A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join high-end retailer, Farfetch, & some of LA’s most chic influencers for a day of exploring LA’s best summer spots.
I wanted to share with y’all the curated summer in LA itinerary, because I definitely found a few new places to feature on my LA guide, and I figured y’all would dig the hotspots chosen by this highly-esteemed, fashion-forward company.
Ya know it’s going to be good ( & highly boujee ) when Farfetch is involved, LOL.
To start the day, I met up with a few girls from Farfetch, a fab photographer & four other LA-based influencers at luxury boutique Just One Eye in Hollywood. Just One Eye is a fashion girl’s DREAM, stocking everything from Gucci to Stella McCartney to Baja East.
Lucky for me, I had a perfect-fit pair of Stella McCartney skinnies bestowed to me upon my arrival. For the day’s first activity, we were each unleashed upon Just One Eye to style an outfit to shoot at the location.
I, obviously, chose this unreal, sporty Gucci Duchesse Blouse to pair with my black skinnies. It’s not every day that someone says, “here, please wear this $2,500 top real fast.” I mean…. ya don’t have to twist my arm.
A cute lil’ note: I was already wearing my Mom’s baby Gucci watch from the 90’s ( one of my Dad’s first gifts to her! ), so I felt very Gucci in this look. Buttt, also— I’m pretty sure I kind of stole this watch from her, so let’s keep this between us.
Mom, if you’re reading this, I’m not sorry. LOL.

After our mini shoot at Just One Eye, we piled into chic black Escalades & made our way to high tea at Petit Ermitage, a boutique hotel in West Hollywood. I was forced to remove that beautiful Gucci top from my body after leaving Just One Eye, which was depressing AF.
Until we meet again, you beautiful betch.
Anyways, rooftop high tea was the perfect midday chillout of sorts. We sipped on some fancy tea, drank some champs, & snacked on the most glorious of sandwiches & mini desserts ( plus french fries, specially requested by yours truly ).
I loved getting to know a little more about some of my fellow LA influencers: Pretty Little Fawn, Honey and Silk, The Editorialist LA, & Garcon a La Mode over alllll the goodies Petit Ermitage had to offer, including the BEAUTIFUL afternoon view of LA.
I’m starting to think afternoon tea is a once-a-week must for this gal ( @ Mom, if you’re still reading this, can you send me some $$ to support my new weekly vice? ).

Post-tea, we met up with a few more local influencers & Farfetch guys/gals at the Marciano Art Museum, a museum I had, admittedly, never heard of before. Lucky for me ( again ) two of my insta-friends, Love & Loathing LA and Mel Rod Style were amongst the influencers we joined at the museum.
Farfetch ensured that we had the museum to ourselves to peruse privately ( bc ~fancy~ ).
It was the perfect way to calmly walk off high tea’s french fry/champagne combo. Praiiiiiise.
After the Marciano Art Museum, we headed to Mama Shelter for a beautiful rooftop dinner with MANY more bloggers/influencers. Makeup touchups were provided on-site by Glamsquad, and they were V necessary for this beebus ( half my face had melted off by this point, TBH ).
My best beebuses, Molly & Kristen, joined the crew for dinner. I may or may not have requested a seat change to sit by my besties, because I missed them all day ( though I would never tell them that, so everyone act cool ).
Cocktails were had. Food was eaten. More cocktails were had.
A cringe-worthy country music sing-a-long concert may or may not have occurred in Molly’s car following this feast. Again, I cannot confirm or deny this.
Overall, this was one the fancier days I’ve spent in Los Angeles since moving here last year. Farfetch really knows their way around summer in LA, and I am SO grateful to have been able to tag along.
I’ll be adding lots more to this list over the course of summer, as I’m using it as a reason to actual leave my house/detach from my computer every once in awhile. Small adventures are tiiiiiiiiiight.
Anyone have any local recommendations I need to try/do/experience/whatever?
Lemme know! Hope y’all loved this lil’ recap. xx
