Walking In L.A., Project Updates and Other News


No one walks in Los Angeles...except me... all over the Melrose Avenue design district a couple of days ago.  I have a post in the works about the gorgeous, brand new fabrics I saw but first, a public service announcement....



I covered a lot of ground in these Gap espadrilles on sale.  Real leather.  I got mine for around $25 in the store.  I saw a lady on Melrose in the Chanel version similar to these  Saint Laurent espadrilles.

Anway, for a fraction of the cost...I think I should get another pair in cognac.


 Julie's kitchen in So. Cal. is coming together...

                                                                                                           How about this "before" photo?

The shelves will be a bit darker...

 


Here is a new kitchen nook being built in No. Cal.  It  will be finished this week using...
these fabrics from Perennials.

If you are looking for a movie recommendation, we saw "Their Finest" last week in one of those theaters with the deluxe, first class, reclining type seats (which ruins you for sitting in regular people seats).

Has anyone seen "Paris Can Wait?"  What did you think?...I might go this weekend.

Howard is away, so last night I binge watched four episodes of "Big Little Lies" on HBO.  I should be able to finish the season this weekend!

Maybe I should get an extra pair in black, too?  

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  1. I say if they fit, are cute and price point friendly buy one pair in each color and an extra for when these wear out. I have very narrow feet, would they work for narrow feet? Love the remodels!!

  4. I love your espadrilles. I just checked and they have my size so placed an order. Hope they fit! The kitchen project is looking great. Love the flooring, can you tell me who isn't by? Have seen any good movies lately so I'm glad to have your recommendation!
    Bon weekend!

  9. The shoes are darling. And I hadn't heard of The Finest but the trailer looks right up my alley! Did you like it? And I refuse to go to the movies unless I can be in those cushy, reclining chairs. You're right...they've spoiled me for anything else.

  10. You are so right about the fact that no one walks in LA. But if you're going to walk there is no better place to do it than down Melrose. Thanks for the movie recommendations, I'm overdue for a good film. And I love your espadrilles!

  12. That kitchen is looking amazing! You should have it professionally photographed. Love it!

  13. I can't wait to see the final versions of those kitchens.
    Your shoes are cute. People here live in espadrilles, but the canvas kind. They wear them like slides, with the backs folded down.

  14. Julie's kitchen is looking amazing! And the Gap espadrilles---love them, but they don't make them big enough for my size 10.5 foot and the smallest is a 6---too big for Madeline. Let this be our biggest problem!! I would love to walk all over LA with you.
