The List : AUTUMN ’18

Falling for Fall



“Nothing this fabulous could last forever,” but director Matt Tyrnauer is doing his best to make sure that the legend lives on by taking us inside New York’s most glamorous nightclub. Studio 54: The Documentary debuts in L.A. this Fall and on October 11th after the 7:30 pm show you can catch the director at his Q+A and ask him everything you’ve been dying to know about the last days of disco. We’re getting our glitter ready now. 



This Fall Chinese dissident artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei will be in no less than three exhibitions in L.A. The Marciano Foundation kicks things off with Life Cycle which uses thin sticks of bamboo to create a life-size raft replicating the plight of the refugees (see also the artist’s excellent film Human Flow). Then gallerist and former MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch inaugurates his Frank Gehry-designed Los Angeles gallery with Ai Weiwei: Zodiac featuring nearly 6,000 wooden stools collected by the artist, accompanied by brightly colored Lego renditions of his familiar zodiac theme. TIP: Look for Ai’s photobomb in one of the Lego creations. And finally, Cao/Humanity offers up a third perspective on the artist’s work at UTA Artist Space, a recently opened gallery designed by Ai Weiwei himself.



Cool Autumn temps mean our fashion will have to pull double-duty by keeping us warm and looking groovy. Zara’s ultra-soft leopard scarf does all of the above. We are in love with this gigantic blanket-like wrap and with the $29.90 price tag we can stay true to our “high and low” roots.😉 So, when the temperatures start to plunge (and that’s anything below 60º for us) we reach for this go-to piece. Buy it while you still can!



This past summer it seemed like a wave of Middle Eastern restaurants hit Los Angeles. As one of our favorite types of cuisine, we took it upon ourselves to try them all. Our hands down favorite was Bavel for the ambience, the experience and above all the food. Opened by Bestia veterans, chefs Ori Menashe and his wife Genevieve Gergis, the restaurant was years in the making and combines flavors from their shared Turkish, Israeli, Moroccan and Egyptian heritage. We’d be remiss not to warn you that reservations can be hard to come by, but tough it out. Bavel is well worth it.



These beauties from Saint Laurent make it just a little easier to leave our beloved summer behind and step into Fall. The glam of the deep red velvet along with the sexiness of sandals make these the best of both seasons. They’re the high to our Zara leopard scarf low and we can’t help but love them.

    I love your blog… Creating content is so time consuming, and I wish you could send it out once a month! Your recommendations are the best.

    Gonna check out Bavel! xoxo Jackie (Landon’s mom)
