so i’ve been talking non stop about what a wonderful weekend i had in la. it was truly wonderful. part of it was the amazing blogshop with bri and angela. i can’t say enough how great it was and how many fun, talented people i met.
but this post is for the avalon. it was such a treat to stay there. the hotel itself is gorgeous. designed by kelly weastler, the avalon is slightly retro and super chic. not only is it beautiful but everyone at the hotel from the consierge to the valet was welcoming and friendly and the atmosophere is relaxed. and the restaurant, oliverio, was of course delicious.
i also found out that marilyn monroe lived at the avalon for two years. i wouldn’t mind that one bit.
sigh… i can’t wait to go back.
