los angeles consignment stores | designlovefest
 image found here

as promised i’ve put together a list of my favorite los angeles consignment/second hand stores! my favorite ones offer a mix of new and vintage clothing items. the thing to remember with these stores is that some of them are hit or miss, just because you went once and didn’t find anything doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go back. also, it’s important that you have an open mind, be willing to try on lots of things without expectation, think outside the box when it comes to sizing as it has changed so much over the years, and try on things that might be unexpected, you never know what you’ll fall in love with! – joanie

The Left Bank – located in frog town, this is one of my favorites in the city partly because their stock is great and rotates all the time and partly because the owner is super sweet and i like supporting her. you should definitely follow her on instagram because she shares stories of what’s new and it always makes me want to stop in. this is your place if you like vintage denim, tees, 90’s rayon and cool accessories like belts and earrings.

Wasteland – there are multiple locations in the city but i think the studio city one is the best, it’s not as overwhelming as the one in west hollywood and i always seems to score. they have a specific section that is vintage and that’s generally where i head first but they have a great mix of new and vintage items. i also recommend checking out the men’s t-shirt and sweatshirt section. i snagged a vintage gucci sweatshirt there about 12 years ago and still love it to this day. worth stopping in if you’re in the area!

Style on Green – this is in pasadena and a completely different vibe than any of the others. it definitely caters to an older crowd, lots of St. John knits. but, that means that many of the other items get looked over. it’s hit or miss for me but used to be around the corner from my house so i stopped in often. i’ve scored many things but a highlight was a gorgeous wool wrap with a suede fringe by Chloe for $150.

Luxe De Ville – this is in echo park and i think it’s almost all vintage but they have a great prices and great pieces. this is where we got bri’s Dolly Parton costume! and i’ve also scored a 70’s black fringe dress and a 90’s floral wrap.

Foxhole – next to night and market in silver lake, this is the place to go if you love vintage denim! she has a great selection and she also does denim alternations. if you’ve ever found the perfect pair of vintage jeans and taken them to a tailor who totally ruined them you know how important it is to get your jeans altered by someone who knows their way around denim. the prices aren’t cheap but a good pair of jeans will last you a long time.

the now spa in LA | designlovefest

last night i had a party with 10 of my girlfriends at the now spa at their new silver lake location (they have 3 in LA now). they have definitely found a way to basically transport you to a relaxing day in tulum mexico for a massage on the beach. all the details of the spa are spot on, a crystal mandala mirror, the best smelling candles, fuzzy throws on the massage beds, simple and chic furniture…the now has got a special charm for sure. and did i mention the 50 min massages are $60!? such a good deal.

best movie dates in LA | designlovefest

los angeles is filled with movie buffs and we boast a long list of historic movie theaters that are perfect for catching a flick. we also have a bunch of cool venues that open up during the summer for outdoor screenings as well (more on that below!). here is a list of some of our favorite theaters in town! note: we haven’t listed any of those theaters where you sit in recliners and have food brought to you because truthfully, i don’t think it’s worth the much higher ticket price.

OUTDOOR MOVIES: ’tis the season for spending copious amounts of time outside in the sun and spending a warm evening watching a movie on a blanket with snacks and a drink is high on our summer to-do list.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery:  this place is a classic for outdoor movies, you can bring in your own food and drinks. buy tickets way in advance, they sell out and i recommend splurging for the VIP parking pass and splitting it between everyone in your car because then you don’t have to stand at the gates and wait, you drive on through and get a good spot for viewing.


Eat, See, Hear: They hosting screenings all across the city, it’s a mix of live music, film and food trucks!






los angeles is known as a shopping destination and for good reason. not only are we home to all of the major shopping retailers you might expect but we also have a great independent shopping scene. local designers and independent shop owners creating really well curated selections for everything from home goods to handbags. if you’re looking for great gifts, or to support local here are some of our favorite shops!


Alchemy Works: situated in the arts district downtown this shop has friendly staff who can help direct you to a great gift or a new pair of shoes for yourself. it’s proximity to our office is a problem because we can’t visit without wanting at least a thing or two!

Broome St. General Store: this place is part cafe, part gift shop. they have a great selection of home items everything from cooking staples, coffee table books, kitchen linens, etc. they have an extended location which is across the street and is definitely worth a visit as well!
