my friend Erik (who started one of my favorite brands of all time, Fuct) threw a surprise birthday party for his lady Emmelie and WOW...i don't even know where to begin. i thought my party was awesome but this was beyond. we already know they pull out all the stops with amazing cakes, like the one they had for their daughter Bella's 2nd birthday, but when this was unveiled there was a collective GASP and a moment of silence for its sheer epicness. Anvil would be proud.

suppppprrrrrrrise Emmelie!

yet another DIY Raquel (be forewarned - i plan on wearing these all damn summer!) + Yohji Yamamoto Doc Martens

and then THESE were brought out. FUCKING Rock of Love dude! Erik had made backstage passes a la Rock of Love for each one of us with our photos and names on them and everything.

and thennnnnnnnnnnnn. THE STRIPPER. who kicked off the show by putting all the passes around Emmelie's neck like she was fuckin Bret Michaels, with the theme song of Rock of Love blasting in the background. check out Reese in the background!

aaaaand here's where it starts getting waaay NSFW so i'll stop here.

we each got our respective passes at the end. now that's what you call a grown ass party favor!
