So we’re staying at Yuka and Mia’s downtown loft for the first week, and almost moving further to the Fairfax and Hollywood area for our second week in Los Angeles. So far it’s been really good and we already met quite a couple of amazing people. The clothing stores are also way too good compared to Amsterdam! A little bit too great so I don’t really dare to go in anymore… Here’s a little overview of what we did, in pictures.

I was so happy to have finally found the Dolce Vita buckled ankle boots I have been searching for the entire last month! They really made my day even ten times as good. Prince was fun though it did take him two hours to start, and we’ve had such great lunches at the LA Café around the corner. Number A became my #1 shop in downtown LA and the Japanese food at Tenno Sushi is delicious and very affordable. A big thanks to Yuka for showing us around all the best shops in Little Tokyo and Hollywood, and taking us to some parties!

Oh, by the way, I cut and dyed my hair ;) Got very bored of it so needed a change! It’s still a little bit too yellow, though already a lot better compared to how it was right after I dyed it…
