The Getty Villa

Los Angeles plays host to many wonderful museums, and among them is The Getty Villa in Malibu.  The Getty Villa, is apart of The Getty family of museums.  It is located right off of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), perched on top of a hill, that looks over the Pacific Ocean.  It is absolutely picturesque on a clear day. It plays host to thousands of pieces from Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. These pieces are placed throughout the villa, that is based on a villa from Herculaneum, Italy.  To visit the Villa, a reservation for parking is mandatory, because parking is limited.  On a side note, they have recently stopped running the pools, and fountains, due to the drought we are experiencing here in California. Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA Audie's Alchemy // The Getty Villa; Malibu, CA

Not Your Typical LBD

When I think of the quintessential Little Black Dress (LBD), my minds goes straight to Audrey Hepburn.  I imagine her standing in front of Tiffany’s, with her pearl ladened long black dress, eating her croissant.  The LBD has come a very long way, since the 1960’s and Dailylook.com has so many great LBDs, for all fashion styles and body types.  Black is one of my style staples and anytime I choose to add a little color, my family goes crazy.  Every closet should have one…or three different LBD options.  Here is my LBD look, featuring a killer pleated maxi dress from DailyLook.

LBD, faux fur coat, booties, handbag, rings, necklace, sunglasses

I have paired this versatile Line & Dot pleated maxi dress, found on Dailylook.com, with an amazing faux fur coat from Topshop.  I just wish it were cool enough, here in Southern California, to wear this fantastic coat.  This maxi dress and coat pairs well with the suede Sam Edelman booties; you can find at Nordstrom.  I kept the rings and necklace simple; like these delicate stacked rings found on Etsy, and a long necklace with straight lines from Nordstrom.  You also can’t forget a killer pair of sunglasses, and these are by Kate Spade.  This bag is by far my favorite accessory, a bison leather day bag by Parabellum.

I feel like this would be the perfect outfit to wear to a Fleetwood Mac show.  What is your favorite LBD look?
