And as much as I love that city, I don’t know it very well. So I’ve enlisted the help of everybody’s favourite L.A.-based blogger Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest, who has compiled a list of her favourite three unique boutiques.
And here’s what she has to say:
1. It seems every Saturday I get this itch. That itch is scratched when I enter Wasteland on Melrose Avenue. Looking for a pair of perfect black and white striped shorts, or perhaps a sequined vintage dress that is just your size? Well, now you know where to get one! (Photo found here.)
2. And doesn’t it seem like there is always an occasion to celebrate & a gift to give for it? To find the best little handmade trinkets in town, I head over to Reform School in Silver Lake. It is piled high with eco-friendly clothing, hand embroidered pillows & fantastic paper products galore! (Photo found here.)
3. Not too far from Reform School sits Lawson-Fenning. This little home decor shop is not to be missed! This shop provides me with endless inspiration as far as decorating my own Silver Lake abode goes. The furniture they chose is delicious to say the least, and the back room is stacked to the ceiling with coffee table books that will keep you busy for hours! (Photo found here.)
Thank you, Bri! Cannot wait to go exploring.
P.S. Fall in love with DesignLoveFest.
Those sound like awesome stores. Too bad I don’t have a trip to LA planned.
Oh how exciting! I’ve never been to LA. Lucky you! I guess it helps that you’re already on the west coast to begin with. Have fun!

Great post! I can’t believe that I’ve never been to Wasteland (yet!) but I hope to make a trip to LA next year, maybe for my birthday. I miss LA and SF. I love all these little shops that Bri picked. They’re definitely on my go-to list for when I finally make a trip down to LA!
