MLA in LA

with one comment

Or, as some of us like to think of it: mlaaaaaaaaah. (said like you’re showing your tonsils to the medic.)

I’ve never been to LA and the only other time I’ve been to SoCal was when the MLA was in San Diego. I was interviewing and not doing any touristy things. This time around, I’m on the other side of the table and plan to see a few things. The Getty, the beach, a few awesome restaurants.

When packing for this trip, I became pretty confident that I have nothing “Southern California” enough in my wardrobe. So, I’m throwing in the towel and going as ” professor.” The academic wardrobe is universal: lots of black, some denim, orange accessories. Doesn’t matter if you’re in Berlin, New York, London, or–I’m hoping, Los Angeles. I’m going to dress things up a bit with a skirt that has abstract flowers on it.

So, if you have some must-eat restaurant suggestions for my colleagues and me, let me know soon.

  1. I so feel your pain as I’ve been wondering the same thing. I think I’ve decided to stick with my “uniform”: skirt, scarf, twin set, boots. Assuming that works anywhere.
