Just like last year, we've tapped a handful of reputable fashion friends to weigh in on 2013's greatest hits (and misses). Last week, we named LA's best shops and brands. Now, we're asking insiders what stores they'd love to see open in LA in 2014.

Dover Street Market New York via Racked NY

Jen Weinberg, Glamour West Coast editor: "Jerome Dreyfuss—his bags are perfection and naturally, he should have a storefront near his wife, Isabel Marant. I would also die for the Manhattan Vintage Show to come to LA. It's where I have purchased all my best vintage, and I miss it dearly."

Monica Rose, stylist and designer: "Alexander Wang."

Sarah St. Lifer, freelance journalist: "Wouldn't a Dover Street Market be dreamy? And wasn't Maryam Nassir Zadeh going to open an LA outpost? I'd tell my employer to direct deposit all paychecks there if she finally sets up shop!"

Melissa Akkaway, designer and Beckley Boutique owner: "I would love to see the Aussie brand Sass and Bide. They just opened their NYC outpost but the LA girl would love to see that store here."

Richard Wainwright, A Current Affair co-founder: "Forty Five Ten from Dallas or MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing) in San Francisco."

Simone Harouche, stylist and Simone Camille designer: "I would love to see L'Eclaireur from Paris open in LA."

Christos Garkinos, Decades co-owner: "A standalone Isabel Marant mens store."

Kaya B. Mlle Mademoiselle designer: "LA pretty much has all the brands I want."

Sonja Rasula, Unique LA founder: "Band of Outsiders or Saturdays."

Tommy Lei , My Belonging blogger: "An Acne Studios boutique. The best part: It already happened."

Amanda Thomas, Luv Aj designer: "I have a sick addiction to Pinkberry so I just wish they would open one close to my house so I don't have to drive 20 minutes to get my fix!"
