I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of my good friend Ziba Sabeti’s self-titled jewelry store, Ziba Jewelry, in super swanky Brentwood Village. I loved the airy space adorned with her gorgeous and sparkly designs and serene Buddhas. It’s a beautiful store and Ziba has such a great eye for design and all that glitters that it’s truly a feast for the eyes. Ziba is a Persian word and it means beautiful in Farsi, which is apropos for lovely Ziba and her eye catching jewelry pieces.
I had a great time at the ESPY’s Celebrity Connected Gifting Suite at the swanky JW Marriott. Well worth the trek downtown, especially since I got to meet Jiffpom, the cutest dog ever! Too cute!

I checked out the Gilt City Wearhouse Sale right when it opened at Siren Studios in Hollywood and boy am I glad I did. While I swooned over Valentino, Reem Acra, and other haute couture designers, I was all about the bargains. I picked up a great jacket for $15 (!) and a nice Sam Edelman coat for a song. I spied some great stuff there. Couture hounds beware! Reem Acra gowns that are worn by A listers at the Oscars. A box shaped jewelry encrusted Judith Leiber clutch and some other great bags. Other coveted designer brands featured at […]
