Mr. Diabolina left bright and early for a boys' weekend in Vegas. So I promptly embarked on a "girls just want to have fun" day. YAY!
Met my mom for breakfast and then we hit the Fashion District. Found some amazing stuff. 4 dresses, 2 tops, 3 bracelets and 2 hair products to be exact.
Wanted alot more but stuck to my budget: $350. I know - pretty amazing haul for that much money ;)
The most exciting purchase was a nearly identical version of this Phillip Lim dress I have been coveting all year. The real thing alone would have cost me what I spent all day.
Oh and I also scored a $60 version of this Dior dress that Claudia Schiffer just wore to the collections. Except I had no idea it was a Dior knockoff. My mom just loved it on me and forced me to buy it. Dying to know how much the real thing costs.
In the afternoon I head west to see KFR and her new(ish) house. Love it. Adore the sprawling backyard. Mr. Diabolina would faint. He's so over condo living.
KFR and I get some summery cocktails and piggie eats near her house. We kvetch about work and help each other see the light at the end of the tunnel. Like we always do.
Then do what we do best - yep, shop some more. Finally peeped that new Phillip Lim maxi dress in person. Adore! Also adore that KFR's dress is from Forever and she's sporting a wrap sweater. Clearly she's an avid blog reader ;)
Saw lots of amazing sandals. But not interested in shelling out more than $30 on sandals. Most were $180ish.
Really want some studded sandals like the ones that Your Everyday Style just blogged about. Also fringed one like the ones Style Rules found at Urban Outfitters in her Best Sandals of the Summer post. This fringed UGG, however, just made me think UGH!
Ended up buying the little asymmetrical, tiered dress I saw on Thursday. $50. Gotta figure out when I'll wear it. Feels like an Easter dress.
And also wanted this one. The print looks exactly like a DVF print a few seasons ago and the shape and those rosettes are very me.
Maybe I'll get it next week. $60. You think it's worth it?
Headed home for a late dinner with The Peeper. Loved her sandals. Loved that she called them Marc Jacobs when they are actually Michael Kors. Love my friends who could care less about labels :)
We ordered in and chatted and took photos with Mr. Diabolina's stuff like we did with her hubby's stuff when he was out of town. Then we joined Mr. Peeper at a house party in Beachwood with some of his besties from med school.
The party was at the sprawling house of network TV writer. Love that words built such a gorgeous house. Dream of the day my words create so much comfort and stability.
The Peeper and I arrived just as a major female indie rockstar was leaving. Within an hour of us getting there, a reality TV icon showed up. Amazingly random L.A. scene!
The party goes until sunrise but I bail a little after 3 a.m. Pretty tired after a hard day of so much girly fun :)

Forever 21 sunglasses and bangle
Louis Vuitton earrings
Stuart Weitzman sandals
I heart this dress. Delish colors and easy fit. Pretty pretty for summer. Looks quite expensive with the expensive accessories :)
Love how the jewelry picks up the turquoise and the the purple in the print. So hot.
The print actually reminds me of a Trina Turk dress I just saw at Bloomie's. $338. Ouchy! Think mine is more wearable though. And you can't beat $32.
I repeat, run don't walk to Image.
