My Saturday was packed like a beehive, y’all.
I woke up early and had a driving lesson from my racer friend Danny Bopp, then I went to Brewery Artwalk near downtown Los Angeles to check out some local art and visit my friend Lincoln, who is a fantastic photographer, and then I came home and had a gourmet burger for dinner cooked by my friend and roommate Rob (that’s him in the photo with me), and then I had to rush and get ready for a girl’s night out in Hollywood.
WHAT I WORE:
1970s Falling Confetti Dress
WHERE I WORE IT:
Brewery Artwalk is near downtown Los Angeles, and only happens twice a year, in the spring and in autumn. We were invited by my friend Lincoln, who lives at the Brewery. My husband Jordan, myself, and Rob loved walking around, wandering in and out of art spaces. Our favorite were these amazing light sculptures modeled after sea creatures and one incredible two-headed dragon. These photos don’t really do the sculptures justice—they were very calming and interesting in person.
I thought I’d be uncomfortable all day, because the fabric is fairly thick polyester, but this dress is so cute I decided to wear it anyway. However, it turned out to be perfect for keeping me warm as we walked around in the October air. It’s very fall/winter, and so classically vintage. As always, I love anything short, and this dress is actually very comfortable. My husband loved loved loved it on me, and kept trying to take photos of me in it. He’s so cute.
WHAT I WORE:
1970s Helmut Jumpsuit
WHAT AMBER WORE:
Her own 1960s yellow lace dress, 1940s Bone Rose Clip-Ons
WHAT ERIN WORE:
1970s Sweet Artifact Dress
WHERE WE WORE IT:
Harvard & Stone
After returning home from the Brewery Artwalk, I had a fast dinner, and then ran over to Amber’s to get ready to go out with our friends Emmeli and Erin. We met up at Erin’s place, played with her kitty, had drinks, and then headed over to Harvard & Stone.
Erin had spontaneously invited us all to go out in Hollywood, and she suggested that we all wear vintage. We were half good, half evil—Emmeli and I were in dark colors; Amber and Erin were in light. Amber looked like Jackie O with her hair pulled back, her rose clip-ons, and her sophisticated yellow lace. Emmeli looked like a little blonde baby doll in her mini dress topped off with the pussycat bow, and I felt like some Helmut Newton figure in my bold black jumpsuit. Erin herself wore one of my TRV favorites: a white tribal mini dress with an amazing shape. We all looked different, and all very vintage. We kept getting compliments at the lounge.
Speaking of the lounge, Harvard & Stone is such a great place. I really love the energy, bartenders, music, crowd, and dancers there. Plus it’s just a beautiful-looking place. The DJ was amazing, and the live band made my heart swell when they played three of my favorite songs in a row: “Why Don’t We Do it in the Road?”, “Rumble”, and “Shakin’ All Over”. I had a blast. Then we went back to Erin’s for late-night snacks and girl talk.
I knew I’d like wearing this jumpsuit, but I had no idea I’d adore it. It’s so so so comfortable, and somehow manages to still look chic. You can add lots of different things to it for different looks (belts, jackets, something underneath, shoes), and it really is just so breezy and light. It’s amazing. I’m in love.
Such a nice Saturday. Let’s do it all over next week.
