I arrived early Sunday morning and took the extra time to walk down to the beach and spend some time reading in the sun. However, once I got there, I pretty much spent the entire time people watching. The surfers, the joggers, the cute couples, the young families, the guy with the metal detector--there were all kinds of people there!
I checked into my gorgeous room at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. I later found out that this hotel was decorated by the fabulous Kelly Wearstler--no wonder it looked so good!
The afternoon started off with a brunch at the Viceroy for Lucky FABB attendees hosted by the lovely ladies of RewardStyle! The food was great, but admittedly my favorite part was seeing all of the stylish outfits the other ladies were wearing.
There were many neon details in the crowd. This bright mani on Cassidy of Naturally Curly really caught my eye!
I also adored this Tory Burch necklace spotted on Sade of The Icon Concierge!
After the delicious brunch, we boarded a double decker bus for a shopping safari hosted by the gals of Have to Have.
Soaking up a little sun with Carlina of Allergic to Vanilla!
On this bus ride, I had the honor of meeting the owner of gorgeous hand-painted manicure, Kelsi Smith!
The bus took us to Abbot Kinney in trendy Venice for a little shopping crawl where a spotted many a thing that I wished to take home with me.
Pssst... Help me win the shopping safari contest by clicking through to #28 and saying that you have to have the Gary Graham dress I spotted at Heist!
And as proof that I can laugh at myself, I present this photo. Take a close look at the outfit; notice anything strange? At some point during the day, I managed to put my vest on inside out (I blame it on travel fatigue!). An not one person said a word to me! I can only hope everyone thought I was trying to start some fun new trend!
