Best Place to Buy Designer Clothes Los Angeles 2013 


Many high-end stores will leave you feeling like a not-so-pretty woman, with sneering clerks everywhere and no Richard Gere in sight. At G*Star on Melrose, you get none of that crap. The entire staff is both friendly and beyond competent; everyone seems genuinely excited to help you find what you seek. Unlike the spartan floors of so many designer shops, G*Star is filled with options, yet it's not cramped. The racks of modern urbanwear are flanked by walls of apparel, including an entire wall lined with bins that might double as an altar to the denim gods. New-product parties feature in-house manicures and entertainment from the likes of Dallas Cornell and Nick V (formally known as DJ duo The Spys). G*Star on Melrose has found the perfect blend of upscale and down-to-earth. 7966 Melrose Ave., Beverly Grove, 90046. (323) 658-6028, g-star.com. —Diamond Bodine-Fischer

  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
