Just A Brooklyn Girl in LA: Some Things Will Never Change
Some of you may know this already, but I'm obsessed with Los Angeles right now! I even think I want to move there, maybe. It may just be the palm trees and the warm weather, but I want in! Ironically, while staying in LA for a week, I lived my life almost the same as I do in Brooklyn. Treating my 7 days there like an extremely long weekend in Williamsburg, I went to the movies twice, went to brunch about 4 times, went to dinner almost the same amount of times, went out to the club twice, went hiking once, and went to the museum once. I think the only things I don't do in Williamsburg are go hiking and to the museum. Based on this, it seems like I could easily transition into a Los Angeleno. Did I say that right?
Everyone keeps telling me that there is sooo much more to do in LA besides eating and drinking and taking pictures. I just think because it was so cold in NYC, I was not really in the mood for beachy, summery activities. I just wasn't mentally there (besides that one day I went hiking). And despite the bright and vibrant personalities in LA, I was only in the mood to wear black and/or white....mostly black. If you've been following me and my blog for a while, you know that I love wearing black, all different shapes and textures and types of black. It's essentially the core of minimalist style.
I mean....you can take the girl from the east coast, but you can't....you know. So my outfit went like this...
This dress, from Third Form, I could not wait to wear! I'm obsessed with it! The relaxed sexiness, the thigh high slit, the pleated texture, makes me want to live in this dress. When I was getting dressed to window-shop in Beverly Hills, I was torn between "wear with heels" or "wear with sneakers".As I am known to do, I opted for the "luxe-dress-with-sneakers" look. Because, of course, comfort-over-everything. To make this look a little more me, a little odd, but so Brooklyn, I wore my minimal leather tie choker from Poppy Chain Designs. When I first got this choker, I wasn't sure how I was going to pull it off. I tried it on with so many outfits before this one. But you know, if there is a Will there's a way. :) And voila, I was ready to hang out in LA.
