Robertson Blvd.

Playing: Shot at the Night-The Killers
Rereading: Light Boxes by Shane Jones
I kind of got over the cupcake trend just like I got over the frozen yogurt and red velvet trends fairly quickly, but that doesn't mean I'm going to pass up a chance to try Georgetown Cupcakes. I actually stumbled by the Los Angeles location on accident, while I was out shopping. Pictured above are the Double Butterscotch, Strawberry, Chocolate Ganache, and Peanut Butter Chocolate cupcakes. Honestly, all of them were delicious and I usually dislike chocolate cupcakes,but these are worth trying. The Double Butterscotch was my favorite with piece of butterscotch embedded into the bottom.
Along the same road, Robertson Blvd., there's a Kartell store. Unfortunately, since it was Sunday, it was not open, but I enjoyed window shopping just because everything was so fun to look at. Ideally, I would love to fill my house with fun furniture and this store definitely feeds into my lucite obsession. It also relates back to my interest in Jeff Koons' art.
Another store that was closed, but I wished it was open was H. Lorenzo. The window displays had the most perfect outfits that mixed classic styles with modern elements. I like how the sweet dress in the middle is off set by the bright red clutch and the feminine trumpet hem on the skirt to the left is off set by an edgier top and necklace. This store housed a lot of different brands from KTZ to Comme des Garcons to Forme Depression, which are all difficult brands to find.
I have been a part of National Charity League for almost seven years now and at the end of NCL, they give us a chance to be a part of what they call "presents." Presents is actually just a debutante ball, but I will not be doing presents this year because the dress rules are excessively strict. To quote the dress rules, NCL presents "values conformity." I want to be a part of a debutante ball, but not at the price of conformity and having to wear either an ugly or boring dress. Every dress I have ever wanted for presents was vetoed by the dress rules because you're not allowed to do a non A-line dress and it cannot have lace or be backless. For someone like me, I prefer doing straight up and down gowns because A-line dresses with petticoats make me look shorter than I already am. These dresses from Les Habitudes would have been perfect for me, but I know that all of them will be rejected.And with that rant, I leave all you lovely readers to do my Econ homework.

  1. Audrey, like you... if I had no say over the dress, I would not be a part of it... I know what looks good on me, I don't trust other people :)

    1. I'm so glad someone agrees with me. Some of my friends think I'm overreacting, while my dad told me to just get a boring dress approved and show up on the day of the event in whatever dress I want. However, that would probably get me in trouble. D:

    1. Well, you can never have too many shoes!

      This was my first time to Robertson and I really enjoyed it, even though a lot of the stores were closed by the time I got there.

  4. I know their cupcakes are amazing, I think they may have started in Seattle though not sure. But we get cupcakes in at my job all the time and I have had these soooo good.

    1. Really? :o

      I just assumed they started out in Georgetown because of the name. Have you ever tried their Lemon Berry flavor? I really want to go back for that flavor.

    1. No, I haven't. I've seen photos of their furniture online, so seeing it in real life was fun!

  6. Cupcake stores never dissapoint, but I too have never really been into these food trends. I do REALLY like to have frozen yoghurt in the summer as it's way better than shaved ice or ice cream in my opinion ^^ xo

    1. There are a ton of great ice cream options, where I live, along with shaved ice and frozen yogurt, so it's difficult to decide where to go for a cold dessert.

  9. One of my favorite type of dresses are A-line
    dresses :P bummer that Kartell shop was
    closed! They really got nice chairs, picturing
    in my head to be my diningchairs someday..
    And I can't believe you don't like chocolate
    cupcakes! Xx

    1. A-line dresses can look nice, but seeing as I'm so short, adding a petticoat under the gown would just make me look overweight and short. D:

      I would love to have some of those Kartell chairs for my future home.

      I typically find chocolate cupcakes to be disappointing, but I do like chocolate in general.
