No matter the reason for our travels—be it business, pleasure, or both—it’s always nice to carve out some time for quality shopping. So why not approach your next stopover like a true style insider? Travel + Leisure Magazine’s “Shop Like A Local” series has got you covered. They provide tips on navigating the best shopping districts in the top cities around the world, like Amsterdam, Morocco, Buenos Aires, and now, Los Angeles, who received a fashion-worthy nod in their latest September issue.
The magazine recruited L.A.-based jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer (married to Actor Tobey Maguire) to show readers her favorite spots around town. They include Violet Grey for all your beauty needs, Poppy for the kids, Farmshop to pick up gourmet groceries, Heath Ceramics (above) for heavenly home decor and gifts and Saint Laurent, where the space is as indulgent as the clothes. If you only have time for one stop, the tastemaker recommends heading to Barneys New York in Beverly Hills.
Meyer also highlights Rose Avenue in Venice and York Boulevard in Highland Park, two streets that proudly fly their “locally made” flags in both apparel and food. Visit their website to read the full article.
