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.

Marina Morrison-Keiler is the director of PR for Citizens of Humanity (founded by Jerome Dahan, who also started 7 For All Mankind) where she oversees editorial, VIP services, bloggers, social media and more. Here, she fills us in on her favorite spot on Abbot Kinney.
"My favorite find is a store called The Juicy Leaf. My husband and I wandered in a couple years ago while shopping for a gift on Abbot Kinney and we ending up buying one of their fire pots. It was such a big hit we went back a few months later to buy one for our own patio. They also have the most unique terrariums and succulent arrangements in alternative glass vessels. I love the idea that these arrangements last years instead of cut flowers that sadly die a week later. One day, I want to host one of their planting parties?it seems so fun!."
