Indulge Me


With my first quarter 15-second student film behind me, I was free to make my personal contribution to the ailing retail economy earlier today. But before I exercised my right to swipe (my credit card, that is), le cub and I took the puppy on a happy hike through Runyon Canyon. As if Beans weren't stimulated enough following the hike, we drove him to The Modern Dog, an uber-yuppy doggy boutique along Abbot Kinney. I'd received a generous gift certificate for the shop from my good friend Johnny for my birthday, and I thought, what better time to spend it all than now? It's Christmas! Scooped up fancy-shmancy cookies, duck breast treats, and some stuffed toys for Beans. I swear he smiled when I presented him with his very first sock money.

Later in the evening, after le cub departed for his much-anticipated seven pub crawl, I swung by Century City mall to finish up my Christmas shopping. Can't list what I picked out for my friends and family, but let's just say I did good! And for myself? (I couldn't resist the urge. Everything's on sale!) I searched high and low for something spectacular (or at very least, fun) to wear on New Year's Eve. A jewel-tone satin top by Velvet satisfied my craving for color, a pair of rich, black, suede booties from recession-friendly Zara will go nicely with both skinny jeans and mini-dresses, and a cozy cowl-neck oatmeal sweater (that will always serve me well as a dress) from Madewell will all be making multiple appearances during my trip back home.

Looking forward to packing everyone's gifts and ooh, my beautiful new clothes!
