lindsey came to visit on friday, and after a drunken night of taco stands and lackluster pool parties- we successfully made it out alive in order to enjoy our PERFECT saturday afternoon. we started with urth cafe downtown (is anyone there NOT pretty? it's silly.)
following that, we ventured to VIRGO, also tucked into the heart of downtown in the fashion district. we were immediately enamored not only by the store's decor, but i could swear i've seen their clothing selection at some point in my dreams. perfectly reconstructed vintage, perfect local designs, the coolest (and definitely most eclectic) collection of jewelry, and to top it all off- the owner is an incredibly rad and down-to-earth chick. it is a MUST SEE for all los angelenos or visitors of this fine city. i plan on going back for a cut-out dress that i'm still daydreaming about two days later.
after lindsey's departure, i continued this perfect saturday with my friend michelle at the alcove- a whimsical little cafe in los feliz where the dessert is comparable to heaven itself. we feasted on a fruit tart surrounded by trees and in oversized chartreuse chairs that looked as though they were taken directly from a scene in alice in wonderland. following was a walk down franklin to hit up our favorite vintage shop in the neighborhood, squaresville. a pair of printed velvet leggings later, we were hungry again and off to sushi in silverlake. a little whiskey, an episode of lost, and sleep. my day was complete and it was perfect.
hope everyone had an equally enjoyable weekend.
if you're bored on this lovely sunday, you should check out the sleepwalker listings, as they'll be ended in just a couple days.
