You've got the love








It never ceases to amaze me how much fun I have with my theatre boos. Especially combined with the Fairfax Flea Market and Toast-done deal. That's where we trekked on Sunday-and I was on a mission. I have been on this mission for almost 3 years now. I needed to find the most perfect leopard coat I can find, that didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I must say though, people who work at the Flea Market have become major a-holes. They're rude, and price things way too high thinking they'll get you. But oooh no, sir-I will not be shelling out $200 for your FAUX fur jacket, even if it is stunning. I did end up finding this beautiful Aztec-looking necklace, which I immediately put on because I decided it looked good with my outfit. Didn't see anything else, so we left and had brunch...actually more like linner at that point. Toast is one of my faves. It's a little cheesy with all of the actors/casting directors/agents/etc...who eat there, but their food is amazing. Richie had the brilliant idea to want cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery afterward, so we walked the two blocks over there, and in this little shop called Polkadots & Moonbeams-I FOUND MY LEOPARD COAT! In my price range, and perfect as can be. Like Kristina says, "It's like the Fashion Gods (in my head, it's Coco Chanel) shined a light" and there it was waiting for me! I immediately put it on, and haven't taken it off since. Well, you know what I mean...I wore it for the rest of the day, until I went to bed. Haha! I cannot wait to pair it with lots of things this season. All in all, a very good day indeed.

That's great that you managed to find the leopard coat. I would love to see it! I've been looking for one for quite some time now but the search continues.
Nothing quite like spending time in good company. Love the Kimono you're wearing as well as your newly acquired necklace!
