BEVERLY GROVE—Anya Hindmarch is celebrating Valentine's Day a little early this year. Stop by the designer's boutique at 118 S Robertson on Saturday from 10 to 6pm to sip champagne, check out new spring/summer 2012 bags and perhaps pick out a gift for that special someone. They'll have you know that there's still time to have one of their Marano clutches, above, engraved. [Racked Inbox]
SANTA MONICA—In response to yesterday's Wire item about Charlotte Russe shuttering at Santa Monica Place, a commenter writes: "Regarding the stores at Santa Monica place—I'm not sure that having stores such as Burberry and Coach attract the same customer base such as Charlotte Russe and Foreign Exchange. Also, the layout of the mall is HORRIBLE, which considering is was horrible before the remodel, shows that they should of done a complete overhaul. I don't know if it's been mentioned on Eater, but the section of the food court call "Market" has pretty much become a barren corridor. Another horrible design flaw. A whole strip of eateries, tucked in a corner with a very misleading name. Would love to know the architect on this project." [Racked Comments]
