A stop at the Montage Gift Shop to see Lissi Kaplan’s treasures…..

 We ventured forth from the Montage without a plan.  I saw two gals with bags from Taschen, one of my happy places, so off we went….headed down Beverly Blvd.  Our first stop…Mitchel Gold + Bob Williams where Amy fell in love with this chair and said she would marry anyone who bought it!  Price with tax, over $7,000.00.  Of course she’s already married but when a chair like this comes along….Linda W. said “She looks like a beautiful bird in a cage.”

 This classic chevy was in immaculate condition.  Beautiful to see!

Of course I have to take a photo of every puppy I see. Here we have another classic….this time, a Beverly Hills doggie!

 Here’s where the journey really got interesting….We met David Rafaeli, owner of the Templar Diamond and had great fun talking with him.

To top it off, David gave each of us a beautiful bracelet to match our outfits!

 It was right outside of Sephora on Beverly Blvd. and happened to be their opening day.  To celebrate they had several hearty young men take people around on their ‘vehicles’.

 Of course we had to do it so up Beverly we went and then circled around Rodeo passing Hermes where we waved and shouted hello to Reza.  Funny part of that was he was inside at the time!

 I’m so glad I thought to be dropped off at Taschen….saved us a lot of walking!

Thank you Amy for this beautiful book of my favorite city.  Well, next to Kyoto…and of course New York!IMG 1070

 And thank you for this acrylic book stand that I immediately put to good use. It’s soooo cool!

Heading back we had to stop in at  ‘Monnalisa’, THE shop for exquisite dresses and such for little girls.  Everything is created in Italy with magnificent designs, fabrics and prices to match!IMG 1037

 ‘My Dream is to Fly’ is seen on this precious dress.

 Amy fell in love with this one…..even tried it on…it almost fit!

 Oh well.  Forgot where we met Charlie….

 But this pooch was dining at Bar Bouchon…our final stop.

 Nikka had a prosciutto & brie panini…..(you can see her bracelet…it’s similar to mine).

 Amy & I opted for the ahi tuna….

 The real reason we love Bar Bouchon?  Foie Gras de Canard!!!  Oh my….can’t begin to describe it’s lusciousness!
