Signature Boutiques

Passion for interpreting runway looks for real women, personal attention and styling, a California state of mind. The independent shops of El Paseo add diversity and a unique array of styles to the street. With a fiercely devoted clientele and the freedom to cater to their every whim, these signature boutiques sparked a scene that has attracted global designers and retailers for decades.

The designer-owned Candice Held boutique prompts frequent pop-ins with limited-edition prints and one-of-a-kind scarf-inspired dresses. BB.one taps into "destination dressing" as the Mela Purdie line from Australia takes understated luxury on the go. Exclusive to the store, its maintenance-free mousseline fabrication with airflow technology lets you wash, hang dry, and wear. A personal wardrobe-building appointment helps you fill in your closet's gaps.

Wardrobe Staples

Names you trust, fits you know, seasonal staples and sales. Sometimes you need a simple white top, a go-to black pant, a new pair of flattering jeans. Sometimes you just want to fill up a dressing room and reinvent yourself.

Shoes + Sunglasses

Shoes that walk a million miles, shades that shield the desert sun, finishing touches that pull it all together. When you step out in a new pair of sunglasses or shoes that look as good as they feel, life's worries can't touch you. You're invincible.

The success of Cactus Flower Shoe Salon lies in staff education. Their mission: a shoe that babies your foot. Personal shopping services aim for a match made in shoe heaven. This season, new handbags, hats, and jewelry join new Italian shoe lines including Butter. Leathers and materials for Butter's kitten heels, block-heel pumps, embellished ballerina flats, and booties are curated by Italian artisans for impeccable fit and quality.

Distinctive frames by Oliver Peoples have built a brand obsession since 1987. Each eyeglass or sunglass frame is handcrafted with keen attention to detail in a technical process blending state-of-the-art machinery with the human touch. The culture of Los Angeles — infused with fashion, film, art, and music — is at the core of Oliver Peoples' DNA.

This score is between you and your credit card, which thanks you kindly for the retail price it did not endure.
