Flaunt tonight at Junc Gallery in LA

Sometimes I crave a portal. Okay, I actually wish for such oddball things quite often, a space in which I could slip into and zip! I'm on the other side of the world. In a way, the web is a portal, blogs are portals, and I hope that decor8 is your own little place to escape, a spot to silently slip into a new world filled with pretty things, some you've seen before, others not.

Tonight, I want to close my eyes and wake up in LA. I want to spend the day smelling the salty air on Santa Monica beach, take that post-beach shower that always feels so good (and reveals how much sun you really got during the day) and then spritz on something pretty, slip into something girly, and head over to Junc Gallery for their show, Flaunt, featuring some of my favorite artists like Camilla Engman, Jen Corace, and Nathan Gray. Then, an hour or so later, drop the top of my leased convertible (total east coast tourist in me!), hit track 1: Run - Snow Patrol and cruise down Montana through Brentwood and into the heart of Hollywood. Grab dinner (Cuban, perhaps?) and of course, mojitos. Maybe even meet up with my pal, John. After spending two weeks in LA last summer, I'm hooked. I must get back there. Soon.

Since I'm unable to fulfill my desires this evening, I'm leaving it up to you. If you're in LA, please head over to Junc. Mingle. Enjoy Camilla, Jen and Nathan. Who can resist the carefree feeling of a Saturday summer night? After such great art, follow with your favorite restaurant, a nice summer cocktail, and a huge dollup of great friends and good food.

Have fun! Reception begins at 7:00 p.m.
