Best Place to Shop for Women's Clothing Los Angeles 2012 

American Rag Cie

This La Brea Avenue institution is probably best known for its denim bar (everything from Hudson to Adriano Goldschmied, so long as you like yours skinny) and racks of new, midrange designer stuff: Rag & Bone, 10 Crosby by Derek Lam, T by Alexander Wang. But American Rag Cie is far more than that -- a curated sort of one-stop shopping for a certain sort of stylish L.A. girl. There are structured Vivienne Westwood blazers, Elizabeth & James shoes, and glorious handbags. There are sunglasses and jewelry and belts. There are even men's clothes, but who's looking? In the back of the store, there's also an impeccably curated selection of ladies vintage: clean, ready-to-wear midcentury bathing suits, a long rack of cocktail dresses mostly priced below $100 each, and a bevy of A-line summer skirts available for less than $50 each. Whether old or new, every last piece here is stylish. 150 S. La Brea Ave., Hancock Park. (323) 935-3154, amrag.com.
