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.

Jackie Chambers is an independent blogger, stylist, and online marketer. She currently works with companies like Fashion Snoops, A-Side Worldwide, and Targus and maintains her own blog, TGIF Guide, covering travel, food, fashion and more. She told us about Lemon Frog Shop, one of her favorite places in Echo Park for fun finds.
"Lemon Frog Shop is quirky, obscure and absolutely perfect. It is stocked with worldy treasures and hip vintage and the owner is so sweet and is always there to help you. I fell in love with more than a few things in the store but ended up walking away with a sleek black-and-white clutch that I use all the time. I first discovered the shop when I had a meeting at the cafe next door. There are so many great dresses and accessories, and something for every price range. I have been meaning to take a trip back and stock up on some unique pieces."
