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.

Stylist Julie Feingold is the founder of Feingold in Your Closet, a personal styling and wardrobe consulting service providing expertise throughout the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. Launched in 2008, her business was created to provide both men and women with the same wardrobe luxuries as celebrities. Here, she reveals her absolute favorite lingerie shop in LA.
My absolute favorite lingerie boutique in LA is Faire Frou Frou. The first time I stepped foot in this Parisian 'boudoir-esque' panty haven, I immediately fell in love. And by love—I mean infatuation. This little gem is my candy store. Beautifully showcased by the mother/daughter duo, Alison and Gail have an amazing eye and aesthetic for all things girly. Pink walls, antique fixtures and—my personal favorite—the white-and-yellow chevron print floors create a luxurious atmosphere and one-of-a-kind shopping experience. And they carry an assortment of designers that you won't find in every store and a range in styles for all shapes and sizes. As a wardrobe stylist, I can't stress enough the importance of 'what lies beneath.' It's the foundation to a perfectly fitting garment. With Valentines Day quickly approaching, it is THE perfect place to pick up a little somthin' somethin'.
