One of my favorite shopping streets in LA is Melrose Avenue. The shopping turf extends from La Brea all the way to Robertson. The street is quite the shopping rainbow as there's something for everybody. Affordable trendy boutiques offering the newest styles that you won't find until weeks later at Forever 21 sit blocks away from Balenciaga and Fred Segal. Tons of vintage shops are sprinkled in between to satisfy all your retro inclinations.
Nowadays, as much as I don't want to think about eating on my Melrose shopping marathons, my body ceases to function when I engage in self-deprivation for too long. So, I head over to Marcona LA, a gourmet LA sandwich shop and fine foods purveyor offering an adventurous and affordable, yet upscale, option for lunch, a snack, or a quick bite. They combine the concept of a simple, East Coast sandwich shop with European culinary influences, and sweeten the deal with a variety of homemade bakery goods. It's quick and delicious fuel so you can keep your shop on!
