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.

Jacqueline Rezak is the celebrity stylist behind the uber-cool e-shop Rad and Refined. Miley Cyrus and her big sis Brandi are big fans of the shop for its killer selection of edgy pieces from cult-favorite brands mixed in with a little bit of vintage. From running her shop to styling celebs, we knew the Diet Coke lover would have intel on hidden shopping gems in LA. Here, she directs us to her newest favorite LA-based e-commerce site founded by one of her friends. Lucky for us, the e-shop caters to Angelenos in a very special way.
Shopsuperstreet.com is a brand new online shop owned by a friend of mine Lucy Akin. Although the store is online, Lucy makes exceptions for appointments and same-day delivery, which makes it really easy to shop for my clients. Her shop is stocked with designer accessories, vintage Chanel and amazing street style. Plus, she even stocks items like skateboards!
