Lucky Little Lady in the City of Light
My loves, I am beyond excited to announce a new adventure. I have been blogging at this site for nearly four years now. My first post was February 14th, 2007!
My blog has always been intensely personal. I believe in sharing ideas, getting feedback and learning from other women. My first blogs were about my favorite artists and designs, as I was decorating my home, but the blog has grown to be so much more over the past few years.
I purchased the http://www.lawoman.com/ domain a while ago, thrilled to discover a site that spoke to me. I'm a gal who grew up in LA with posters of Jim Morrison on her walls, now living on Love Street, steps away from Jim's old cottage in Laurel Canyon. While I have a low-key side, I also love classic glamour and restraint. I pored over beauty and etiquette books from the 50's during high school and still admire Audrey Hepburn's style above all others. Since we're sharing secrets, I confess: Disneyland brings me the same excitement as a trip to Tiffany and Co. The escape! I'm a hopeless dreamer.
While I knew I'd be posting on this fabulous new domain, I always knew LA Woman would be bigger than one person. I am inspired by Sex and the City because I could relate to each character on the show in different ways. Look past the incredible wardrobe and their outrageous adventures, I related to their struggles and friendships that outlasted disagreements. Too bad there aren't more shows like that. I love a reality show, but I'm over shows focused on gals trashing each other, catfights, bitchiness, etc.
I created this new site with friends who all have impeccable taste, yet everyone has a unique style and voice. They make me laugh, inspire me, make me think, and make me want more out of this life. I hope you enjoy all of our thoughts, ideas and musings.
The new site will launch close to my four year blogging anniversary, with lots of romantic, decadent, sweet things. We'll all be sick of our New Year's resolutions by that time anyway, won't we?
I'll keep you posted on the latest developments as they happen and can't wait for you to meet everyone! Check out their sites in the meantime:
