…now it was an extremely warm day last week when I had to venture over the hill (Mulholland) and into the valley to run an errand. I was dreading it because of the heat, but part of me was secretly excited because it was an excuse to go check out some of my favorite Studio City boutiques – one of them being Stacey Todd.
I have shopped here numerous times, picking up special pieces here and there, both for my closet and for our apartment. Combining the clothing boutique with the attached home store, you truly have an amazing one stop shop.
I love the ambiance of the store as it is so cozy, warm, and friendly. The dark hard wood floors mixed with the white paneled walls give way to the perfect stage to display all things beautiful…Barbara Bui, Rick Owens, Band of Outsiders, Helmut Lang, Stella McCartney, and more. Each designer gives a great performance, especially right now, as we are in that tricky season transitioning from Summer to Fall. (Even thought it was scorching out, I did manage to find my Fall must have coat!) Adding to the scenery are beautiful oversized mirrors, big open windows, and towing orchids on a table of denim (JBrand, Currant Elliot, and Levi’s). The jewelry and accessories were also featured throughout the boutique including a black leather Alexander Wang handbag that wouldn’t stop starring at me. It was hard to look away.
Walking into the home section, things light up a little bit with bright colored textiles and hand woven rugs. There is also a great selection of house wares that feel a bit French with a dash of vintage – my fave kind! And of course, there are the heavenly Diptique candles that are perfect for any hostess or birthday girl.
Needless to say, you can do some damage in this store, no matter what the weather is outside!
