Most people in the US do their shopping in malls or outlet centres. This is very convenient as these huge covered shopping centres are home to every major brand and label you could wish for. However, they often lack personality and originality. Fortunately, Los Angeles also boasts many fun streets packed with small boutiques, hip vintage shops and beautiful designer stores. Stylish shopaholics will surely leave with full shopping bags.
In Paris or Milan it often seems inappropriate to enter a chic shop without a fat wallet. In LA things are quite different. Sales people know that you can never tell who may just spend thousands of dollars, so everyone is made to feel welcome. It is fun to enter some of these fancy high-end shops, if only to have a look around. Because that is what shopping in these small streets is all about: browsing the wares.
