SHOP HER WISH LIST
✓ My favorite vintage store in LA is Squaresville in Los Feliz, they always have the best stuff and it’s pretty affordable.
✓ If I want to give myself a panic attack, I will go to the Rosebowl Flea and beeline it to the vintage clothing section, covering my eyes when I pass the Moroccan rug section whispering “you don’t need this” quietly to myself, over and over again.
✓ Sometimes I will just stand inside Mohawk General Store just to feel what it would feel like to be able to afford their clothes. I think they know.
✓ The best date spots are Figaro (feels like Paris, all of the waiters have real French accents or very impressive fake ones), Good Luck Bar (feels like the inside of a sexy fortune cookie), Sonny’s Hideaway for great booths and cocktails, and Kombu Sushi (it’s cheap and Pauly Shore is almost always there so you can talk about him when you run out of things to talk about)
✓ The best places to cry are Sunset Blvd at night (it’s your best defense against getting murdered - no one wants to deal with an already-hysterical woman), Echo Park Lake (no one will be able to see you from your paddleboat), Silverlake Reservoir Dog Park (dogs can sense sadness and they’re fun to watch from a safe distance), and Hollywood Forever Cemetery (you’ll feel very LA)
