Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Lubov Azria is the Creative Director for all of BCBGMaxAzriaGroup and the head designer for BCBGMaxAzria ready-to-wear and runway, Herve Leger by Max Azria and Max and Cleo—which means she’s one busy girl. Dividing her time between New York and Los Angeles, whenever she’s on the West Coast she makes sure to pop into Just One Eye—a shop in Hollywood that operates on an appointment-only basis and stocks designers like Rodarte, Costume National and Kiki de Montparnasse.
"If I had to choose a favorite place to shop in Los Angeles, it would be Just One Eye. I’m captivated by its collection of curated objects. Everywhere you turn, there’s something that inspires: fashion, art, jewelry, furniture and antiques. It has a real romantic, gothic, outlaw energy that always stimulates my imagination. I love their ability to showcase everything from the Rodarte sisters’ innovative creations to Catherine Opie’s compelling photography. Treat yourself to an appointment-only peek today!"
