Day 6 (Hollywood) - On day six we visited the Warner Brothers Studio. We took a tour of their studio - which was so much fun! I saw costumes from Casablanca and the piano that Sam plays! This was the highlight of the whole WB costume museum, that I don't remember much else of what was there. Plus, you couldn't take any pictures of the costumes. =(
After the WB tour we visited Hollywood and saw the footprints outside Grauman's Chinese Theater.
You can see pictures from day six here.
Day 7 (Shopping Day) - On day seven we first visited FIDM and saw some lovely costumes on display- including costumes from Return to Cranford and the new Alice in Wonderland movie. =) What bliss. As you can not take pictures of the costumes, you will have to look at FIDM's flickr page. =) And don't worry, they have pictures of all the costumes on display. Alice in Wonderland pictures here. And Costumes from TV Shows here.
After FIDM we headed over to the Fashion District to shop at Michael Levine Fabric. They had some amazing knits for only $3 yard! I only bought some brown knit, 3 yards, and now I wished I had bought more in different colors and patterns. As it is so easy to work with. =) Next time I'm in LA I will be buying tons of knit fabric. Well, maybe not tons, but you get the idea. =)
Next we headed over to The Way We Wore a vintage clothing store. This is were I bought my first vintage dress! Oh happy me.
We ended the day by walking on Rodeo Drive and window shopping at all the designer stores. =)

Day 11 (Highway 1 & San Francisco) - We drove up the coast on highway 1 to San Francisco. Saw the Golden Gate Bridge. Oh, while we were in San Fran, we froze as it was so cold! I felt like winter was coming! Oh my!
