Melrose Ave <3

I’ll be going to LA again next week and I’m so excited to share with you what we’ll get up to there.  But first, I thought I’d share some tips, outfits, and fun from the last time I was there this fall!  It’ll get me stoked this week (plus, help me get through one more week of long study days) and it’ll give you some ideas for your next Cali getaway.  Love how easy it is to get to LA from Vancouver, the flights are always cheap and you can usually fly direct!  You’re in the Cali sun in the same amount of time as it takes to drive to Whistler haha.  First post is about one of my fave places to shop (more like browse) in LA: Melrose Avenue.  They have so many of my favorite drool worthy brands (Alice and Olivia – my go-to for dresses, Rag & Bone, Marc Jacobs…the list goes on), not to mention some of my favorite places to grab coffee or tea (Alfred Coffee and Alfred Tea Room anyone?).  Last time I was there, I discovered a new store to fall in love with: Cutler and Gross.  If you wear glasses, you need to get your hands on a pair of Cutler and Gross frames.  They have SO many dope designs to choose from.  I wear glasses, especially when I’m studying or working, so finding a pair I feel cute in is key.  Essex know how I feel about wearing glasses and decided to get me a pair I would want to wear all the time and feel great in (best boyfriend award, as always :)).  I found the PERFECT light purple/grey frames that are little oversize and am loving them.  It’s an especially cool store because they only have a few locations in the world (LA, New York, London, and Toronto), so you get really premium service and care for each and every frame.  The store interior is super chic, too.  Cruising along Melrose Ave and then Sunset Blvd always makes me feel some sort of way…especially when you drive by classic establishments like the Whisky à Go Go where the likes of The Byrds, The Doors, The Mothers of Invention, and so many sixties legends performed.  Wish I could travel back in time for a day to experience the Sunset Strip fifty years ago.  On that note, time to get more work done.  Happy spectacle shopping babeskillets, Tita xx
