Last month, we revealed that cult-favorite NYC boutique Love Adorned debuted its first West Coast outpost in Santa Monica. Now that the shop has settled into its new LA digs, it's time to discover everything that the edgy-boho lifestyle mecca has to offer.
Spanning 2,000 square feet, the minimalist and bright SaMo space—which includes a chill backyard cactus garden—features a mix of store owner and jewelry designer Lori Leven's fine accoutrements and one-of-a-kind artisanal finds sourced from years of collecting and globetrotting. Expect to find eclectic vintage goods, handmade decor, apothecary and perfumes, and contemporary jewelry from designers both near and far, including LA's own Communion by Joy, Nature's Geometry, Nick Potash, and Elizabeth Street.
As previously noted, Leven also runs a badass tattoo shop alongside her New York stores, but we're told there are no plans to open a sister ink spot in the City of Angels.
Love Adorned is open 11am to 7pm daily.
