Reading: Manon Lescaut by Abbe Prevost
The Vivienne Westwood store was huge and I loved the range of products from casual clothing to dressy gowns. They had a wide selection of clothing for men too and even sold Westwood commemorative books, which I was tempted to buy. If I had all the money in the world, I'd choose her dresses for any dance I were to go to. The only unfortunate parts about the 8000's of Melrose Avenue is that their aren't many places to eat at along the stretch and that I was able to see the area in about two or three hours.
Since I was in the area anyways, I drove down to the Beverly Center on the hunt for lunch and grabbed a cheap, food court meal. The Beverly Center was extremely confusing to navigate. The first floor and top three floors are reserved for shopping and dining, while all the floors in between are strictly for parking. It's hard to get from place to place and for my first time there, I found it difficult to get anywhere I wanted to go. It took me half an hour just to find a place to eat, even though I could smell the food. It's also strange how the Beverly Center has stereotypical mall stores like Forever 21 and American Eagle Outfitters, but has high end designer clothing like D&G (pictured above) and Louis Vuitton too.
I bought a baggy, Marc by Marc Jacobs t-shirt that supports AIDs research along with a pair of earrings at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store and two wishbone necklaces, one for me and one for Jessy, at the Bookmarc store along with a bookmark from Bookmarc. At the Helmut Lang store, I grabbed a look book, since he has no other stores near me. The Helmut Lang store was gorgeous, but had too many employees. It felt like you were barging in on a cool kid gathering, where you were the only one not in fabulous head-to-toe Helmut Lang clothing.
Have you ever gone to a party or gathering inappropriately dressed?
