Miss L Fire in Hollywood!

Last night I had a chance to go to the opening-night celebration for the Miss L Fire store that just opened here in Hollywood.
I'm so excited to be able to try on their adorable shoes and buy a pair with out having them shipped from the UK!

It was just a little schoolnight soiree, but a lot of people showed up!

The store is in a fun part of town. Technically the address is Hollywood, but it's almost in Silverlake...I tend to think of that area as Silverlake, anyway. One of my favorite vegan restaurants, Cafe Flore, is just down the street, and one of my all-time fave art galleries, La Luz de Jesus, is in the same block. So it;s a pretty cool neighborhood.

The store looks super cute, and of course the shoes are amazing. Their displays are a lot of fun.

Besides amazing shoes like these:

and these:
they're also carrying a bunch of other goodies, like a line of repro celluloid/bakelite style jewelry

They also have the Miss L Fire line of repro lucite bags:

Those are really cute, I think, and honestly you could spend years and years, not to mention a bajillion dollars, for a "real" vintage pink lucite bag. Why not have a cute pink bag now?

I was also really thrilled to see that they are carrying Freddie's of Pinewood jeans!! Hooray! I've wanted some for the longest time, but no-one sells them anywhere in LA (until now) so now I can try them on and see how they fit!

They had a band, which unfortunately was packing up just as we arrived, and there were lots of guys & gals dressed to the nines.

I met Monica:

and Vanessa:

You probably can't appreciate it from my crummy iPhone pic, but she's wearing the greatest novelty-print rayon dress with sombreros on it, and around her neck is an amazing celluloid (or Bakelite..I didn't ask) and cork necklace.

The ironic thing about the whole night? I was walking around in my Lucky Lou tiki-heeled shoes that were KILLING my feet!

Time to trade these babies in for some Miss L Fires!
