24 hours in LA? I got you ?? Here are my must stop places for fashion + food on the on both sides of the 405.
Start your day in West Hollywood on my fav street Melrose Place. Grab an oat milk latte and avocado toast from locals obsessed coffee shop Alfreds.
Melrose place has everything from Mansur Gavriel to Isabel Marant but be sure not to miss cult beauty shop Violet Grey!
Continue into BH for lunch at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel for the very overpriced but delicious McCarthy chopped salad. I still have no idea how they chop everything so fine ??♀️. Pro tip- get the truffle fries!
Head down to the Westside, first stop The Palisades. You must head to shopping mecca, Elyse Walker. It’s both designer and contemporary wrapped in one boutique.
Next if you’re like me – grab an afternoon sugary pick me up which will give me energy to keep me shopping into the evening. I’d suggest heading to Abbot Kinney for a Blue Star Donuts while your stroll the street.
Around sunset head to the ocean and dip your toes in the sand down in Venice beach. Watch the skateboarders and roller skaters as entertainment.Post sunset, take can evening stroll back up to Abbot Kinney for an incredible dinner at Felix or Gjusta (make a res ahead of time!) and end the night with a scoop of ice cream at Salt n Straw!
