Postcards from the Coast

Just a quick shout out to my family and some grainy 'on-the-go' iPhone snaps, which do the trick of capturing my main L.A. interests this past while:

1) Dining at some great restaurants. For burgers, some love In-N-Out, but I'm a Bob's Big Boy girl.
1930s style blouse + skirt: Nudeedudee; shoes: Re-mix Anita shoes
2) Exploring all that Southern California has to offer! So far, lots of grand adventures, including two days at Disneyland.
Top: 1930s peasant blouse and 1930s striped beach bag; skirt: Nudeedudee; shoes: Re-mix Emily sandals

3) Dancing!  I've twirled and charleston-ed at the amazing Art Deco Cicada Club several times now, but there are other great places to go, like Joe's in Burbank.
1930s Velvet & Rayon Gown; shoes: Re-mix 'Ritz' silver heels

I've also been spending lots of time with great friends and have done some volunteering.  My cup runneth over!

Always a pleasure to visit California!!! I have quite the same picture with "Big Boy" in April and also went in Cicada to met Keely Smith... and went to Disneyland 4 years ago!!!!
Vintage lovers always end in the same places...

I have a peasant blouse just like the one in your second photo that was my grandmother's, and it's one of my favorite oldthings. Hoping you enjoyed LA-dventures!

I can never get enough your superbly styled, timelessly lovely outfits. Inspiring travel looks, dear gal - love that you were out on the west coast (albeit in a different country) recently (Cali and B.C. aren't that far apart after all).

Looks like you are having a blast. I want to try a Big Boy one day, obviously just for the Austin Powers connection! x
