Revolve Clothing Grand Opening Party

Revolve Clothing opened their first store on Melrose Avenue on August 21st. Read here for the scoop from the LA Times.

Fashion Friend calls to invite me to a sneak preview. He thinks that the open bar will entice me. Little does he know he sold me when he first spoke the words party and clothes in the same sentence. Although admittedly, I was very happy after 4 Melrose Lime-light cocktails (Absolut Acai/Pomegranate/Blueberry with Sprite and a splash of pineapple juice). Yum-my.

The store is a closet full of sophistication with pricetags ranging from a t-shirt at $59 to a leather jacket at $1500. And if you're a local, you can spy and order clothes online, then try them on at the store the next day. I could probably get used to that.

Back to the party, there were many-a-fashion-goer with an eye-catching heel. In the spirit of being incognito, I refrained from taking pictures. However, as I am somewhat of a paparazzi by LA upbringing, I do regret not snapping pix of all the wonderful shoes trapsing around the store that night.

The LBD was a popular wardrobe choice of the night. As much as I love color, black never seems to fail because of its reputation to be sexy, smart, and slimming. Plus, you get more eyeballs to your 5" Jimmy Choo's or Christian Louboutin's. Sometimes your shoes deserve a little attention.

Overall, it was a good scene with a guest appearance by Gossip Girl, Kristen Bell or maybe better recognized as Veronica Mars or for her role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

a side of birthday

Tomorrow is my birthday. This year all I plan to do is eat my way through it. Not in any depressive way - I just love food! So I'm planning a little birthday dinner with my east-to-west coast family at Luna Park then a dinner at Mortons on the weekend. They are currently offering a summer special of steak and seafood for 2 at only $99 - so my girl pal and I who share birthdays one day apart are taking advantage. Did I mention that the chocolate cake is included as well?

Also on the menu is girls night out - Crown Bar to start and Kitchen 24 to top off the festivities. My stylista sidekick and I frequent K24 afterhours way too frequently. We go to people watch and for the Garden Benedict (highly recommend). It's a chill hollywood hipster scene with a DJ spinning upbeat tunes.

So, I'd like to order alot of food and love with a side of birthday please?

I like the sound of that.

Be well,

Sometimes it's hard to put the pen to the paper. The ideas are there. The words are there too. Tangible thoughts, however, the ones that make sense of the words and ideas are harder to transfer from your brain, to your fingers, to a piece of paper. Your mind makes the story sound so compelling yet upon attempts to share it with other human beings, renders itself disjointed. It's just so very complicated. But I'm breaking out and finding inspiration, in no inspiration.

Some days you'll get fashion, other days you'll get style, but most days you'll just get me.

I hope this means that I'll be publishing daily. I also hope this means you'll be checking in on me daily too.

Sincerely Yours,
