Tell us your favorite boutique in Los Angeles…

jk: My favorite boutique in Los Angeles is a tie between Maxfield and Satine. Maxfield, because its the most cutting edge retailer in terms of high fashion. Maxfield has always been at the forefront of educating consumers on new fashions and labels. I love Satine’s diverse selection of progressive yet wearable pieces. They have a great in house label too.
