When I'm on the West Coast and I have a free moment to shop around, I love to stop into one of these stores in Los Angeles.

But these days, one of the greatest things about shopping is that you don't necessarily have to be a certain part of the country to shop your favorite stores! Many of these stores have boutiques in other parts of the country or offer online shopping (perfect for holiday gift giving).

Here are my favorite Los Angeles stores and the reasons why I love them so much.

Planet Blue
They have great casual options. Tons of clothes in fun colors – everything from t-shirts to blazers. I could spend hours in here!

Satine
By far one of my favorite boutiques in LA that carries items that have been preselected and well curated.

Curve
They have a lot of great up-and-coming global designers in bold colors and prints. Items are handpicked from designer collections too!

Theodore
The store has a great selection of basic t-shirts and overall a good selection of items.
