So I know I’ve mentioned a hundred times before that I’m like totally out in L.A right now!! Oh boy and does this place swing, what a great town. I’m staying with a beautiful friend out in Hollywood and will be gathering inspiration for SS ’12 frequenting the ridiculous number of AMAZING vintage clothes stores and frock shops. (insert excitement here) I’ve covered a lot of ground in my super short time of being out here and will do my best to keep you updated.
Yesterday I went to the Bettie Page store on Hollywood boulevard(p.s I cannot pronounce this word and have been mocked, some words just don’t lend themselves to a thick monotone Yorkshire accent haha) named after the iconic pin-up girl Bettie Page this store is amazing with loads of fabulous wiggle dresses, swing skirts, high-waisted shorts all ideal to achieve the ol’ pin up style. I shall be making serious notes on my ‘L.A BABEH’ page of the blog so you can read of my discoveries on there. I also took a seriously cheesy tour of celeb homes haha, I was like 1 metre from the playboy mansion, Simon Cowell’s house and Michael Jackson’s old stomping ground, some pretty swell homes around these parts I can tell ya.
To top off the most wonderful day we headed down to Playa Del Rey to see our old friends Lil Mo & The Dynaflos the best Doo Wop Band in the Land. The Dynaflos were rippin up Rusty’s Rhythm Club Wild moves, kickin’ tunes, fabulous people. WOW!xx
