 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.

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