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.

If you're a fan of the sartorial choices of Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian, you're looking at the work of their stylist, Monica Rose. Whenever she needs a killer vintage belt to help spruce up her clients' outfits, she heads to West Hollywood's Sielian's Vintage Apparel, where you can score some serious Chanel.
"I am constantly on the hunt for great one-of-a-kind vintage finds that won't break the bank. One if my go-to spots for vintage costume jewelry and belts is Sielian's Vintage Apparel on Melrose. If I am ever in need of a unique belt to complete an outfit for a client, I always know I can count on them. From Judith Leiber to Chanel, Versace and Givenchy, Sielian's has it all."
