Personal Style [Silverlake Spots] Wild for Extravaganza For the Senses Los Angeles Food and Wine Fest

Monday, July 30, 2012

I'm a simple gal with simple needs-good eats and good fashion. I definitely believe my food and style philosophies are very much aligned as I'm willing to taste any edible object and try on any flowing piece of fabric, once. My love for food and fashion collided at the Extravaganza For The Senses Food and Wine Event as I got to taste an array of not just edible but rather delectable morsels from some of the most fabulous restaurants in LA while wearing my fierce leopard skirt from Flirt Catalog.

The tasting event benefiting The Saban Free Clinic is currently in its 15th year and is one of the largest and most celebrated food and wine events in Los Angeles. Held in the backlot of the Sunset Gower Studios, the event consists of mouth watering samples from over forty food and wine vendors, a silent auction, live DJ, psychic readings, and detox massages. It is put on with the help of The Wine House and The New Friends of The Saban Free Clinic. The Saban Free Clinic, formerly The Los Angeles Free Clinic, in collaboration with strategic partners, serves as a medical home for the underserved and those who are most vulnerable by providing comprehensive, dependable and affordable quality health care in a caring environment.

That night my senses were overwhelmed and brought to be brink of no return. The food tasted amazing and the wine deliciously intoxicating. The music put me in a giddy, trance-like state as I automatically shuffled my feet to the rhythm, creating my very own personal dance space wherever I went. The Hollywood sign directly faced the studio backlot and I couldn't help but sneak furtive glances at it throughout the night as it reminded me of all that it symbolized. Reach for the hills, reach for the stars...because anything is possible in the city I call home.

With the angle and distance, I look like Gulliver from Gulliver's Travels in this picture!
