Strolling around Downtown LA, a place full of hidden gems, vintage signs, cool little shops and amazing bottega cafes. Admiring the street art and the eye catching murals, you can’t but feel like a kid in a candy shop. It’s when you look up to the skyscrapers that you really know.
The NY vibe is evident here (#dtla) but with an eternal sunshine kind of feel. Way cooler, more relaxed, evidently carefree but with an equal amount of drive and determination (well, I am Team West Coast, there’s no denying this). Los Angelenos (locals and aspiring ones – just like myself) know what they want and how to get it.
This city is pure magic.
