New at Crew

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I stopped by Playa Runway over the weekend. It’s a cute shopping area similar to Platform in Culver City. They have a Farmer’s Market on Saturday, and a cool market place called Free Market. Several chic boutiques and restaurants Alchemy Works, County Line Florals, Teressa Foglia, Loqui (love!), Jeni’s Ice Creams, and Bull & Butterfly (can’t wait to try!). Saturday evening we had dinner at Golden Bull in Santa Monica Canyon. The new patio strung with twinkle lights is a great addition to this casual and cozy neighborhood restaurant. Now onto all the cute new stuff that J. Crew has in store now.
