jacket Pins & Needles [old] // dress Gap // boots Calvin Klein [Picked up at DSW. I searched high & low and can't find them online, but here is a similar pair] // necklace Forever21 [old, similar]
This outfit was the perfect look for Saturday night in LA. We snapped these photos in the garden at our hotel [The Hollywood Roosevelt] and then headed out on the town- quite literally. We met up with friends [who happened to be staying at THE COOLEST Airbnb place] before going to the art show. It's very likely I was the only person there who wasn't an extremely talented artist, but I'm pretty used to being mediocre so I still had a great time. Afterwards, Tim and I did "date-night, LA edition" and went to Bottega Louie. It was even better than I could have dreamed! I ordered a box of macarons to go and carried them around like they were my most prized possession. What can I say? I wanted them for breakfast the next day, and am pleased to say they survived the night. We ended up at The Dresden [of Swingers fame] and I am pretty sure I had the total Hollywood experience. Full disclosure... it was a wonderful night, of course- but SF still takes 1st as the best city in California.
I realize now that I probably should say something about the clothes. ;) The jacket & boots are total basics, but the dress takes the cake. It is made of a thick sweatshirt material, so it won't blow up if it's windy. It's also fairly warm [for a dress] so I totally recommend it for winter! The only downside is the sleeves are a little short for my long arms [I'm 5'7 and in a size small]. However, it looks great with the sleeves rolled up so I'm still obsessed. It looks like it's currently sold out online- but Gap ALWAYS restocks items and it will likely be available again within a few days.
Don't forget, tomorrow I'll be at the Forever 21 Bay Street Grand Opening. Stop by for small bites, snacks, and 10% off. PLUS, I'll be sharing my favorite Forever 21 finds! Who will I see there?
