The clothes are organized by color. It might put off some people, but not me, since I do my own closet like this. Francesca (the ownerz0 is a wonder and will put together an amazing assortment of cool things to meet your needs.
They carry lines like: Angelic Genius, bluebird (that's how they spell it, with a lower case b) and Emanuella with jewelry by Brette.
PROS: Great service and great unique finds
It's like a Britney video in here, with Radio Disney music playing and your own private stylist.
Monkey Wear is their private line. It ranks right up there with the rest of the lines they carry: very high end and VERY L.A. So L.A. that they make custom dresses for bat mitzvahs and weddings (alterations are free as well). The clothes are for sizes 7-16, so you don't have to be overwhelmed with clothing that aren't what you need. And yes, they have free popcorn here.
Which I am. I have a 2 pound black & gold teacup Yorkshire terrier. I spoil him almost as much as my real child.
When you walk in, you almost think it's a children's boutique.You can buy matching clothes for you and your pup, which is really adorable. They even have dressing rooms for you to change your pup in, which I love. The owners understand how much you love your pup, which is a unique thing that not all people understand.
Make sure to get there early, though. This is on the same street as the Beverly Center, but they open late and close early.
My son loves the water. He wants to be an oceanographer. He wanted a snorkel, wetsuit, fins and all. Being from the East Coast, I had no clue where to turn. Luckily, the staff was patient and helped me outfit him. There was none of the attitude that I found at other shops. They also advised me of things to take my son to around the seaside (they're next to the Washington Street Pier).
For those that like to make sure that their children are runway ready from birth, this is the place. You might be put off at first glance by the store's country style looks, but the clothing and accessories on the walls and the racks will show you that you're in the right place. They also have many clothes made of 100% cotton, which is great for the baby...
CONS: they close at 5pm
This is a very high end place to buy outfits for both. The items here aren't cutesy, they're chic and modern.
They are very nice and helpful here. If you need help picking out presents, they are there for you. There is no attitude with the service, either. Wonderful!
*** For the cat lovers: they have things for kitty, too! ***
PROS: Gift wrapping
CONS: metered parking
It's always good to know that your skin/hair/body is in good hands. If not, the damage can be horrific.
Not only are the stylists and estheticians experienced but so was the receptionist! Sheila does a great job on skin and Judy is the "go to gal" for massages.
This is not a place that you have to spend a lot to get great service, I highly recommend it.
To me, the benchmark of a great waxer is their Brazilian.
It's a sensitive experience to say the least and you don't go back if it's not done correctly. Call and ask for Larissa, especially if this is your first time. She made my experience very comfortable (as much as it can be).
If you have skin problems, they can help you here as well.
If the ladies from Sex & the City were in L.A., you would have seen them here.
This is a wonderfully private, homey space. Sharon gave me personal attention at my visit and it makes a huge difference. She gave me some amazing tips and great advice which has really helped my skin. After my incredible facial my skin was glowing! The products she uses and sells are effective, very reasonably priced and do what they say they're going to do.
Make sure to catch their workshops and yoga!
CONS: Don't try to book for a Saturday
I'm not too interested in the usual spa services here. But they have some less well known ones, such as eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, lash perming and lash tinting.
I do the eyebrow tinting since I change my hair color several times a year. I don't trust myself to do it, and Victoria does a fabulous job.
