Oh, please...if anything is "so over" it's a "dress code" anywhere in BH..what is IN is a private driver...

sounds like you'd have a LOT more fun in W. Hollywood anyway, Pam

Oh yes, how could you forget the oversizsed Dior sunglasses.

Wear them at night.

What's a snicker?

I have worked in BH and Century City for years and the Beverly Hills thing is cracking me up. I probably wouldn't choose BH to stay unless there was a specific reason. However, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Melrose are all close. Shopping is good in BH and some restaurants and hairdressers...not just the big name ones.

So what if you are dressed like you're from somewhere else. Most people are. The preppy-Phoenix-boring-mom look works in lots of places with a mini van. Uggg! Phoenix has great clothes and I like the Lacoste thing again but with sneakers and jeans. Lines must be drawn...major glamour don't!!! Awful on anyone!

Creased pants...my mom and dad love that. Why not.

I am sure a mullet and jean overalls would be okay too.

No man I know where's a coat and tie to dinner in LA, unless an event dictates to, under the age of 55.

It is chilly at night without sleeves or a jacket or sweater in April.

I love the pucci post. Sunglass posts...so true. the dog purse vs your purse...funny!

I was hoping someone would mention purses--so, where do the BH folks buy their knockoffs and fake Dior sunglasses?!

Price Range?

Less expensive is the Cheese Cake Factory which is the original one (it is chain) or Kate mandelini for comfort food(spelling?)

Pricey but my favorite would be the Ivy. Ask for a table outside. It is a lovely setting.

At the bottom of Rodeo by Wilshire is I think it is called Rodeo Place there are several good luchtime places as well if you are out shopping.

The Pennincula Hotel is nice for lunch and later the Library style bar is a great place to people watch! talk about fashion dos and don'ts you see it all!

this is a thread about places to eat near where you'll be, I'm sure there are others, but I remembered seeing this one not long ago.

snickers/sneakers? we must know, perhaps snickers is a new fashion trend- inquiring minds want to know - if not sneakers, how do you wear your snickers? ....perhaps dangle a miniature bar from your ear hoops, that way if you get hungry waiting for a table at Ivy, you have something to munch on, - you might start a new trend....

PLACES TO EAT: drive south from your hotel down Beverly Drive. Head south of Wilshire--lots of great places to eat: expensive (Ruth's Chris Steakhouse) to moderate (Mako--Japanese) to inexpensive (Chin Chin).

The weather varies so much from year to year. Last April was warm, but this year looks to be cooler based on how it is right now, LOL.
I like the Chico's advice, dark wash boot cut jeans, khaki's or capri's. Remember layers though and bring a wind/ rain jacket. And you probably won't need shorts/ tank tops. But check the weather right before you go.

While some of the areas in L.A., notably at the Grove by Farmers Market and the Promenade in Santa Monica, you will still find women in 90 degree weather wearing Uggs (which are great in Mammoth, but in So. Cal. ridiculous!), thankfully in BH that trend is "so over".

I'm in L.A. and would recommend bringing layers for April. This time of year the weather can fluxuate quite a bit. There's some pretty, semi-warm days where you'd be okay in pants & a t-shirt, but more days where you'd want a sweater and then a light coat at night. Closed toe shoes this time of year, too. In April we do get some rain.

There's no need to "dress up" in Beverly Hills. L.A. is really very casual. I'd say jeans & some trendy tops for day, maybe a dress for night depending on where you're going. Really, I see people wandering around Beverly Hills wearing all manner of things. Just make sure you bring enough options that you won't be cold if we get a rainy/windy streak. Have fun!

I'll have to agree with you Sylvia. Even though I don't remember the time when it was the norm to dress up (I'm 41) it still looks way better to even wear khaki pants then jeans 24/7 with a t-shirt and tennis shoes. Tennis shoes have to be the most ugly footwear ever made. I buy Merrell slip ons without the laces in front.

There's different ways to wear jeans. One is faded/ tapered jeans with a plain t shirt and lace up sneakers. The more BH way I would think is dark wash bootcut jeans, leather slip-on or low cut boots, and a "trendy" top. I'm over the hill (50 something), but I take hint from my 20 something daughter, LOL.
