We're not the only ones doling out awards this week. LA Weekly has just released their "Best of LA 2012" issue, which offers awards in a zillion very specific categories—some more quirky than others. Case in point: "Best Fashions From China That Look Like Beverly Hills" went to Soho/South (4865 Topanga Canyon Blvd), "Best Post-Mastectomy Bras" went to Laura's Corset Shoppe (232 N Brand Blvd) and "Best Local Jeweler for Women Who Don't Like Jewelry" went to Racked LA friend Suzy Lequeux of Rossmore.
