Hi my dear friends! I am back, physically, to this cold, rainy East Coast town I call home, but my mind is still filled with California sunshine. 🙂 In the next few posts, I will share with you outfits I worn during my trip west. Some still wearable around this time of the year, like the one today, some might have to wait until winter break to see the day light again. 😀
My impression of Rodeo Drive was not the most favorable, thanks to the movie “Pretty Woman”, so I skipped the whole Beverly Hills area last time I was in LA. Now I am a bona fide fashionista, it is my undeniable duty to pay homage to one of America’s most fashionable streets, not to mention the opportunity of reality TV celebrity siting, RHBH, any one?
In the movie “Legally Blond II”, there was a scene at the beginning: Elle Wood dressed in all bright pink, puppy in tote, marching up the Capitol steps against a sea of black suits. If that were the West Coast impression of capital style, I thought to myself, it is about time to returned the favor. ;D So, I, a DC style blogger, done a vibrant python print “suite” and some shinny heels, marched on the sidewalks of Rodeo Drive, in broad daylight.
The effect, as you might have visioned, was quite astonishing. There were tourists taking my photos as I was posing for my own camera, especially when I leaned against this super fancy car parked outside of a man’s wear boutique, and when I stood beneath the road sign. “She dresses so outrageously…she must be a celebrity…let’s take a picture!” I could almost hear them in their heads.
Good news was, no sales associate asked me to leave the store after I stepped in. I guess I was wearing the right shoes. 😀
A big “Thank You” to my friend E for taking all the photos, you are the best!
Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!
