Enjoying a little Banksy while downtown, feeling like a girl on a swing, the whole world on my feet.
Waking up to palm trees (and detox smoothies from the Earth Bar), brainstorming 24/7, speaking Italian any German at the same time, enjoying myself way too much, loving every Tinseltown moment and imagining this would last forever.
Cause it could.

Remember this one?
I had actually forgotten about it, until this happened.
Recreate this look by wearing a pair of paisley or floral printed pants, a black crop top, a belt with silver accents, YSL caged heels if you have them, if not, why not try these in black or silver and a pair of classic Ray Bans.
A tan helps, too. ;)
As in verb: lounging, rooftop (like we’re bringing ’88 back), 360 view of downtown LA, with the taste of an exotic fruit smoothie in my mouth and an appetite for free falling on my mind.
Inviting sun beds, Los Angeleno attitude and a hip crowd. Sold!

I’ve waited a long time for this.
Doing time in Hollywood (West mostly) is full of enchanted surprises, vibrant purple jacarandas, street art in every little corner, the smell of deep fried goodness but most of all the endless possibility of doing what you really desire.
I’ve got palm trees in my eyes, endorphins flowing through my body and the most intense love affair with this place.
LA is a trap.

Downtown LA is starting to grow on me especially when visits to the Last Bookstore and Bottega Louie are included. Feeling like a hot (81 Fahrenheit) mess and not even coconut water can do anything for me at this point.
I’m high on imagery, low on sugar (well not really, had a delicious double chocolate scone at Alfreds’ a little while ago) and generally infatuated.

There is another world but it is inside this one and it’s full of rainbow backgrounds, rust and stardust and the worlds best hot dogs.
You breathe in the magic, you lay down on the grass sipping coconut water, on Sundays you go to the flea market and your heart beats faster when the neon lights turn on. And if you’re not hypnotised enough you wonder if it’s all a dream.
You just don’t leave this place.

Downtown LA is really FULL of surprises. Take this Kim West mural for example. You can’t but just fall in love with it.
Although I don’t even know anymore, I’m kind of in love with everything and everyone at this point.
Hidden gems everywhere, from the more obvious street style graffitis to cool 20 guest restaurants and dimly lit rooftop patios. The days are pleasingly innocent but the nights.. the nights are pure magic, shining through neon lights.
Life in color, high on sunshine, dreams do come true.

I might have stumbled upon the Verameat store by accident but it was a case of pure coup de foudre with those amazing jewellery pieces.
My obsession started with the pepperoni pizza necklace (it’s not leaving my neck anytime soon) -pizza is a girls best friend after all- and went over the hill with off beat stacks of rings (I mean more is more), the naked woman’s body talisman and my very Greek and pretty amazing headpiece. Which I will be sporting 24/7 by the way.
And I’m sure it ain’t stopping there (the vertebrae “keeping it together” charm is definitely next).
Handcrafted, made of recycled silver and pure 14 K gold, the Verameat designs are truly unique and quintessentially edgy. Exactly what you need.
