Searching for Lady Things in LA!

Hello savvy LA lady shoppers, male or female! My sister's boyfriend is visiting LA and would like to scope out some local lady stores/boutiques (clothes, jewelry, accessories) for a gift for my sister. He doesn't have a car, is in Venice, and can get to Santa Monica. Any suggestions for good places to hit?

What sculpture in LA looks like Chicago?

What is the large red sculpture in LA? I was watching Ruthless People and noticed the final ransom drop took place in front of a large metal sculpture. To my mind, this sculpture looks like the Flamingo sculpture in Chicago. The scene can't have been filmed in Chicago, so what's the name of this similar sculpture in LA?

Best Hollywood tour bus?

A dear friend from overseas is visiting me on her first trip to L.A... but unfortunately I'm going through a bit of a rough patch health-wise, and so can't help her sightsee as much as I'd like. She's expressed interest in hopping on one of the Hollywood bus tours while I get some rest over the weekend, but I have no idea which ones are best and which ones to avoid. Any former tourists to my fair city have any suggestions?

Help me plan a trip to Joshua Tree, CA

Help me plan a 3-day trip to Joshua Tree (CA). Or alternatively, suggest another really cool natural area to check out in Southern California in late January. I am in my cousin's wedding in the L.A. area and am coming with my girlfriend. We decided to take a few extra days--she's never been to California and I've only ever kept my visits to family time, usually in the OC area. We're renting a car, so we'll have transportation. Is late January a good time to go? Do you have any recommendations for gear rental (doubt I'll be able to climb, unfortunately)? I have gear at home in Michigan, but I'd like to travel light. If you have alternative suggestions--they can be around L.A.--I'd love to hear them. Thanks.
