sushi at the open door japanese izakaya

    salmon roll

    I'm going through some serious LA food withdrawals and these photos are not helping. Right before I left I finally got to try this little place in the valley called The Open Door in Monterey Park. We tried to go here the last time I was down but the place was so crowded that the wait would have been an hour! This time around we got here right when it opened and easily got a seat. 5-7 also happens to be their happy hour!! I wish I could describe how delicious everything was but all I can really do is show these photos and leave it to your imaginations. The highlights were definitely the salmon sashimi with a garlic citrus soy sauce and the, wait for it, TRUFFLE BUTTER edamame!

    If you're in the area, go to The Open Door for dinner! Even with a carafe of peach Chu-Hi it only came out to around $16 per person plus tip and tax. It's definitely not your traditional sushi place but worth a try if you're curious. The people there are extremely nice and the chef is super friendly!

    happy hour

Grey Investment Coat: Sophie Srej (IMG NY)



    Celine and Chloé may have popularized camel as The Fall/Winter color for the season, but while bouncing from Calvin Klein in New York to the likes of Prada and Chanel in Europe, Sophie proved that a grey neutral can do just as good as a job.

    (Seneca Rising Aurore Top, Paige Verdugo Jegging in Sapphire, Civico 9 Short Cowboy Boots)

    These jeans I got from Revolve are called 'jeggings' and although I am not a fan of the term 'jeggings' these jeans feel exactly how they should feel like: nice denim feel yet the comfortableness of a legging minus the wedgie. I always thought jeggings were super thin denim with that weird elastic waistband but these are just like jeans except it is so stretchy (still maintains its fit though even after an 8 hour wear)
    I wanted to dress up the jeans so I chose a feminine drapey top that I also got from Revolve.
    You'll definitely see me wearing these pieces more often.

    Paige Premium Denim Lou Lou Flare in Black Diamond and Hope tux blazer via Revolve Clothing, vintage silk shirt, Swedish Hasbeens

    Yes, I am wearing flares. Yes, I chopped off my hair. My first reaction? WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS SOONER? Cutting it was actually very last minute, my appointment was actually for a body wave perm but I opted out the day before. I've had my hair short for the past few days and have not had to do anything to it since it just magically dries like this. If you guys have been keeping up with my tweets, I've also been testing out these Paige flares that Revolve Clothing sent me as part of a series on denim collaborations between my blog and theirs. I really can't remember the last time I wore flared jeans... maybe it was in 8th grade? I'd actually been contemplating changing things up with flares but just couldn't bring myself to dive in and purchase a pair. Well hey, why not try now? I suppose I'm going through some strange phase where I'm experimenting with new styles and reinventing my image while still remaining true to what I already like.

    03-29-1003-29-10

    My final verdict? These jeans are great! They're formfitting like skinny jeans until they hit the knee and flare out without being too extreme. I've already worn them three times since I received them and will probably put them on again today! They're actually surprisingly comfortable, stretchy, and holy crap, look at my rear end. I have a butt! In the end, I'm glad I tried something new and I'll definitely continue to step outside the box and try styles that I don't usually go for.

    Certaines d'entre vous me demandent souvent des adresses, en voilà une juste à côté de Carnaby Street, à Londres. Mon t-shirt cosmo, par exemple, il vient de là ;)

Brick Lane.

    Je reviens tout juste de Leaunedonne city, là, alors tu vois, je suis trop jet-laggée, le mal de l'air (du train), si je raconte n'importe quoi NE T'INQUIETE PAS, c'est normal.

    Je commence pas vraiment par le début, mais plutôt par le milieu.
    Donc je reprends.

    LONDON CITY, jour neumbeur tou.


    Je peux résumer ça en une phrase : Brick Lane, c'est trop nul. Ouhlala tout est moche, ouhlala, rien à voir. J'ai tout claqué mon argent dans des trucs suuuuper moches, là tu vois, je retourne mes poches, y'a plus rien. PLUS RIEN. (je dis que tout est moche, pour essayer de relativiser, pour me dire que non, je n'aurais absolument pas eu besoin d'une Eurocard Mastercard Platinum Diamantum, tellement tout était trop canon bordel-sa-mè... je m'égare.)

    La suite, Marcel.


    Le truc du dessus, c'était un ENORME bâtiment avec que de la fripe, que de la fripe, que de la fripe, et des anglais sapés comme si c'était la fashion week. Et je dois avouer un truc, en moins de 24h, j'étais convertie. Oublié le chic parisien, faisons place à la folie londonienne, Adeline n'est plus, voici Madeline.
    J'ai donc décidé de rester dans ce délire là. C'est comme ça que (vous me voyez pas là de suite maintenant, évidemment) je me retrouve collants blancs, mini boots, t-shirt imprimé gorille pas très sympatique, headband Pocahontas à plumes et tête d'animal mort en fer autour du cou. Dit comme ça, ça fait peur. Non, JE fais peur tout court, mais je m'en fous.
    Bref, sinon, j'ai failli mourir un nombre incalculable de fois dans ce grand machin.




    (Dédicace à Thibault, 10 ans.)










    AH OUI.
    J'ai un gros faible pour les sacs à dos militaires. Depuis pas longtemps. Parce qu'après coup, Alexander, c'est pas SI moche que ça. (ça fait wiiiiiiild-moi-je-campe-dans-la-forêt-je-suis-une-ouf-je-mange-des-lapins-VIVANTS.) (Ne mangez pas de lapins, c'est trop mignon pour être tué.)




    Voilà, voilà.

    Et cadeau Bonux : mon humour super développé, rieeeen que pour vous :


    (pardon pour ce post hystérique, ça doit être ma playlist New Wave 80)

    Went thrifting with Annabel & Lulu awhile back and sweet Annabel managed to find this white shirt for me. It was super big with monstrous sleeves so I rolled the sleeves up and used safety pins to hold them in place. I actually use safety pins quite often because I believe in clothes that fit well and unfortunately cheap clothes I find at stores aren't the case and I'm too lazy to alter them myself. Oh, and I realized today that I don't own any white socks that don't have a nike logo on them. Must go buy white socks...
