Before The Big Night Out


The photos on my blog are mostly what you could call the “finished product”. Me completely ready out and about in the city. Unfortunately I usually don’t wake up looking that way. I thought it could be fun to share a post of the behind the scenes scrapbook of photos and everything that leads up to that point- the process, favorite products of mine, and a sneak peek look into my bathroom and bedroom. In celebration of Elizabeth Arden’s launch of their new fragrance, Untold, they’re celebrating with these “Untold in the City” stories, recognizing the intrigue of the modern woman and where the fragrance takes a woman around the city. So for my Untold story- preparing for a night out in my city, Hollywood, and where I might end up.

Some of my favorite spots in Hollywood: (make sure to do a little research because in the bars section for example some are very divey and some are a bit more classy)
Restaurants: Son of A Gun (seafood), The Little Door (french romantic), Terroni’s (italian), Eveleigh, Escuela Taqueria (tacos! and BYOB), Chateau Marmont (if you can get in), Goldie’s, Connie & Ted’s (oyster bar), Cecconi’s, Gjelina (Venice), Oscar’s Cerveteca (Venice), Soho House, Nobu (sushi)
Bars: Laurel Hardware, Churchills, Darkroom, Bar Marmont, Soho House, No Vacancy, The Pikey, Pearls, Rock & Rileys.
Clubs: Not much of the club type, but when 1OAK opens soon in West Hollywood it’s sure to be the best spot.

What I’m wearing:
Dress: fav black leather by Mlle Mademoiselle
Clutch: Valentino
Shoes: Valentino
Necklace: Lanvin
Robe: Victorias Secret
