Los Angeles – Shopping & Fashion

The Glitz and Glamour: Shopping in Los Angeles

Los Angeles has a shopping experience for everyone. The styles include chic and down to earth. Fashion is Los Angeles’ key to its diversity. If you want glitz and glamour, the number one, quintessential place to shop, or even be a tourist at, is Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. It is a world-famous 3 block long stretch of Los Angeles’ best and most expensive shops and boutiques. One example is Bijan at 420 Rodeo Drive. It is the most expensive boutique in Los Angeles that features $50 socks and $50,000 suits.

If you’re looking for something very different, that only Los Angeles can have and pull off, visit Chinatown which is located to the south of Dodger Stadium right across the 110 Harbor Freeway. There are numerous shops and restaurants from the modern American to the old historic Chinese fare. Every turn shows a different side of Chinatown. The area of Chinatown, this includes the old Chinatown and the new Chinatown Mall, has been inhabited by the Chinese-Americans since about 1870. On just this side of strange, Wacko, a shop located on Hollywood Blvd., has an eclectic array of everything anyone would need that’s strange and arty including Dirty Girl Bubble Bath, just to name one.
