Tell us your favorite boutique in Los Angeles…

kathryn: I love Elaine Kim on Third Street in West Hollywood. Elaine is almost always there with her tailor working in the back of the boutique. She has amazing pieces that remind me of a cross between Helmet Lang and The Row.  She will make custom pieces in any color and she will bring out fabric and her tailor right on the spot!

After a long day of shopping, where do you like to grab a bite?

kathryn: I prefer to eat vegetarian with a little bit of fish in my diet, so I like healthy restaurants the best. A Votre Sante in Brentwood is my favorite place for lunch because their egg dishes and salads are so healthy with no oil or butter. For dinner, I love Soho House for the lighter menu items and the best ambiance. I crave the Kale salad and Quinoa salad with a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc at least once a week. And sitting on the patio and enjoying the view of LA never gets old!
