If I haven’t mentioned that I love to shop in any of my previous posts, let it be known, I love to shop! I especially love to travel and then shop wherever we are visiting. The most recent trip was for my husband’s 40th birthday when we travelled to LA and rented a home in the Hollywood Hills. How much fun did we have?! Well besides the Coldplay concert, the shopping was my favorite part! We went with another couple and lucky for me, Kelley likes to shop too. We thought about Rodeo Drive but knew we wouldn’t be able to afford anything so instead we went to Melrose because I wanted to go to Dash. I had been there once before with my family because my daughters are big fans of the Kardashians. I knew I liked that store and it was a good starting point. We took a Lyft to get there which was perfect because neither one of us wanted to drive down that skinny, winding Grandview Road. We arrived before Dash opened and wanted a little breakfast anyway, so it was perfect, we found a perfect spot called Sweet Lady Jane. What a charming little bakery. After a little sustenance, we started shopping. Dash was quiet so we had the store to ourselves. If you haven’t been there, it’s really an ordinary boutique selling brands I’ve seen in other stores, like Rails and Chaser. It’s definitely a higher price point than I carry in my boutique. I found a perfectly on-trend bomber jacket which was on my list of things to find. It is Kendall & Kylie brand which I’m not totally crazy about wearing their brand since I’m in my 40s but I thought the jacket was cute. We stopped into several shops, but my favorite by far was Glamboutique. They had a great collection of comfy everyday lounge wear, scarves, jackets, jeans and I found a leather woven hobo bag that was To Die For! I wanted to buy many things but had to control myself. Next we hit Freg Segal and what an experience that was. It was beautiful on the outside with the sign covered in vines and the inside was unique with different brands separated into little shops. I was impressed with the brands and the selection, but it was definitely pricey. We spent a lot of time at Gregory’s, a shoe boutique on the back side of Fred Segal. The shoes were divine and Kelley and I tried on almost every style. I would highly recommend shoe shopping there if you’re looking. What a fun trip! We’ll definitely go back to that area to shop and eat again.
