Got up early Thursday morning and headed downtown LA. I scheduled an appointment with Claire Pettibone- an absolutely beautiful bridal store I had been meaning to visit. I was met with REAL life turtles in the pond outside! I mean only in LA. There was an amazing selection of accessories, lace, silk, embellished dresses. Complete fairytale magic. Needless to say I got my wedding dress here in the flagship store! Total YES moment!
On our way out of LA we got to see the Hollywood hills. There were lots of people off to hike the hills. We were too stuffed from our sushi lunch to consider a trek! Just sat back and enjoyed the architecture and design of the houses along the foot of the Hollywood hills.
Next day I took a trip to the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. I saw some beautiful images that will inspire my next collection. The colours, the tones and textures are shockingly beautiful. This picture reminds me of some Prada prints of the moment!
