los angeles, part 1

We've been home for almost a week now and I think I'm finally back to feeling normal with sleep schedules and all that mumbo jumbo! I've been laying around like a slug all week (staring at the computer screen and not actually doing anything) but, I just bought two little presents for myself on etsy (a new sundress and a pair of gold velvet hair combs) so, a blog update is in order as well!

There's so much to say about LA I don't even know where to start! We ate so well and the shopping was A+ !! Jennifer sent me the most amazing shopping list of all her favorite shops in the city, and I think it made the trip 100x better!

My favorite of all the stores was Flounce. The owner's collection is perfectly curated; filled with 40's rayon dresses, full skirts, and pretty tops from the 50's... I ended up finding a 1950's cotton coy fish bathing suit/romper type thing - it's the exact cut and material I've been searching and searching, and there's an adorable matching skirt! The romper is too big in the chest, but I'm not giving up on it just yet. I think I'm going to take it to a seamstress to have it fixed up correctly, because I know I don't have the skills to mess with all the darting and boning! But - the skirt is going onto etsy!!



It was so hot the entire weekend. On Saturday I ended up buying that little yellow dress and changed in the bathroom of a taco restaurant because I just couldn't take it anymore (I decided to wear jeans... which is a rarity, never-mind in a heat wave!) It's much shorter than I'm used to, but I ended up wearing it all weekend!!
