I love discovering new and unique dress designers like the one I’m wearing above. Autumn Adeigbo designs colorful and fashion forward clothing. A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Autumn is dedicated to supporting female owned production companies in the US and providing global artisans with meaningful jobs and fair wages. See below from some of her beautiful dresses.
Yesterday my daughter and I ventured downtown, first stop was the jewelry mart and then the Arts District. Our plan was to have lunch at La Cha Cha Cha but we quickly realized they were not open for lunch. We checked out Manuela’s Menu (super charming spot) but ultimately ended up at Cafe Gratitude. We roamed around and popped into the Hauser & Wirth building along with House of Woo (lots of cute dresses, tops, and sweats). A fun way to spend an afternoon if you haven’t been to the Arts District in awhile.
Now onto A.L.C. (above dress) which has several printed dresses that I love this season. The cotton poplin fabric is a bit structured yet breathable and comfy. It’s been a popular item with several of my clients that I have helped with post covid wardrobe refreshes. See below for some of my favorites.
Yesterday I stopped by the Rosewood Miramar hotel to have lunch at the Revere Room with a friend and check out the Dior pop-up. Not only did I fall in love with a pair of raspberry Dway Slides and a Mini Dior Book Tote but the hot pink toile wallpaper and lime green toile couches were cute as can be! It gave me some serious interior design envy! If you’re in the area it’s worth checking out along with a drive down the main drag of Summerland (which has some cute shops).
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I hosted a Mediterranean dinner in my backyard over the weekend. I wanted to share how I made this simple and easy table setting.
Flowers – I went to Trader Joes’s and got Silver Dollar Eucalyptus branches and fuchsia daisies. I lined the table with greenery and placed the daisies in all different size vases and spaced them out on the table. Lastly, I added four candles down the table.
Above Outfit – Dress Banjanan (similar here, here, and here)
For appetizers I made mini boards with feta, grape leaves, kalamata olives, lavash chips, cherry tomatoes, truffle marcona almonds, and figs. I also picked up some really good organic wines that we enjoyed tasting.
Yesterday I went to Abbot Kinney to pick up a new pair of Birkenstocks (got the cognac) and also stopped by the new Christy Dawn store. The store is so charming, spacious (compared to the Lincoln space), and beautifully merchandized. It’s stocked with sustainable dresses, tops, and denim. Check out my highlights from yesterday’s store visit below.
Restaurant Update – Over the weekend I had an amazing dinner at Felix. It’s been awhile since I’ve been there and the food is still excellent! I also went to Cerveteca which is a casual taco stand on Venice Blvd that serves up homemade tortillas and salsas (salmon tacos are amazing!).
