"souls do not incarnate to fail"
Pictures courtesy of my awesome, kick-ass friend Veronica!
Thursday night was a blast! I spent it with some amazing, beautiful, stylish new friends... Becs, Mel, Nora and Patty Ann. Mel, Becs and I started off at Borders in Westwood for the Kelly Cutrone book signing. Kelly is a "I don't give an ish" type of woman with a strong sense of self. As if you couldn't tell from watching her on her show :P Anyway, it was more of a dialogue between her and her audience, which made her way more approachable than you'd imagine! Mel and Jazzi McG got to ask some questions and get some insight. I had to bounce early because I'd booked a table at Taste on Melrose as part of DineLA's Restaurant Week and Nora and Patty Ann were already there.
The food was great! I'd recommend it to anyone. The atmosphere is very LA -- laid back, dark, social, wine-y. I had the pear and pomegranate salad and the mahi mahi and broccolini in tomato sauce. Then I topped it all off with the Gala apple crisp. Yeah, I know you're drooling ;) So filling, but so worth it! Mel and Becs joined us after they got their books signed and we chatted, planned and took pictures.
I have to say, the best part about having this blog is getting to meet people with the same interests and passions as me. It's unfair to my boyfriend to always drag him out to random events or vintage shopping with me (though he is amazingly supportive about it!). I love how the online fashion community is about real people with real style and real personalities. This is like an open forum (somewhat) to talk and meet and get inspired. So thank you for that, ladies. I really look forward to our next outing!
