Two weeks later and we are still recovering from a trip so unbelievably perfect we're not even sure it was real. From a business class upgrade, to a desert road trip to an encounter with the SILVER FOX himself, Mr. John Slatterly, a.k.a. Roger Sterling (guys, he said "hi" to me!!!!!), the entire thing was a blissful, magical dream.
Not to mention the whole reason we were down there, a successful Fall '13 buying trip! In our spare time we strolled the boardwalks and canals of Venice, drove through the Hollywood Hills and soaked up the laid back vibe of Silverlake. The trip was capped off with a picture-perfect lookbook shoot by the beach, which only made getting on the plane at the end of the day that much harder.
We came home energized, rejuvinated, and so excited to show you our new finds, some of which will be arriving in the next few weeks! And when Toronto weather is bleak and grey, we will look back with love on the perfect day spent driving through the desert with the windows down and Tom Petty on the stereo, under the bluest skies we've ever seen...
