the best shot I could get of the iconic LAX letters outside of the airport // I really enjoyed driving up and down Sunset Boulevard, so much lovely shopping and eating out that I wanted to do // there's basically an American Apparel on every corner (not really, but it seemed like it)
this was a giant chair sculpture outside of the Pacific Design Center // this is the Pacific Design Center, where my company's showroom is located and where I walked to work while I was there // I loved this Missoni Home display I saw in the PCD
these are the display areas that I worked on designing/putting together and was lucky enough to get to actually install them myself!
I was basically obsessed with this French cafe, Le Pain Quotidien, located on Melrose Place. I had lunch here on the patio and enjoyed the view and the people watching.
my coworker and her daughter were kind enough to take me on a mini tour of the city. we went around downtown and up to a park to get a better view of the skyline.
we went to Chinatown and had some of the best Chinese food I've ever had at Yang Chow restaurant // we also drove around the Staples Center and Nokia Theater area, and apparently I was about a day late for the Hunger Games premiere, which I was less than thrilled that I missed // we also walked down Hollywood Boulevard and I got a pic with these two *ahem* interesting people.
Even though it was a quick trip, I loved everything about LA (minus the traffic). I can't wait until the next time I get to go back!
