CULVER CITY—With a slew of new openings, it seems like Platform (8840 Washington Boulevard) is LA's coolest new shopping destination. From retailers like Aesop to Velvet to Blue Bottle, Platform is definitely the place to be for all your fashion and cool coffee needs. This Sunday, stop by for an exclusive shopping event, The Edit, with Frēda Salvador (just opening at Platform) and Janessa Leoné, complete with summer-inspired cocktails from 4:30-7:30pm. Absolutely worth a look.
WEST HOLLYWOOD—As if you need another reason to head to yoga haven Playlist (624 N La Cienega Boulevard), this Sunday, the yogis are combining flow with rescue. From 10am-1pm, Saving Spot Dog Rescue will be on site with LA's cutest puppies that will be up for adoption outside on the Playlist patio. All the dogs need homes so definitely stop by, get in a good workout, and then feel even better when you go home with the puppy of your dreams. Don't even bother mentioning it to your significant other. We swear.
