Searching for Lady Things in LA!
January 6, 2012 9:34 AM   Subscribe

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?

Lots of great boutiques on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Make sure he stops at Intelligentsia for great coffee in a little slice of hipster paradise.

Yes, Abbot Kinney is the place. There are tons of great little shops along that street. Two I can highly recommend: Just Tantau--has great jewelry and accessories that are unique and artsy, but generally reasonably priced; and Altered Space Gallery, which also has nice, unique jewelry, art and other appropriate items for gifts, and is a bit higher priced usually, however I think they are having a sale this weekend.

Does he have a price range? How old is your sister?

Main St Santa Monica has a lot of good shops.

Response by poster: Not sure what the price range is, but I think he's willing to spend to get her something nice. Sister is 35.

Planet Blue in particular on Main St has really great stuff, but it isn't cheap.
