An Abbott Kinney day in one of my favorite silhouettes – crop top, vintage Levi’s that are fitted and loose in all the right places, heels (these are a super old Zara purchase! satin mules feel very minimal princess), tiny bits of gold jewelry, and a bag that updates everything just right. This Balenciaga Jacquard lock shoulder bag is a study in texture and scale play with its utilitarian fabrication, thick chain strap, and intertwined oversized scarf to make it as satisfyingly chunky to gaze at as it is plush on the shoulder. The color scheme it offers surprisingly goes with everything which is good cause it hasn’t left my side since arrival. Loving the new thing and just getting on with your life with that little upgrade is such a fun feeling. And in the spiring of getting on with stuff, I put together a list of my current favorite random spots in LA ✨ Bardonna Larchmont 139 N Larchmont Boulevard A menu and environment that makes sense for every level of hunger and thirst. I love going in for an iced latte or a giant salad and finding a tucked away spot in what feels like a secret back patio. Beverly Hills Juice 8382 Beverly Boulevard Even in a city with juice options at every fifth step, BHJ’s carrot coconut wins cause I just can’t find it anywhere else. So good smooth or blended into one of their signature smoothies. Marvin 8114 Beverly Boulevard Unassuming but elevated and with so much personality, Marvin is one of my favorite places to have a glass of wine and catch up with friends. Magpies Softserve 2660 Griffith Park Boulevard Corn almond (vegan!) soft serve. Something to slightly build your day around. PYT 400 South Main Street Cause vegetarian doesn’t have to lack in presentation. PYT does all the go-tos but with more style. And cocktails that are kind of insane.

A small ode to a very particular type of shoe. As charming as they are classic, Maryjane shoes have been a favorite silhouette of mine since I associated them more with piano recitals and makeshift tea parties in the garden. I remember ruffled socks and colorful barrettes frequently comprising the remainder of the look. The polish and properness of a black patent pair makes me nostalgic for those times (well one more than the other) but is also highly useful for my day to day looks in and around LA and the aesthetic demands those looks have. When combined with more casual looks, a Maryjane is playful and just the right amount of sweet (almost cloyingly). They’re just as perfect with denim as they are with a silk dress and fit seamlessly into my wardrobe. I’ve amassed a small arsenal of them at varying heights and textures and I think I’ve reached the point where I have a pair for every look I could put together. So I feel like I speak with authority when declaring these Valentino Garavani Tango pumps that I ordered via Farfetch the ultimate with its delicate ankle strap and barely there cut that dips way low at the sides and fastens high up on the ankle (also achingly cute are the lower heeled red suede pair and the blush star studded version that I’ve been eyeing for what feels like a really long amount of time). I wore them with my holy grail high waisted Levi’s shorts, my highly cherished vintage Chanel backpack, my AYAI padlock necklace that I haven’t taken off in weeks, and summer-friendly off the shoulder gingham to create my ideal DTLA studio to sunset drinks to dinner for two kind of look. Shot midday, mid-heat wave, and mid-July in and around my Hollywood Hills neighborhood. The post high gloss appeared first on fashiontoast.
