caught up in the moment

I'm all about easy dressing lately and keeping a simple color palette. This knit dress is a staple in my summer uniform. I love the ribbed texture and the fact that it hugs all the right curves. Wore this last weekend when I stopped by Tattoo Mania on Sunset and got some new ink from Sean. I love his signature style, his penmanship is everything. I ended up with three new tattoos that day and plan on going back for more. Ink is very addicting I tell ya.

Projection LA

I'm probably the last person in LA, certainly the last blogger in LA, to check out Projection LA. My newsfeed was flooded with images of the place and I knew I had to check it out for myself. Projection LA is an art installation by Vincent Lamouroux, who painted the old Sunset Pacific hotel (better known as The Bates Hotel) in an opaque white limewash. It was definitely a sight to see. My only gripe was that the day we went to see it, it was overcast and gloomy, causing the installation to kind of blend in with the grey skies. Despite that, it was still a cool experience and I'm glad I had the chance to witness it before it's gone. Afterwards, Alex and I walked a block over to the Echo Park Craft Fair where we had the best quesadillas in the city. No joke, we devoured 5 of those babies in one sitting.

ps- Sooo happy I found this Nasty Gal bodysuit- a great alternative to the Givenchy one (swoon). I'm sorry I couldn't find a link to it online, they probably sold out, but hey, can you blame them?

the first bad man

Surprise! It's a black on black look yet again. Dressed super casual for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Had a little downtime for some light reading and lunch on Melrose with my roommate. I was totally giving off 'The Craft' vibes, and I'm not mad at all. It's probably because I just watched that movie few days prior. Augh how I wish being born on Halloween actually gave me witchy powers. Oh well, another lifetime perhaps?
