Restoration Hardware Store Opening on Melrose 10/22/14

A DAY IN THE LYFE, SO LAFiona LeahyComment

I know what you’re thinking…Restoration Hardware is a furniture store. But let me tell ya, this isn’t an ordinary furniture store. This place is absolutely unreal. It’s the kind of place you dream of having slumber parties in even though you’re in your mid-twenties. Like I'm 87.3% positive that Grey Gatsby is living somewhere in there. Each room has a unique look. There are huge windows that lead into balconies that overlook all of West LA. I didn’t make it to the top level because there was extra security because apparently Paris Hilton and her gal pals were up there (lol idk). This three story massive store is located on Melrose Ave across the street from Urth Café and next door to Kitson. The interior decorations are elegant and cutting-edge all at the same time. The store opening included wine tasting from their very own cellar in-store and live music. If you’re ever in the Melrose District this is a must-see destination. Restoration Hardware is taking over.

I am wearing a black dress by James Perse (my go-to LBD), fur coat from Rehab Clothing (its faux fur, don't chu worry), and shoes from one of my favorite Aussie brands Senso. Wearing the lip color Heroine from Mac Cosmetics. It’s a matte and it makes me feel like a diva and an alien in all the best ways. You might need it too. P.S. Babe in matching fur with me is my BFF/roommate, Birdie Lyons.

Take Me to Wildfox! Wildfox Couture Flagship Store Grand Opening 10/16/14

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

To this day, I’ve never read a company’s mission statement that I’m more in love with than the one for Wildfox Couture. “For dreamers, for lovers, for skinny dippers, for barefoot explorers, for late night chocolate eaters, for those who believe in love and themselves.” Wildfox is a whimsical dream; I have always been a fan of their quirky screen tees, legendary ad campaigns and watching their swim show at Miami Fashion Week.

I am SO excited for Wildfox to have their own store and it is conveniently located in the most charming blush colored bungalow located in Sunset Plaza on Sunset Boulevard. I attended the grand opening party of the flagship store last Thursday night, and to my prior knowledge I know that Wildfox parties don’t disappoint.

The party included a sushi bar, complimentary manicures, lavish floral arrangements, a ping-pong table and of course an ice cream truck covered in Swarovski crystals. Red carpet guests included Alessandra Ambrosio (who I haven’t seen since I attended her birthday earlier this year, lol) and Scott Disick (who kindly patted me on the back and said “excuse me”, another lol).

If you were to ask me what my favorite thing about Wildfox is, I would have to say their denim. The Marissa Boyfriend Jeans actually make my heart skip a beat, and the Marianne skinnies are the perfect compliment to any oversized tee. The denim designer, Michelle Siwy, is a dear friend of mine and her creations get more desirable by the minute. She even made overalls! I promise they’re cute.

I’m also so in love with the swim collection. Probably the cutest one pieces, like ever. Roam into the store and see for yourself. My words don’t do justice to how dreamy this place is. And I can’t think of any other adjectives that can describe the store other than dreamy, that’s why I’m so repetitive. Go visit Wildfox, it’s absolutely breathtaking!
