On Sunday , with my husband at work, I decided it would be the perfect day to just take a drive and go exploring. I packed the kids a lunch , dressed everyone as fast as I could before any of the monkeys could oppose. I just jumped on the fwy at first not knowing where we were going (I do that a lot) and suddenly I thought hmm I havnt been to Melrose in awhile!
I have distinct memories of going to Melrose Ave, senior year with my gf's. It was one of our favorite places to shop for things nobody else had. I mean really EVERYONE at school was rocking Hollister , Pac Sun or Forever21 and well we just needed to stand out more!
Once Justin realized what we were there for and that mommy was NOT going shopping (he kinda freaked out when he saw all the clothes stores) he got into it! We found sooo many new murals and pieces that I had never seen! The pieces were soo ellaborate and colorful. I was so excited to see the different artist work together (as it looked to me) and combine their different styles! I am pretty sure Justins favorite was the wall dedicated to the book "Where the Wild Things Are". I hope you enjoy our picks of the day! I am sure I could do a few more segmants on Melrose Ave alone we didnt even get to explore all the pieces there!!
