Nope, they didn't get cold feet: Uber opulent bridal boutique Les Habitudes, known for their frilly, Victorian-inspired gowns and high-caliber clientele (Sandra Bullock, Beyonce, Drew Barrymore, to name a few) has found a new home down the street on Robertson Blvd. Formerly located next to newbies Babakul and across the street from The Kooples' yet-to-open flagship, the decadent dress shop is now serving well-heeled brides and black tie partygoers in a much larger and brighter space at 426 S Robertson Blvd, just two blocks down from their old digs.
Compared to their old two-room setup, Les Habitudes' new spot continues to cater to LA's unconventional, frou frou-loving brides with brighter lighting, a more open layout and better parking. (Always a plus.) "We really like the whole vibe," store manager Mary Zerkie tells us of their new location, adding that a soon-to-end lease and rising rents—we're guessing thanks to major move-ins like workout chain Lululemon—played a part in their decision to pack up and move.
