Fashion District Bound!
Whew, what an exciting day today was! A girlfriend of mine and I set out early this morning for downtown LA, specifically to look at sparkly things! Along the way we stopped in Burbank at this lovely store, It’s a Wrap, where they sell items from movie & TV sets! I’ve been to the Hollywood location before.
I only bought two things, this Adrianna Papell dress ($8)
And this vintage poodle skirt ($4)
My girlfriend found a pair of Stuart Weitzman heels for $3.40!!! (The whole store was 20% or more off) They need new jewels on the toe, but we remedied that at the crystal shops in downtown LA.
I did find a few verrrry tempting items. One was too large (but a stunning DKNY skirt, black & gold brocade), and the other two skirts, well, I wasn’t willing to shell out their asking price. Which I feel was a tad high. But, defiantly a must-stop if you are in the Los Angeles area.
Here was my outfit today, all laid out last night:
Bold? Yes, but why not? Here’s it on:
Cardigan: Target, little girls’ section
Skirt: Banana Republic (summer ’12)
Shoes: Strassed Manolo Blahnik flats
Handbag: Kate Spade
Jewelry: Omega watch & vintage necklace
The shoes I actually ended up wearing:
As much as I adore my multi-colored Manolos, my feet refused to cooperate. (Naught feet!!) It worked out, as I love my Jimmy Choo flats for lots of walking.
After It’s a Wrap, we headed into downtown, and got to meet someone special, Joey from Redo My Shoe which was a real treat! He has an amazing personality, and is so real and down to earth. I felt an instant affinity for him in our emails, and I’m just so excited he IS all that and a bag of vegan veggies in person!
We of course picked up sparkly things (hello?!), Light Siam for a pair of crazy shoes I’m doing for my boss (these will be amazing, let me tell you!!!), and some trims to make bib necklaces:
I have to say though, the true highlight of my day (sorry Joey!!!!) was Freebirds World Burrito. I haven’t had one since being in Texas a few years back. My tummy is so happy, it was amazing.
Now off to play with my new “toys”!
Until next time,
