To help broaden your LA shopping horizons, here's a roundup of super-inspiring independent stores that feature fashion, home goods, beauty, and even botany from a kickass range of local talents.
New to the list: model-off-duty spot Anine Bing, Instagram-worthy hangout Articulum General Store, minimalist mecca Assembly Los Angeles, plant life palace Hot Cactus, style sanctuary Mixed Business, psychedelic vintage haunt The Pistol Club, and luxurious beauty boutique Violet Grey. We also replaced Clare V.'s Silver Lake flagship with its adorable new West Hollywood location.
To make way for these additions, we removed recently-shuttered favorites Flamingo Vintage and Buttons & Bows. We also ditched Douglas Fir, It's a Wrap, Left House, Possch, and Weekend Lovers this time around. If your favorite hidden gem didn't make the cut, give them a shout in the comments or hit up our tipline for future consideration.Read More
