Gap cropped khaki jacket; F21 gray tee; UO straight leg boyfriend jeans; Remi and Reid studded purse; my lovely sister + snow
The iconic engagement photo spot created by Chris Burden at LACMA. Despite the numerous drive-bys and backdrop for pre-wedding couples, this was my first time actually stepping foot onto the light installation itself. The sunset and lighting had set itself up for some downtime outdoor photos which slowly led us to pull over at LACMA after some tasty dumplings at Myung Dong Kyoja on Wilshire Blvd. I love the fit of these boyfriend jeans and how they were white pants dyed gray, which gives it an interesting look at the seams, especially when I sit or bend. Further, I am unamused and not a slight bit pleased with the unexpected rainfall yesterday. But I guess it beats the snow my sister is experiencing in NY.

LF Stores cropped "say panda" t-shirt; Remi and Reid studded bucket bag; F21 suspender trousers; UO cardigan; Ash wedge tennis shoes (knock-offs)
A pretty uneventful weekend. After having the bf substitute my ancient computer for a faster usable one, I headed for an oil change that had been put off for a few weeks. Then headed over to Americana which was only a few blocks from there. We had some tasty yet not-surprisingly overpriced crepes and I was excited to see the close to ready new Sephora...although disappointed that I won't be there this Friday for the grand opening due to class to see Josie Maran and obtain a gift card with a potential $100 in it. The cropped t-shirt was a cute find from LF stores... c'mon, a panda with a camera. I have been waiting for these shoes for the past few weeks to come in the mail. These Ash wedges have been sold out everywhere. Lucky for me, I found some exquisite knock-offs on ebay obviously for a quarter of the price...despite the efforts I took in writing my law review paper on copyrighting fashion. But they're almost equally as pretty and comfortable. Sometimes, you just happily take what you can get.

Zara slouchy top; DIY cut off shorts; Jeffrey Campbell booties from LF Stores; Remi and Reid purse from LF Stores; Bracelet- gift from Brazil
After going to Les Pommettes blow-out bin sale, the fab weather prompted some walking along Robertson Blvd. Despite the numerous sales, I failed to find something that I really liked. My good ol' Jeffrey Campbell shoes were perfect for comfort (and complimented my new bracelet from Carol) and I just can't get over the style and color of this Remi and Reid purse. Anyway, what I did discover was my new favorite burger/sandwich/pizza place! It's called The Oaks Gourmet~ We had the old aged burger, Ultimate BLT, and goat cheese artichoke pizza! Seriously, it was delicious. I haven't found a place that so intimately chooses their cheeses to compliment all the other ingredients. What's more, their beer and wine collection was both intriguing and extensive (keeps the bf occupied while waiting for the food)... They even have a chilling station for your wine. With Coolhaus ice cream and Milk ice cream in their freezers and healthy juice shake options... this place will be frequented.
P.S. Check out a photo posted of my hair here. Why I am called a tourist is unbeknownst to me... I blame it either on the bf's unpinpointable accent or the incessant photo-taking along Robertson Blvd. Haha.
