When it comes to shopping as consumers we have many different options and choices such as department stores, boutiques and discount stores. However living in Southern California there are many different sources of shopping, one of those sources is what I like to call as “Beach City Boutiques”. These little store along side the coast often offer cool little pieces that can give your shopping exprience a little bit of excitement and your wardrobe a little flare. Some of these stores still do share some of the same looks as others but the key is to really examine and explore what is out there.
Laguna Beach a fun cool beach city that offers a variety of cafes, restaurants, souvenier shops and boutiques. Amongst these boutiques you can find a few cool pieces for your wardrobe. Stores such as LF located in central/downtown of Laguna has amazing and funky cool fashions that sets it apart from other local stores. Other places such as Muse, down the street from LF, often carries some of the fashionable and trendy styles that the LA fashion scene has to offer. Diane’s swimwear is another one of those stores that is mainly known for swim suits however once you go in you can see alot of cool little trinkets such as jewelry, hangbags, and tees that can either be good gift ideas or fun little additions to your closet. Another great little hole in the wall place that I love to step into is Black Flamingo in south Laguna. This little hole in the wall boutique is probably smaller then your basic living room but filled with unique pieces and and edgy trendy vibe that gives the beach city a cool feel.
The trick to shopping at these stores is to examine and hunt. You need to look through the racks and inside the jewelry cases to find some of these treasures. And when you do, I highly recommend buying it right then and there. Some of these stores only carry certain pices and only a few of those pieces so when you get the chance I would jump on it!
