We’re back in sweet home Los Angeles for another adventure! Where you ask?! Another mall of course! We’re heading to a mall located in Arcadia called Westfield Santa Anita. I like to call it Arcadia Mall so let’s stick with that.
Arcadia Mall is the perfect mall to get some shopping done if you’re coming down to Los Angeles. It’s about a 30 minute drive from Downtown Los Angeles if you’re staying near that area, BUT the drive is a great way to see more of what Los Angeles has to offer rather than staying in the typical tourist area.
Ssoooo grab your sweater, your purse, and let’s head out!
My dress is from Francesca’s and my boots are from Forever21 including my barrette. I added a long sleeve underneath to stay warm!
Were here! Through Nordstrom’s we go! A.K.A my favorite store to window shop at!
At this mall there’s an outdoor area with maybe about 15 stores.
Arcadia Mall is big enough where there’s a good variety of stores ranging from Free People, Coach, Nordstrom’s to Forever21, E.L.F, and Victoria’s Secret. It’s small enough where you won’t feel overwhelmed by thousands of stores.
In addition, there are various Asian stores I absolutely LOVE! Follow me and I’ll show you some of my favorites!
I had to show all the cute stuffed toys they have!! They’re good prices too! They’re priced at $4.49!
Ahhh!! Forever21 is right across from Miniso I have to make a stop! I’ve been wanting heart shaped earrings for the longest tome! I didn’t see any I liked today but I did find this giant hat and heart shaped sunglasses
Maido and Uniqlo are my usual stores to go into. I was pretty disappointed with Uniqlo today.
There is also a HUMUNGOUS variety of places to eat. You can find oodles and oodles of delicious Asian food and American food. There are Asian restaurants like the Kirin seafood buffet, a hot pot restaurant called HaiDaiLao Hotpot, and the food court to have bibimbap.
My favorite part of the mall to go eat at is the outdoor/indoor area of restaurants
This is where you can find some of the most delicious fried chicken. In a Chinese restaurant called Side Chick which is where we’ll be eating today!
And the most delicious matcha Ice cream at the Japanese restaurant called Matcha Matcha.
This is a recycled picture from a previous blog post that mentions the green tea matcha ice cream I bought. If you want to check that one out, here’s the link for it Forever on a Budget
Around this area is sushi, a seafood restaurant, ramen, and the Taiwanese restaurant, Din Tai Fung which It’s usually a 2 hour wait so you can check in 2 hours before and go shop until your number is called. Supposably they have very good dumplings!
If you’re not into any asian food there’s Johnny Rocket’s, Monkey Bar, The Cheesecake Factory, and many more! Including places to grab a snack, like Annie’s Pretzels and Potato Corner to have a cup of fries!
Well, today was another fun day of shopping with my mom and the imaginary you! Thanks for joining me on my adventure! I hope to see you again in my next post! Check out what I’m doing on Instagram Bbyyyee!
