“Fash­ion that does not reach the street is not fash­ion” – Coco Chanel

Emirates Woman - - Travel -


“Where do I go for the clothes?” Ju­lia Roberts fa­mously asked her friend in Pretty Woman. “Rodeo Drive, baby.” That is where you go, as it is re­tail ther­apy at its very best. From Bvl­gari, Burberry, Cartier, Ce­line, Chanel, Coach, Dior, Fendi, Gucci and many more – Rodeo Drive has it all and is every fash­ion­ista’s dream shop­ping haven. Just make sure to have very, very deep pock­ets and a sky-high credit limit.


Be­tween La Cienega Boule­vard and Fair­fax lies West Third, a district of food and fash­ion that can be ac­com­plished by foot (not usu­ally the case in car-heavy LA). From well-known brands to un­der the radar finds like Par­lia­ment and Mom’s The Word as well as eater­ies like Matcha Box (premium scoops right here) and Socker­bit (Scan­di­na­vian can­dies and gifts), West Third opens you up to a world of thought­fully de­signed stores for con­scious shop­pers who go by a live and be well ethos.


Known to be one of the trendi­est blocks in Amer­ica for its dozens of vin­tage and cre­ative bou­tiques, an­tique fur­ni­ture and fan­tas­tic restau­rants, it's the place to go if you want to grab a bite, hang out and of course shop. It also sits right next to the fa­mous Venice Beach. Post re­tail dip, any­one?


It is al­most un­heard of to hit Mel­rose Av­enue and leave without a pur­chase. Its ar­ray of swanky de­signer bou­tiques en­sures that. Be sure to pop into Cross­roads Trad­ing Co. It’s where you can ex­change cloth­ing and find ex­clu­sive vin­tage wear and an­tique goods. The cool walls work for some le­git­i­mate In­sta­gram shots too.


With a danc­ing foun­tain, fash­ion-for­ward cloth­ing and ever-chang­ing pop-up shops, this ul­tra-mod­ern out­door mall is a fash­ion­ista’s par­adise. Think DVF, Top­shop, J Crew, Michael Kors, Nike, Sephora, An­thro­polo­gie and more. Add to your ex­pe­ri­ence with a leisurely stroll or even a ride on the vin­tage trol­ley car.
