If you haven't heard of Jerome Rousseau, you'll wonder where he's been all your life. His approach to designing shoes is to first draw from pop culture, design and modern art influences, creating shapes, silhouettes and structure that become this:

This past weekend we checked out the Downtown Los Angeles Flea Market, held every 4th Sunday. For years Los Angeles has been working to revitalize its downtown core and develop residential pockets to appeal to working professionals. I love checking these flea markets out in different neighborhoods because they serve as a congregating place for those who are passionate about creativity and design. I'm hopeful that Los Angeles, with it's reputation for being,shall we say not the friendliest of cities, can make its downtown a center for creative inspiration. I'm so psyched for another upcoming addition to LA's downtown: Unique LA's Unique Space, slated to open this Fall. The Unique Space is intended to be part co-working space, part venue host for book launches, workshops, fashion line launches etc. With the launch of the DTLA flea market and The Unique Space this year, Los Angeles is gaining momentum in establishing its role as more than an entertainment and media hub, but as an incubator for creatives and artists alike. I'm curious to see how our city will change in the next few years, and whether creative-types will actually move into spaces downtown, or if downtown residential spaces will remain vacant.

Summer is officially over and I was able to momentarily whip out this Zara jacket I'd been saving for Fall (until the temp rose back to 80 later in the day). There's something a bit sombering and nostalgic about the start of Fall as it starts to get dark out earlier and flip flops get packed away. As the evenings get cooler here in LA, I flash back to my childhood days in the Midwest. My friends and I jumped into giant mounds of leaves we raked up during Fall season. Scents in the air changed from sunscreen and citronella to damp leaves and spiced cider. You could literally hear the faint echoing of cheers every Friday night from the football game at our high school. It's amazing how certain smells and sounds bring back such vivid memories. I'm excited for upcoming traditions like taking our 3-year old to the pumpkin patch and corn maze (yes they still have those in LA!), and of course Halloween. I'm hoping to get my little one as excited about the new season as I was growing up.
What other Fall traditions are you looking forward to for yourselves and (if applicable) your little ones, and most importantly, what other Fall trends are you loving or not loving?
