Hip Me, MetaFilter. You're my only hip. (LA edition)

I know what to wear in New York. (Black) I know what to wear in Tokyo. (Kawaii!) But I have absolutely no idea what to wear to a hip art opening and for a weekend staying in a hip LA hotel. Difficulty factors: poor, frumpy. Please dress me!

Through almost no fault of my own I'll be spending a long weekend next month soaking in the LA art scene and staying in one of the hippest new hotels. I will feel a lot better if my outfits "fit in." No illusions of being mistaken for a hipster/starlet but don't want to look as if I've come in from the farm to sell my butter and eggs, either.
Suggestions for a couple of outfits? I'm female, forties, size ten. Most of my clothing is currently cold-weather, plain pieces in solid colors. Very charitably it could be described as "classic Parisian" but in Hollywood I may just feel old and dull. Please help me not look that way! I have very little $$$ but access to most major chains, good consignment stores, and of course the internets. Thanks!
