I love living in L.A. There’s always something interesting to do/devour/experience.
Take last weekend, for example. A few friends and I attended a 10th anniversary live read of the film Juno supporting Planned Parenthood, performed by an all-star, all-female cast at the Ace Hotel downtown. Original cast members Ellen Page and Jennifer Garner were on the announced line-up, but the rest of the cast would be made up of surprise guests. The surprises included Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kristen Wiig and Tig Notaro.
Only in L.A.
Events like these often pop up last minute, or take place immediately after work. Which is why I’m increasingly finding myself in need of versatile pieces that easily transition from day to night, work to play, and beach to city.
That’s why I love pieces like this Yumi Kim cold-shoulder minidress. It’s a perfect foundation piece. With a straw hat and flat strappy sandals, it’s casual enough for Saturday brunch or a stroll along the beach. Lose the hat, grab a leather jacket and step into a pair of lace-up booties, and it’s ready for evening.
