San Francisco has its fair share of amazing shopping. In fact we'd say we have the the DIY, locally-made and sustainable—yet still totally fashionable—shopping market cornered. But Los Angeles, we must concede, has some retail opportunities that can't be beat.
We reached out to our Los Angeles Editor Leslie Price to find out what not to miss when it comes to SoCal shopping, and she's come up with a tempting list that will make you want to head south even if you weren't already planning a weekend getaway. You'll find everything from the amazing vintage L.A. is famous for at Shareen Vintage, the Rose Bowl's flea market bonanza and more, to big names like Topshop and Barneys, to fashion-forward faves like Opening Ceremony and Isabel Marant. Time to fill up that gas tank, create the perfect six-hour playlist, and throw some empty suitcases in the trunk—they will for sure come home bursting at the seams.
