Le Weekend.

leweekend.jpg_effected-001

Everyone knows I’m such an LA girl; from my personal style to my lifestyle, it’s pretty much the definition of LA. So I’ve been super ecstatic to know that downtown is going under renovations with retail stores, bars, hotels, and restaurants. Many “it” stores are opening up on Broadway that will help revive downtown . I definitely cannot. wait. for. that.

ACNE being one of the first to sign up and open one of their biggest stores yet…finally, we have one in the west coast! Just across the street, A.P.C is opening up as well as the ACE Hotel who is just about to open. Urban Outfitters took over the the old Rialto theater and transformed into a cool space. Pretty exciting stuff happening in downtown and it’s only a matter of time that it’ll cause a chain reaction for other retailers to open up shop.

So we decided to check out the couple stores that have opened and explore downtown on a sunday afternoon. It was such a treat!

    Its about time!.. for so long downtown was like the place that time forgot!… ( aside from the many hidden lovely studios )I was equally ecstatic when I heard about the opening! Lets hope this is a trend that will catch on fast and more cool stores follow along.x

    Hi Jules,’

    My name is Kendall, I’m thirteen, and I’ve just started my fashion and beauty blog.

    (Fashion is currently more on my tumblr, which is the same as my blog, just .tumblr.com obviously)

    I was wondering if you had ant tips to starting up a successful blog. I’d really appreciate it.

    Thanks!
    Kendall

    This is really exciting stuff! Of course the East and West coast get first dibs. Hope they will come down South to Houston soon. I used to work for URBN and it’s great to hear they are in Downtown LA.

    I also love all the changes in downtown! I take the subway & train to work and have enjoyed watching the transformation: angel’s flight, the grand market, the grand park. LOVE it!

  55. Lola Comment #57

    I know this is a “light” blog, I mean just nice things, beauty, style, in which you excel and I think is one one the best. But today, reading this post I just thinked about a report I read back in December about the city you’re so proud of, that I visited some time ago…

    http://www.la2020reports.org/reports/A-Time-For-Truth.pdf

    It’s really sad, but I think we are also sourrounded by things.we sometimes choose not to see. You’re blog is fresh air in the middle of this mad world.
