West Side Story

{Vintage dress and purse, J. Crew wedges, Sam Moon earrings, gifted bangle, Jane Hollinger Bracelet, Chanel lipstick in Rebelle}
{shop similar dress}
Wearing what is probably my favorite vintage find ever, this 1940's minidress. For some reason, the print and silhouette completely remind me of the Puerto Rican vibe of West Side Story.






I'm currently working my way through one of my summer resolutions--to try 10 new Los Angeles restaurants. On this particular evening, we dined at #3, La Loteria Mexican Grill. So far we've also tried out Cha Cha Chicken (Venice)--the best Carribean food ever--and The Belmont (West Hollywood) whose Mint Teajito is the best drink I've ever had. All three places are must-visits! 


My weekend, besides trying out two new restaurants, consisted of taking the leap from my blackberry to an iphone (the verdict: I'm obsessed), shopping with my dad for some cool new duds on father's day, taking some much-needed naps, and seeing Beginners, which I loved. 

How was your weekend?

  5. How adorable are you?! Your dress really does have the sassy vibe of one of the gals from West Side Story, and I love the way you've styled it with big ol' earrings and simple wedges. I'm beyond glad I stumbled across your blog today and am looking forward to future posts. <3
