Downtown Dining: Clifton's Cafeteria

Downtown Dining: Clifton’s Cafeteria

This is a picture of Ray Harryhausen speaking at my college, when I was still just a wide-eyed art school kid in the Bay Area. (Okay, tired-eyed. That school kicked my ass. Because I actually worked my ass off.) Ray Harryhausen, THE father of stop-motion animation. As in, he’s legendary. Of course, being that we were...
Los Angeles, I'm Yours

Los Angeles, I’m Yours

Bad things always happen to me in Hollywood. Belligerent drunks harassing me at dive bars. Canadian women rear-ending my car at a stop light. A red stop light. I still braved the trip out to catch Poketo’s Los Angeles I’m Yours show at Space 15 Twenty last Saturday. It was a conglomeration of flea market...
Romance and realism: Phillip Lim at LACMA

Romance and realism: Phillip Lim at LACMA

“The less you put on the page, the more you leave to the imagination.” – Phillip Lim Such was my favorite quote of many from one of my fave fashion designers, Phillip Lim, who spoke at the LACMA yesterday. I love the effortlessness and ease of his pieces that still come across as stylish and sophisticated –...
DTLA Wedding at the Cornfield

DTLA Wedding at the Cornfield

When a colleague mentioned her sister was having “a 24-hour wedding”, starting with a public mass art installation at the beach and ending with a ceremony at my favorite downtown park, I was very intrigued. And apparently, so was the New York Times, as they featured their wedding from last summer. The wedding celebration kicked...
DTLA Love: The Soloist

DTLA Love: The Soloist

Finally got around to watching The Soloist, now out on DVD, last weekend. I first read about Nathaniel Ayers (played by Jamie Foxx) and his story written by columnist Steve Lopez (played by Robert Downey Jr.) when it appeared in the LA Times a few years back, and was excited to hear that they were making...
DTLA Love: 500 Days of Summer

DTLA Love: 500 Days of Summer

OMG, I so want to watch 500 Days of Summer, coming out today and starring Angelenos Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the ever-so-lovely Zooey Deschanel, and even more so after finding out that downtown Los Angeles is the backdrop for the story. Yes, downtown has been used in probably every other commercial, television show, and movie you see, and...
Love is in the air

Love is in the air

This has well made the blog rounds already, but I can’t help but mention this fab wedding dress from local LA designers Anzevino & Florence, currently sold (sold out?) at Revolve. Wedding dress styles have been kind of eh lately (yeah, I look at them, shut up), but THIS – all the tulle!! All that...
Viva Vena Cava

Viva Vena Cava

Did you stop by the Gap for the Alexander Wang / Vena Cava collab pieces already? Vena Cava is one of my favorite designers, and the gals behind the line are originally from the Los Angeles area. They seem to approach designing their line like true craftsmen, borrowing from any and all sources, their thought...
