I had the pleasure of meeting up with a fellow vintage peer a couple of weeks ago, the lovely Rodellee of Adore Vintage! i've been dieing to finally do one of these meet ups of someone who i got to interact with via the social networks; in this case Twitter.
we met up at lamill coffee in Silver Lake. super fun part of town here in L.A.. allot of cute boutiques, places to eat and just great people watching. i had a creme brulee latte, which really did have a layer of brown sugar fired up on top. it was quite rich for my coffee taste, i'm a straight up coffee type of gal. but i enjoyed what basically was a desert in a cup to me .
Rodellee was so sweet to share her french toast with me. it was not your typical soft toast, but it was a crunchy delicacy with the right touches of maple and sugar absorbed into it. i highly recommend it for you locals or those visiting the Silver Lake area.
the meet up was a complete success having much in common. both being moms to teenage girls, running vintage on-line shops and working in the fashion industry! her step-daughter's name happened to be Chloe and of course mine being Zoe; she being 12 and mine being 13! what a happy coincidence! in our next meet up were planning on the girls meeting, we're hoping they'll have as much in common.
she also brought her lovely friend Sade along, (she is the one taking the pictures). she herself is a very talented photographer, i've seen her beautiful editorials she's done for Adore Vintage. it was truly nice meeting such creative and VERY nice gals. that was the icing on the cake!
check out Rodellee's super cute vintage shop Adore Vintage. and her BLOG is as lovely full of vintage eye candy, vintage inspired fashion and editorials she's styled!
