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.

Raissa Gerona is the mastermind behind the sassy LA label Lovers + Friends. The collab-happy brand has garnered a cult-like following that includes everyone from LA blogstars to Queen B. Given that the stylish lady has such a great eye for what's hot right now, we tapped her to share her go-to LA shop and she pointed us to a charming vintage boutique on Beverly Boulevard where she heads to unearth show-stopping accessories.
Shabon on Beverly Blvd [is an] amazing vintage store. They have the best accessories. I've been coming here for years and it's my go-to for jaw-dropping, out-of-this-world belts and necklaces. Love!
