Arts and Shopping in Costa Mesa

Posted on May 11, 2009 | 9:00am | Travel Costa Mesa

Saturday, Joseph and I drove up to Orange County to stay with Allison, and help her with her fashion show on Sunday. On the way, we stopped at South Coast Plaza. It is the premiere shopping center in Southern California and Orange County.

Since it wasn’t open yet, we parked and decided to walk around a bit. Luckily, there was a walking bridge that extended from the shopping center into the city! Everything was so cool and artistic, but interestingly strange. As you can see, I got “lost” in all of these bush shrubs.

There was something about this building that I really liked. Perhaps it was the overall design, or the fact that there was a strange eagle-like art piece in the middle of it.

I really liked this shot. In the back is an amazing concert hall called the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. In the front on the left is an art sculpture. We walked around it and realized you could do inside of it. Once inside, everything was echoed to such an extreme.

I took this picture looking up into the art sculpture. It didn’t turn out quite as I wanted but you can get an idea!

After our mid-day adventure, we headed to South Coast Plaza. It was AMAZING. It seriously had any store you could possibly think of like Christian Louboutin, Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent, Zara, Louis Vuitton, D&G, Dior, Fendi, Chanel, Valentino, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Carolina Herrera and Burberry. It’s was like a fashion mecca, I was in heaven 🙂
