It’s not every day that you get to take demented family-style portraits in a glamorous canary yellow library firmly frozen in the 60s. My go-to spot during our stay at the The Viceroy in Santa Monica, it felt like a strange movie set due in part to the perfectly coordinated couch, curtains, lamps and dare I say it, lemony shag carpet. Kelly Wearstler created a place that you can sneak away to have hush-hush conversations but inevitably, it’s hard not to let the conversation steer towards the room itself.
The Made U Look girls snapped our first set of photos by the pool and this library is where Gala and I landed next. As I mentioned last time, they shoot almost all in film with a massive variety of vintage cameras and I though that technique fit in especially well in this setting.
This dress. You know how you imagine the perfect wardrobe existing in your mind? In high school, if I had sketched out my collection of dream dresses, this would have been included. It’s by ASOS and appears to be mostly sold out at this point.
If I had the means, I’d have built-in shelves like this in my living room. I love the way Kelly Wearstler envisions spaces. She’s made me appreciate interior design in a whole new way.
In between all the serious shots, we laughed and laughed….and laughed. Our usual routine!
I loved Gala’s dress — It was a vintage number our friend Mary Bee had unearthed and delivered to our hotel room two nights before. It was a perfect fit, just like my polkadot one was. This girl knows her vintage!
I’m not sure if anyone actually reads any of the books in the library but I loved this cover. No surprise there.

Thanks once again for joining us on this little journey! The whole trip feels a bit like a faraway dream at this point (don’t most vacations?!) so it’s nice to have these snaps to remember it by. Still missing Santa Monica, the Viceroy, Gala and the Made U Look trio. Stop by next week to see where we went next! It was by far the most fun.
