Back to School.
This is the official last weekend of summer. Summer weather, however, will last way into October here in Los Angeles. We've had a really mild summer, only a few hot, hot days.
I do remember going back to school, wanting to wear my new fall clothes purchased at various department stores around town (May Co., Ohrbachs, Broadway and that divine little boutique in Beverly Hills, Pixie Town). It was always too hot to wear the wool plaid skirts and scratchy sweaters until late in October. That's how we invented layering, I'm sure.

How appropriate that these models are standing in front of a fire engine. This is fire season in Los Angeles! Have a safe and wonderful Labor Day Weekend, everyone.
