Visiting Violet Grey
One of the first placesI went shopping in Los Angeles last week was the boutique Violet Grey. The Melrose Place mecca for carefully curated beauty products did not disappoint. I saw a lot of things I already use which was gratifying like the Chanel Sublimage line which I swear is the key to surviving long plane travel. I also learned about new lines and products that I can’t wait to try. They don’t carry as many of the gift sets in the store as they do online but lucky for me they did have the Crimson Red Set in stock. They also had the new Diana Vreeland Perfumes on hand which all smelled amazing. I almost went back for one of them but decided to just get on the road to Santa Barbara instead. I asked if they were thinking of opening in other locations and it is their intention to expand but nothing is confirmed as of yet. Until then, I guess I will have to be content to shop online and visit Los Angeles more often.
