We at a A Girl in LA love a good dose of nostalgia, so when we heard that Moschino was creating a ready to wear My Little Pony capsule collection, we instantly became obsessed. The line features mini dresses, tee shirts, skirts, jackets, handbags, cell phone cases, key chains and tons more of pastel colored ponies. The prices range from $75 - $1,295, but it’s well worth the splurge. You can view the whole collection right here.

Broken Shaker, the Miami based restaurant which also has locations in New York and Chicago, recently opened up a spot at the Freehand Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The restaurant features small bites and cocktails that are served on the rooftop pool / bar which rivals other DTLA rooftop dining establishments. Broken Shaker is the perfect spot for drinks after work or a place to pregame.

All Things October
Los Angeles does Halloween and the fall like no other place. Sorry East Coast! What we lack in fall foliage, we make up for in parties, pumpkin patches and kickass costumes. We made a bucket list of all the things you’re going to want to do this season. DIY projects and recipes; must visit places; parties to attend; where to eat on Thanksgiving and cabins in the woods. We have it all! Our list will give you fun filled weekends all the way through the end of November.
Let’s be honest, blockbuster scary movies these days tend to be more of a comedy than a scarefest, so when we see one that has potential, we hope that it's going to draw more chills than laughs and The Snowman looks creepy AF. The British crime thriller stars Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia), J.K. Simmons (Law & Order), Chloë Sevigny  (Big Love), and Val Kilmer (Top Gun).
Harry Hole (Fassbender) is an elite crime detective who’s in charge of investigating the disappearance of a victim on the first snowfall of winter. He starts to worry that the serial killer known as “The Snowman” is back to kill and must connect decades olds murders to defeat The Snowman before he strikes again.
