Tokyo Red

Saturday, October 15, 2011

My husband and I are pretty big explorers. When we lived in Chicago I would make him drive me all over the city at 2 am (That's when there's no traffic). It was such a fun time to explore a new city and see all the neighborhoods. Since, we've been living in LA it's more difficult to see this vast land. LA is so much more spread out with a ton of hidden little neighborhoods. Nevertheless, we always seize the opportunity to check out a new place.

My Husband recently found himself in Little Tokyo with a buddy who showed him some amazing mochi balls (Japanese confection made from mochi (pounded sticky rice) with an ice cream filling). As soon as we both had time, he swept me up and wanted to share the confection with me. We took all these pictures in Little Tokyo and I must say my red dress was very fitting for the scene :) This look cost $40.45!!
