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.

Cydney Morris and Dallas Wand are the BFFs behind Stone Cold Fox. These Californian beach girls have made their mark in the fashion world with their blogger-approved made-in-Cali designs. From badass belts to whimsical bridal dresses, these ladies sure know how to bring out your inner boho babe. Naturally, they love all things vintage. When we tapped the creative duo to share their go-to spot for stellar finds, Cydney pointed us to a tiny shop in Little Tokyo.
I love Raggedy Threads because it's in a little hidden spot in Downtown Los Angeles and it's never over picked. It's a small store and the selects that the buyer chooses are always immaculate. I get the best vintage band t-shirts, lace dresses and vintage Levi's. They even have the most amazing vintage children's clothes.
