Today we had a perfect sunny day for the annual Los Angeles Garden Tour
sponsored by the Friends of Robinson Gardens
Most of the ladies at the event were in floaty flowery frocks and big hats
but I dressed down for the occasion
in a khaki cotton suit by Nine West ($24.99 at Ross!),
and hot pink Escada loafers and Celine bag, both vintage 2001
(yeah...as if I had my own Denys Finch Hatton to take me big game hunting...and then wash my hair alfresco)
my daughter kindly asked me where my bolt action rifle was.
I responded by accessorizing with vintage jewelry rather than buck shot.
antique Victorian diamond flower brooch in 18K
appropriate I thought for spending time some of the prettiest gardens in the city
diamond earrings in 18K
a Cartier watch and a diamond line bracelet in 18K.
I would have posted some images of the amazing gardens that I walked through today
but we were not allowed to take photos on the tour in order to protect the privacy of the homeowners.
The last garden on the tour, which I missed because I had to get back to the office,
was at the Playboy Mansion.
Apparently, there were no bunny sightings on the property.
