I get countless e-mails from people visiting Los Angeles asking for store recommendations. While it’s rather difficult to give just one place, I do have an area that’s filled with my favorites that I wanted to take some time to share. Melrose Place is a great place for visitors to shop because everything is within a 2-3 block radius. You can shop, eat and play all within walking distance.
Zimmermann // 8468 Melrose Pl, West Hollywood, CA 90069 // You can likely find a meter outside of this adorable Australian brand store that offers a healthy selection of dresses, resort and one of the best dressing rooms in Los Angeles. Located just across the street is the infamous Nine Zero Salon who are known for their “braid bar.” Call ahead and make an appointment and you might luck out in spotting a celeb or two.
The Apartment by The Line // 2nd Floor, 8463 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069 // Warning: This place is going to tempt every sense in your body to purchase, purchase purchase. From home decor to the latest and greatest in fashion, this is hands down my favorite place to pit stop along Melrose Place. It hurts my heart, because I want everything this store has to offer. It’s set up like an actual apartment, where everything is for sale. The only downside is the price tag. You absolutely must see this store but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The Row // 8440 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069 // No pictures please! Or at least that is what the salesman yelled at me as I snuck in a shot or two at one of the most luxurious brands on Melrose Place, The Row. Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s store may break the bank, but it’s very easy on the eyes.
Violet Grey // 8452 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069 // This is hands down my favorite store for cosmetics and beauty. The carefully curated selection of what is new to the beauty scene keeps me in the loop on all things related to skin care.
Isabel Marant //8454 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069// This little spot gives off a boutique vibe while still holding down the household Isabel Marant name. I love coming here just for the entrance, the cute little garden out front provides the perfect entrance to this unique storefront.
Clare V // 619 N Croft Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90048 // Clare V is one of my favorite places to buy handbags and clutches. I have purchased a few flat clutches here which I use religiously and a black circle handbag that is great for every season. Whenever I am looking to buy a new bag I pop on over to this store!
