it so ive decided to steal it for myself. I'm obsessed with Burberry so i'll wear it for sure.

i looove you :) haha xD
awesome, just one question, how do you do your hair?
Alexander James
haha thanks! when its wet i just blow dry it upward and i use my hand to kinda push it up so i'm creating the shape that i want and then i take Aquage(that's the brand) Transforming Paste and put in my hair and then after i've got it how i want i put a little hairspray...takes like 5 min to do the whole thing...pretty easy.
