Rushing out of work it’s 7 PM, I get changed, apply make up, grab my co-worker and off we went to the official Project Ethos bash in Hollywood. Traffic was a mess; naturally. Lucky enough we were on the buyer guest list and gained easy access to one of the most anticipating nights of Los Angeles Fashion Week. We walk in the music is loud and fashionistas are strutting their stuff around the lobby with drinks in hand. Non stop whispers about the fashion shows and friendly outfit detail exchanges were interesting to overhear. I wore a black Marciano jumpsuit with YSL black pumps and a statement necklace I scooped up from TJ Maxx. My co-worker wore a lace Diane Von Furstenberg LBD number with a golden zipper panel in the back. We talked, we laughed, and we enjoyed all the LA based designers showing their latest collections. Deandri, Hale Bob, Pas Pour Toi, and K. Dorsey were amongst the designers whose runways were fun to watch. The gig was sponsored by Scion with a sold out venue and guest models from America’s Next Top Model and Shahs of Sunset. Nightlife marketing platform French Tuesdays were there to add a dose of sophistication with their exclusive members who also attended the party. Till next year LAFW.

North Hollywood is usually not my side of town but I will definitely make a trip for a philly cheese steak sandwich from Philadelphia Sandwiches. I love philly cheese steaks with a passion; even the ones that at the food court. Bread (check) Cheese (check) Meat (check) what more could you want? Philadelphia Sandwiches is a family owned restaurant owned by an older russian couple in the heart of North Hollywood/Valley Village. The place is decorated with old newspaper clippings dating all the way back to the 40’s (It is pretty awesome). The menu is straight to the point, the portions are big, good quality products, and the prices are affordable as well. I have had many cheese steaks in my life, the ones from this local joint definitely make the top list.
My favorite : A large philly mushroom cheese steak with mayo.
