A FABB Sendoff

Day two of Lucky FABB consisted only of a networking brunch on the terrace of the SLS on Saturday morning.  We got to eat a delicious spread put on by the hotel (I am obsessed with their yogurt) and gab with our new and old friends and then they gave us the ridiculous and now infamous, LuckyFABB gift bag.  I also got a chance to spend some time chatting with Lucky's new editor-in-chief and LuckyFABB hostess, Eva Chen.  She was warm, friendly, and so engaged in the conference.  It was lots of fun!
After the brunch, my husband and I went up to the pool because I had checked it out earlier and he wanted to see it, too.  We had a quick drink, and ran into Coco Rocha again, but didn't ask her for photos again because I already had one and I'm sure that she was dreading it. It must be hard to never be able to enjoy the environment because everyone wants your attention. We just said hello and moved on to our own chairs and had our drink.

Afterwards, I dumped out all the goodies from the Kate Spade Saturday gift bag and used it as a tote to head to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the La Brea Tar Pits, and the surrounding area. One thing I didn't count on was that because my pants were basically rayon, the canvas bag kept rubbing against one area on my leg and ruined them.  While I hadn't featured them in my blog before, this was a pair of pants that I bought in a Mazatlan market for $10 over the New Year break and I'd worn them for New Year's Eve in Mazatlan, for Mr. Fantastic's birthday and to a happy hour already.  While I was sad to toss them, I have to admit that I've gotten my money's worth from them.

I was really happy to see that the Diane Von Furstenberg exhibit, Journey of a Dress, was still open at LACMA. A DvF wrap dress is definitely an item that I want hanging in my closet and just because I haven't found the perfect one, doesn't mean that I can't dream.  I loved the way the exhibit was set up and it made me realize just how timeless her wrap dresses really are.  My favorite one was a black sequined, full length, wrap gown pictured below.

Any other cool designer exhibits to check out?


  1. Can you believe I still haven't gone to see the DVF exhibit! Glad you got to enjoy it!!

  2. You need to go! We had the John Paul Gaultier exhibit here in Dallas a couple of years ago and I went to see it like 6 times. I really enjoy the exhibits because you get so much of the history behind the clothes and for me it really stokes a much deeper appreciation of the craftmanship that goes into the garments we wear. My husband doesn't like me visiting the exhibits because then I add everything to my "wish list." Right now, I am obsessed with all DvF wrap dresses. LOL


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
