Citysearch has released the winners of their 2009 "Best of Los Angeles Shopping"—a list that spanned to the farthest corners of the city. LA's best men's clothing can apparently be found at LIVE! On Sunset, while the women's prize goes to Manhattan Denim in Manhattan Beach. Despite having "denim" in its name, the shop lost Best Jeans to Paige Premium Denim on Robertson, while Santa Monica's DAME won for best vintage and best shoes. Serifos in Silver Lake took the title of Best Accessories, Best Jewelry and Best Home Decor, while Ted Baker curiously won for formalwear. As for the best boutique, period? Congratulations to Principessa on Abbot Kinney, which took away the title. What do you think of the results? [RackedWire]
