Sad news from Blackburn and Sweetzer, which reports that Some Odd Rubies will be packing their remastered vintage frocks and leaving LA in about a month. They boutique has only been in this space for about a year, before which it occupied a storefront on Hillhurst Ave. in Los Feliz (the current site of Steven Alan Outpost).

Per B+S: "Today, co-owner Odessa Whitmire confirmed that SOR is restructuring a bit—Whitmire’s moving back to NYC and the LA outpost...will close, likely on October 1. SOR’s NYC boutique, which opened six-and-a-half years ago, will remain open." This is the second New York-based shop that's left West 3rd Street—and LA as a whole—in recent months, preceeded by Pixie Market in March.
