Tell us your favorite boutique in Los Angeles…
allie: I love the edited selection at Satine – while I am a jeans and t-shirt girl at heart I also love to get dressed up and the boutique has a great range of flirty dresses, great accessories, and of course my favorite tees and tanks. I also love Zimmermann – the Robertson boutique features their amazing swimsuits, coverups and summer dresses.
Outside of Los Angeles, what is your favorite city to shop and what boutique do you frequent?
allie: Outside of Los Angeles I love shopping in Florence. I have traveled there a lot with my family and I eagerly await my trips so that I can head to Pineider – an Italian paper goods store that is filled with amazing note cards, leather goods and fun accessories. They offer the most charming thank you notes, wallets, organizers and of course…handbags.
For online shopping, what sites do you frequent?
allie: I have made a daily habit of checking Shopbop.com – they really have done a great job of offering an amazing selection of brands while also showcasing fun new trends, styling ideas and more.
After a long day of shopping, where do you like to grab a bite?
allie: I live right off Melrose Place (dangerous area considering Isabel Marant’s first LA store is on its way!) so I love going to Sweet Lady Jane for coffee after wandering the area. The pastries and coffee are so fantastic…I grew up going there with my grandmother after our shopping excursions so it’s really special.
Paige is hands down our favorite denim line out there!! Tell us what Paige style your wearing for Spring…
allie: My favorite style for Spring has to be the Keighley wash from our new collaboration with Liberty. Paige sifted through hundreds of prints from their archives and this floral pattern is so fresh and flirty yet the cream background of the print manages to be a great neutral at the same time.
