a day in LA

My friend Alex and I spent the entire day in downtown LA yesterday. The day started with us driving around the same block about 3 times because our GPS apparently thought it was still in NY. Whenever we travel to new places we use the site urbanspoon for rankings of best restaurants in the city, and a place called Starry Kitchen was on top of the list. It was exactly this “talk-of-the-town” establishment that we sacrificed our morning looking for and after we finally found it, they were just closing. But the staff of the restaurant was so nice that they just gave us two main courses of free to-go food, which was delicious; not a bad way to be welcomed to a new city. The rest of the day mostly involved walking, stopping to take pictures and eat a taco, and then continue walking. Apparently there isn’t all that much to do in downtown LA but it was still fun. I couldn’t get those 2 Pac lyrics out of my head, “California knows how to party (knows how to party).”

What I’m wearing:

  • Cotton maxi dress by “Tt”
  • 3 handcuff bangles by “b-side by ken & dana” (last seen in May 27’10)
  • Chunky chain ring by “Luc Kieffer” (last seen in May 22’10)
  • Grosi gathered sac by “Malababa” (in brown)
  • Leather platforms by “Marciano” (last seen in Apr. 22’10)
  • Belt
  • Aviator sunglasses by “Gucci”

  1. Hi, just wanted to say “Thanks” for the nice words about us… and sorry it took you guys so long to find us. Glad you enjoyed the food, and also got some great shots too. If you're in the neighborhood again during your visit, please do stop by. We're actually open for Dinners on Thurs+Fri (6-9p).

    And yeah, not too much to do in DTLA.. at least in our part (the Financial District).

    Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your trip here, and thanks again!

    Xoxo,

    Team SK

    1. Wow. It's so great that you found my blog and the post too – you guys are good! The food really was delish. We didn't get a chance to come back to the downtown (financial district) area but the next time I'm in the LA I'll definitely pop in again (lol, during open hours this time).
      Thank you again guys,
      LOVE LIDA
