Journey of a Dress
Diane Von Furstenberg
"An exhibition celebrating four decades of the dress that started it all"
January 11, 2014 - April 14,2014

6067 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA

Parking is $10 and available in the Pritzker parking garage on Sixth Street, just east of Fairfax Avenue. Additional parking available in the lot at Wilshire Boulevard and Spaulding Avenue.

This exhibition is quiet interesting, and quiet a sight for any art or fashion aficionado. This exhibit chronicles the famous designer over the years of her successful career, as well as houses a wide variety of artworks composed of Diane. The gallery is rather small, and is completely free to the public. If you do have a chance to visit before the exhibit leaves, go check it out.

You can not take a trip to LACMA and not take a picture with Chris Burden: Urban Light. This has single handedly become one of my favorite and most iconic public art works in Los Angeles County. The elegance of the lights at night, and their majesty throughout the day are unrivaled by any. There are normally tons of people photographing themselves throughout the lights at any given time.  

I was a bit pressed for time today, so i did not get the chance to go into LACMA, however keep in mind that LACMA does have free days to go in and visit the exhibits. Please call them to double check what are the prerequisites in order to receive a free tickets after 3p.m.

The next stop on my art filled Friday was Jacob Hashimoto's Gas Giant located at MOCA Pacific Design Center, which is located within the Pacific Design Center complex. If you are looking for something to take your breathe away, please visit this exhibition before it is gone June 8, 2014. The craftsmanship and the attention to detail are unparalleled.

The sights and tranquility of the exhibit truly allow someone to feel as though they are being lifted into a land of far far away. This instillation by Hashimoto truly allows the visitor to explore their own mind of creativity to attempt to make sense of all the madness that is going on. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this gallery, and I wish everyone could experience it. It's just one of those art exhibits that engulf you and allow you to forget about what's going on in the world for even just a little bit. Hashimoto does a brilliant job of infusing colors with colors, batters, and the play on textiles.

333 S. La Cienega Boulevard
Beverly Hills, California 90211

This place is quiet fascinating, and filled with history. It is a working research library, so if you do plan on visiting anything other than the lobby you will have to get a locker and turn in your photo i.d. If you happen to be in the area, and you mysteriously and miraculously find parking, check it out. It's very small and insignificant, but it was fun to say i was there.  

All this exploring worked up an appetite, and it being Friday, I can't eat due to Lent (I am catholic). We have passed by El Coyote Mexican Cafe several times, so we'd figure we'd give it a shot. 

7312 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

The food was edible. there was nothing that just made my taste buds tingle. I do however think that my dietary restrictions might have not allowed me to get a good first impression. Another thing is parking, it is a complete and utter hot ass mess. It's so difficult to find parking down Beverly Blvd., it makes you almost want to go home and not eat. I was expecting a bit more, but hopefully I'll be back and be able to have a good piece of meat.

If planning to visit, keep in mind that they do decide to do valet service, a service charge of $3.50 is required. 

Any questions about the restaurant, please visit their website or give them a call. 

After dinner, you must always leave room for dessert.

I am absolutely in love with this place, if you are in the area it's always great to just stop by and grab some delicious ice cream. I recommend this stop to anyone!!
