Here’s what we’re falling for this Autumn…

There have been some big changes at Burberry and we like what we see! This season, we are coveting everything from the fringed bucket bag and suede over-the-knee boots to the entire Fall 2015 ready to wear collection. Designer and Burberry CEO Christopher Bailey (a master at brand reinvention) is the one responsible for creating all the buzz. After doing a short gig at Gucci, Christopher came to Burberry and single-handedly lit the fashion world on fire by turning Burberry into one of the coolest labels out there. We love the new four-story flagship store (created under Christopher’s design direction) in Beverly Hills. Stop by when you’re in Los Angeles and ask for Becky, one of our favorites at Burberry.
They had us at Rosé! Just in case polo and champagne weren’t already enough, this year the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at the historic Will Rogers Park in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles, has added the Rosé Garden. Although tickets don’t come cheap, it’s hard to resist the exclusive lounge seating, bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne, gourmet lunchbox and dedicated valet parking. After all, it’s practically in our backyard.

Now that the distractions of September’s opening festivities have died down, it’s high time to get a good look at what really is on view at Los Angeles’ new Broad Museum. From Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room installation on the first floor (make sure to sign up for your own private viewing time on the iPad stand as soon as you walk in), to the sneak peaks at the art not currently on display as you’re descending the staircase, to the sublime natural lighting of the second floor’s permanent collection. Reserve your free tickets now to avoid spending hours in line.

We like to stop by Uplifters Kitchen for a quick bite whenever we’re in the neighborhood. Our friend, Barcelona-born chef extraordinaire Elisabet Spaulding, brought the bon vivant spirit of the Rustic Canyon Uplifters to this small, chic, local hotspot. Rustic Canyon resident Bob Bronstein designed the space and Canyon ceramicist Moye Thompson produced the featured pottery. The beautiful vegetable-laden flatbreads, the salads and the salted chocolate pecan cookies are to die for, as is pretty much anything else we’ve ever tried here. Uplifters Kitchen just broke through the walls on the space next door for their expansion, so we expect even more good things (and more seating) to follow later this Autumn.

We’re not quite sure what to expect from Rock the Kasbah, Bill Murray, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel’s upcoming Afghanistan-based music flick, but we can assure you that we have every intention of finding out.
