Here's the first round of photos from Los Angeles; as you can see I was off to a pretty good start. I picked up this leather blouse (!!!) from Out of the Closet just before leaving the bay. It's hot but so beautiful, and everyone wants to touch it (especially the drunks). I wore it our first night in LA to see Pierced Arrows in downtown. It was super loud, but somehow my girl Elisa and I were able to go off in a corner and catch up over beers. We finished it all off at the Brite Spot in Echo Park, where I am happy to report that the chicken tenders are judiciously coated in corn flakes and sliced almonds. It's the fanciest a chicken tender can get before you simply have to start calling it something else... seriously, I've been eating nothing but diner food all week. I have to find a pear.
