OOPS! I never linked to the guest post I wrote for another site with my roundup of independent Los Angeles boutique recommendations! Of course, there are like a bazillion more (yet another reason L.A. is great), but I stuck to ones that focus on independent labels and have their own identifiable aesthetic, ranging from clothing to awesome modern design and crushworthy stationery. Included both west- and eastside options, even though I could have listed five without even leaving Echo Park.
If you're visiting the city, or live here but need to break out of your Urban Outfitters (or American Rag if you're fancy) rut, start with this list. Do you have faves that should go in the next roundup (there are already so many new ones I love in Silverlake, aghh)? Thanks again to Sarah Von of Yes and Yes for the referral!
