This season on the buy, we took the chance to shoot some of our brand new product in L.A! This is something that was new to us, and we had no idea where to go for the best locations. We took to Pinterest and searched for the most Instagram worthy places to check out!
In true Mad Team fashion, each stop had a 50% chance of being coffee and 50% sweet treats. We can’t help ourselves! Our day started with strolling downtown LA. for our first caffeine fix at the bright and sunny Starbucks (this was our first stop every day of the trip)! We wanted to capture some true street style looks of a boss, business lady doing her thing on the way to work.
Next, we drove down to Melrose Ave, which is wall art heaven. The glam life of taking our own photos meant we had a full wardrobe each to change into in the trunk of our rental car on a side street. We passed Paramount Pictures, furniture boutiques, and some really cool cafés that totally had celebrities in them at some point. The top places we found to stop and take a pic are:
- Paul Smith Pink Wall (surprisingly, you aren’t allowed to use a real camera here, only iPhone).
2. Carrera Café; you can use an app to scan in any photo and get it printed on a latte. That is the future!
3. Mademoiselle M French Bakery. We stumbled upon this stop simply because the outside of her bakery is hot pink, and that’s our aesthetic. Mademoiselle M has studied pastry making in Paris and her fruit tarts are out of this world!
4. Liquid. This juice bar is the essence of L.A. With bright yellow decor and the longest list of juices and smoothies. Iz opted for a chocolate, banana & espresso smoothie and would highly recommend.
Taking this day for the photoshoot meant we had to power shop to make up for the last day. We think it was worth it! What do you guys think, should we make this a tradition?
Ps. Stay tuned for Part 2 of our photoshoot day in Malibu and at the beach!
