Thirty. Again.

My family took me out to dinner to celebrate my birthday.

Dinner was delicious, and everyone got nicely buzzed.

Dessert was Sprinkles cupcakes.

I special requested Sprinkles. I needed to know what all the hoopla was about. I've heard about these magical little morsels for years. I used to laugh and point at people waiting in a hundred person line around the block all for a damn cupcake.

Well now I understand.

Sprinkles, you slay me with your buttercream and moist cakey goodness. Seriously. The best frosting I have ever tasted. I want to live in a vat of that frosting.

Before I go, I also wanted to share what I wore to dinner, because I love this dress! It's Thakoon for Target. I snagged it when they brought back the GO International Designer Collective awhile back.

Any other Sprinkles lovers out there? And, yes, I gained five pounds after my weekend of fun. It was worth it.


  1. I'm determined to try sprinkles sometime soon.

    I love that dress! I heard of Thakoon when he made a brief appearance in the documentary The September Issue. I need to look up that Target line!

  2. you look beautiful! glad you enjoyed your bday

  3. You once again prove that high fashion doesn't have to leave you broke. :) Lovely birthday party! :)

  4. Happy birthday (again)! I agree---Sprinkles are amazing! Worth the hype :)

  5. Happy Birthday! I still need to try Sprinkles cupcakes - they just came to NYC!

  6. I love Sprinkles. When I was in CA in the fall my friend and I did a "cupcake crawl" and tried a bunch of places around LA. It was so fun. I blogged about it! Oh and Happy Birthday!

  7. Aww love the cupcakes! I just ordered that dress! It looks great on you!

    Chic 'n Cheap Living

  8. On my next trek to CA I will be trying a Sprinkles cupcake. I want to know what the hoopla is all about, too.
    And of course I love the dress!

  9. I've never had it, but I'm dying for some. Frosting is a serious weakness for me. Happy 30th! You're looking fabulous as always.

  10. ohhh sprinkles. love their cake, love their buttercream, love their simplicity! they make my favorite cupcake (brown sugar cinnamon) and all flavors are just so delicious. so glad you tried them and love them! what a tasty birthday treat.

    ps great outfit again. you always have such great style.

  11. Sprinkles was our wedding "cake" so you already know how I feel about them. :)
    Great dress!

  12. Oh my goodness, I'm totally loving your outfit! So cute. And I had my very first Sprinkles cupcake in April - it was a lovely experience!

  13. YUM and happy late birthday girl!!!

  14. Happy Happy again, hon. You look so pretty and I'm loving the dress/boots. It's already in the 90s here, so no more boot weather for me (sadface). The sprinkles cuppies look divine - I've never tried the real deal, only the mix. Super jeal you got a whole box!!
