Now that we've explored Brentwood's celeb-frequented San Vicente Boulevard, let's venture north in the Westside nabe to another charming shopping stretch. Just a quick drive up South Barrington Avenue is Brentwood Village, which has been known to attract a star or two.
Up ahead, find out where to grab raw vegan food on the go, where to stock up on spring-ready sandals, where to shop luxury European boots, where to shop Cali-cool designer apparel, and more. Be sure to wear some slip-on shoes—you may be walking away with a few pairs of kicks on this trip.
Get a healthy start at new vegan superfood spot Beaming (131. S. Barrington Pl.), a semi-pricey, grab-and-go chainlet that also opened an outpost in Santa Monica. The crowd-pleasing (and tummy-filling) Sexy Mayan smoothie is packed with raw cacao, dates, and banana, while the antioxidant-rich Acai Bowl serves up energy and vitamin C with "freshly sprouted almond milk, bananas, blueberries, coconut butter, and beaming protein."
Next, take a stroll down Barrington and satisfy your shoe addiction at Habit (165 S Barrington Pl.). This sandal sanctuary is currently offering spring-ready footwear from Dolce Vita, Eileen Fisher, Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole, Trask, Johnston Murphy, and more.
Next, hit up high-end designer accessories shop Madison (171 S. Barrington Pl.), not to be confused with its once-related boutique of the same name. The Hilary Swank- and Susan Sarandon-frequented footwear haven specializes in well-crafted European labels like Chloe, Fiorentini + Baker, Officine Creative, Laurence Dacade, and more.
After picking up luxe steppers, make your way around the corner to Market, a Cali-cool boutique that aims to dress "the whimsical modern woman." There, find apparel from Steven Alan, denim from Citizens of Humanity, boho-cool clothing by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, and many other cult-fave labels.
Now that your wardrobe is properly stocked, consider renovating the rest of your abode at Grace Home (11632 Barrington Ct). This high-end interior design and furnishings boutique offers Cali-modern decor inspo for every room, color, and style.
