One of the perks to living in downtown LA is being just a few blocks from the LA Flower Mart. I’ve gone on many occasions – whether to stock up on succulents or buy assorted bundles of flowers for a baby shower.
I originally picked out this color-blocked coat to take to NYFW but I ended up leaving a couple days early and didn’t get the chance to wear it there. Fortunately, LA was a little chilly over the weekend so I wore it with some track shorts and it was perfect. I got the top and shorts from Bella Luxx and have to say that they are a new favorite place to go for basics. Both fit perfectly and I love the material… AND they’re made in LA.
***A couple of tips if you plan to visit the LA Mart for yourself: The flowers are a bit more affordable (bundles for $2-8 depending on what you want) and the selection is major. You can find just about anything you’re looking for and the main entry building is only $1 to get in. Parking isn’t too bad (I usually find a spot on Wall St. if it’s later in the afternoon) and all of the parking meters take cards now. Also, some vendors don’t accept cash so bring some or be prepared to take a trip to the ATM.
