How to Shop Luxe and Brunch Like a Parisian in Pacific Palisades

While yesterday's out-of-town shopping itinerary was all about Santa Barbara, our regularly scheduled Perfect Saturday series hones in on yet another well-heeled coastal nabe: Pacific Palisades. Home to fashionable polo matches, the coastal community's sleepy downtown will soon enjoy its very own makeover.

But don't expect trolley tracks or ritzy Romanesque fountains to invade this low-key retail district—megadeveloper Rick Caruso insists the revamp will add to Pac Pal's pedestrian-friendly charm with new shops, a deli and an ice cream shop. To fully appreciate the upscale shopping spot's future transformation, we're exploring the city's current retail therapy options that are worth an afternoon adventure. After the jump, discover where to brunch like you're in Paris, where to shop new and pre-loved luxury designer pieces, where to pick up stylish stationery and more.
