A huge TV in a random empty studio lot, that is. :) One of our best friends recently posted a picture at the giant TV setup like a late night talk show on instagram, and I was smitten – determined to find this little gem for fun blog post! So yesterday, we drove around Hollywood trying to find it and then had to convince the security guard to let us take pictures… we were finally able to get these shots in (and were only given 5 minutes to take them lol).

Afterwards, we had brunch at a cute little restaurant nearby called Grub. It’s set in what seems like a repurposed small house with a shabby chic, cottage meets Hollywood feel. The food? Delicious. When you’re seated, they give every table a bowl of cute kids cereal to munch on (like other restaurants would do with bread & butter). We had their blueberry lemonade which was nice and refreshing. Eggs, Country Potatoes, and Crack Bacon – a perfect combination of sticky sweet and salty, extra crispy bacon seasoned with light herbs. The star of the show was their Our Friggin’ Amazing French Toast made with cinnamon vanilla battered croissants covered with pecans and a nice scoop of their raspberry butter. I didn’t finish everything I ordered but now I wish I’d taken the leftovers home – so good!!

Later on, it got even windier so I switched into jeans and boots and we headed to the Melrose Trading Post flea market. We continued to walk off those calories and did even more damage at Fred Segal and Marc Jacob.  Those will be in my upcoming haul post ;) which I’m, as always, behind on. Actually, this blouse I’m wearing is part of that post, too, which I bought a good three weeks ago lol!

    Hi! I love your outfit! You look so chic! I was wondering what color your prada glasses are. Are they the havana color or the pink gradient two toned one? Please let me know. They are super cute!!!

    • HautePinkPretty April 4, 2012 at 8:31 am #

      Hi Keona :) thanks so much!

      I also wore them in this post http://hautepinkpretty.com/2012/03/13/zara-mint-green-blouse-hm-floral-dress-prada-baroque-sunglasses/ (more pics up close)

      They were really hard to find =/ I finally found this color combo at the actual Prada store at Crystals in Las Vegas (sales associate referred to them as the two-toned pair). I would highly suggest calling the store and seeing if they have it, they could probably ship it to you… or calling any actual Prada store as I found that no resellers had this color anymore (no department stores like Nordstrom/Bloomies or Sunglass Huts that I found). Sorry, hope that helps!!
