Nelson EditSince moving back to LA after graduating, I’ve been heading into downtown LA more and more often to run errands for my boss. I love running to showrooms, retailers, trim distributors and learning how this industry works. Not to mention I get to explore the little pockets of the downtown area I never got to see before.Nelson Edit 2On this particular day, I was sent to deliver some products to our showroom in the Cooper building. I got a chance to talk to the owners of the showroom and learned a little bit about their little niche in the industry. For brands like ours, showrooms are essential to our sales. Without them, retailers and boutiques would find it difficultΒ to discover our products.Nelson Edit 8For my day at the office, I wore a warm jacket I got from Express and paired it with a white HUF jersey with Express pants. The weather in LA has gotten rather weird as of late because of El Nino so a warm jacket over a relatively breathable outfit helps me transition from warm office spaces to the chillier streets in a breeze.Β Nelson Edit 15My trusty Banana Republic backpack and Aldo timepiece finish off the look with utilitarian ease. My friend Makito happened to be shooting in the area and after a hearty lunch over at my favorite tteokbokki place, we snapped this ootd before I went in to tour the showroom.Β Nelson Edit 9Nelson Edit 10
