There's a reason why Westside shopping stretch Abbot Kinney was dubbed as the "coolest block in America." The buzzing boulevard is filled with top-notch shopping options locals love. Most recently, the famed street added boutiques by the likes of Rag & Bone, Warby Parker, Iro, and Junk Food Clothing to its already impressive roster. You've already enjoyed a Perfect Saturday on the famed street, but now get ready for an awesome Sunday during this weekend's Abbot Kinney Festival.
From 10am to 6pm, head to the beachy nabe for the all-day block party replete with food, booze, music, kid-friendly activities, and, of course, lots of shopping. Shop everything from art to jewelry to handcrafted goods from 300 vendors including favorites like Heist, designer Jill Aiko Yee, jeweler Nikki Montoya, and many more.
AUST. (1617 Abbot Kinney Blvd.) is also joining in on the party with a rad sale. Festival attendees will be hooked up with up to 70% off the store's merch while they enjoy a live musical lineup. Also, make sure to hit up boho-chic shopping spot Principessa (1323 Abbot Kinney Blvd.), which will be debuting its Unicorn Airlines fall collection and offering 20% off all in-store purchases.
