Food, Fashion and Fun Downtown...

Spent a lovely afternoon adventure downtown, with my dear friend Amy of A Sunny Day in LA.

First was lunch at Church and State... my first time there!

Lunch at Church & State
I enjoyed the Tart Flambee with caramelized onions, gruyere and lardons (with lovely olives and bread to start).

Crustacean Carnage
The carnage from Amy's Seafood Bourride begged for a pic...

Absinthe Ritual

Next... we were off to FIDM for their Emmy costume display and the Alice in Wonderland exhibit.

Fashion Museum Fun

Reflected at FIDM
No picture taking allowed inside... but nothing to stop me from taking a fashionable reflection pic!

We then hit Goodwill, but nothing called to me.

So we wandered a bit here and there... experiencing the downtown vibe, when I came across this...

Downtown 70's Glamour
This sign has clearly been in use since the 70's. Oh, if only it were for sale!!!
I'd love to see what the clientele looks like, but the two lovely ladies who work there were just off to the side, chatting and watching the passers-by.
1970's Hispanic Glamour... Si! Si! Si!

I finished the day with Rocky Road ice cream from the Grand Central Market, but gobbled it too quickly to take any photos. I'm sure you understand...

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
