Miss B Reports on Los Angeles

A few more sights from around L.A...

Our hotels was just lovely. Very well done kitsch. We felt like quite the glam Beverly Hills hipsters. (Sorry no pics of the room because the energy saving bulbs weren't very camera friendly. Take a peek at their website if you're planning a trip.)

Loved the little tableau in this window- the slick white vessels and chandelier against the bold green tile and red door. (And ooh la la, there were so many happy succulents everywhere you looked!)
Lots of serious cases of house lust. All 1930's Spanish style bungalows and wild unruly gardens, bougainvillea covered stucco walls and burbling fountains. Wish Wish Wish.

Cool lanterns in the otherwise dull Beverly Center.

Katie and Marilyn.
I loved the champagne cork and his very tidy school boy handwriting. I'm thinking I need to watch Some Like it Hot again. (and again!)

Crinolines hanging outside a vintage shop on Third Avenue. I love the colors- they remind me of cotton candy. More on all the cool boutiques we visited to come. I'm already plotting another trip with E sometime soon.

Where are you hoping to getaway to this summer?

Ooh, I love "Some Like it Hot." If you find yourself in San Diego, you should check out the Hotel del Coronado---they shot exteriors of the movie there and it's just gorgeous.

Beautiful photos B! Is it too redundant to pine over having to miss such fun with my two most favorite gals!...Sigh...
