About Los Angeles, CA Shopping
Los Angeles is known for its to-die-for shopping scene, thanks in great part to Hollywood stars who always need the latest and greatest. Shopping districts are many, and trendy, upscale boutiques seem to be around ever corner. Savvy shoppers make the most of the city by planning before they indulge in retail therapy. If money is truly no concern, then stroll through the ultra-posh shops on Rodeo Drive, which is within the Golden Triangle (bordered by Santa Monica Boulevard, Wilshire Boulevard, and Canon Drive). Famous site of Julia Roberts' triumphant Pretty Woman
shopping spree, the venerated street boasts the finest retailers Cartier, Gucci, and Tiffany among them. Well-heeled hipsters prefer Robertson Boulevard (between Beverly Boulevard and Third Street). Impossibly cool clothing, makeup, and home decor shops line the street, including celebrity fave Kitson Boutique. Melrose Avenue (between San Vicente Boulevard and La Brea Avenue) caters to the same crowd; check out Von Dutch and Agent Provocateur. In the market for antiques? Check out Third Street (between La Cienega Boulevard and La Brea Avenue), a funky, eclectic area known for unique gift and specialty stores. While the sheer multitude of attractive boutiques and stores in LA is staggering and most of them are exclusive, upscale, and one-off to boot just focus on a few must-have items in your price range for a relaxed day of hitting the shops!
