Candy Stripes on Rodeo

Over the summer, I purchased a couple dresses from Frances Valentine, which might just be one of my new favorite brands. This colorful candy striped dress is one of the two dresses I purchased; the other one being the floral dress I posted about several weeks ago. I wore this colorful striped dress to Beverly Hills in August to see the Louis Vuitton exhibit on their iconic trunks. (Ironically, they wanted me to check my Louis Vuitton bag at the coat check, to which I told them a definitive "no".) While this dress was purchased and worn in August, I definitely think the colors still work for fall. That's, at least, what I keep telling myself! Here in Los Angeles, it's cooling down to the 80s, so it's not quite sweater weather yet, but I have my fingers crossed that it's coming soon, because I have some cute fall outfits that I am just dying to feature here on my blog!

The last time I took photos at this location on Rodeo Drive was in the midst of the COVID, and most restaurants were shut down with very few people on the streets. While I'm very happy that everything is open and thriving here again, I must admit that I do somewhat miss the days of being able to go places without traffic and crowds of people. Here in L.A., unless you're in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, it seems, streets free from traffic and locations free from crowds are just a dream!
