Lunch :: Sherman Oaks Shopping & 'Shi











I absolutely love the neighborhood where I live, and a rare day of relaxation provides the perfect opportunity for an afternoon of exploration. The stretch of small shops and eateries on Ventura between Van Nuys and Sepulveda is my favorite. I adore the cozy feel that this corner of the San Fernando Valley provides!

I recently became obsessed with one secondhand shop called Rewind. After selling a bunch of items to the store, I immediately purchased a bunch, and even had a little credit left over. I wore a couple things over the weekend, and I can't wait to share how I styled them!

For dinner, I walked across the street to Asakuma Rice -- the first sushi restaurant I'd visited after moving to California in 2009. It could be simply because of that fact, but it still remains my favorite today.

  9. The food looks delectable. Being a vegetarian, I've never sampled actual sushi (just the vegetarian variation of it that uses tofu and sweet potato instead). Looks like you were able to take full advantage of a day off, good job! :D
