L.A stylinn'

 Derek is our sartorial ambassador of culture in L.A. He directs us to all the coolest restaurants and killer shops. He has got IMMENSE style and is always impeccably dressed. He has worked at Fred Segal's on Melrose for 10 years, impressive huh, and you know when it's NOT Derek's day off work 'cause the speakers are blasting killer music and the energy is high :) As he said,  "I wouldn't wanna work here if I wasn't here". LEGEND.

 Back at the beloved Chateau Marmont. :D I have been coming here for the last 10 years and it is practically my favourite place on earth. Not only because it is UBER cool, but more importantly it is a stones throw from the most immense shops EVER.
 Okay, our first sunny morning we drove to 'The Inn Of The Seventh Ray' for brunch. It was like a fairy tale wedding reception. There was a fountain in the middle of it all, que my first photo opportunity of the trip :)

 So anyways, after a great brunch we stumbled upon 'Hidden Treasure', how apt. It is this awesome vintage store, filled with amazing items from the 20's to the 70s's. Of course I had a blast trying on all the goodies, before I found two blouses and a radical skort{shorts and skirt}

Outfit- Hidden Treasue

 The next day, and i'm just getting warmed up here, we visted a shop called 'Opening Ceremony'. It is a bit like Dover Street Market, as it is a mix of all the top and new designers. A girl could spend hours and hours in here. :) Here, I got my Vivienne Westwood/Melissa sandals. The look and smell like candy! YUM :)

I was served by two very upbeat L.A locals who were super helpful and cool. Thanks guys!

 Later that afternoon, I took a trip to 'Retrospecs' on Melrose. It is the best opticians around! They sell original frames from the 30's right through to present day. Hans knew exactly what I wanted when I described what I was looking for; vintage, 50's and BIG :) After an epic trying on session we ended up getting the ones I first tried on, mmm, no surprise there, huh. 

Me and Hans

More adventures from the USA to come, so keep tuned, folks! :)
