Being a fashion editor, I find myself frequently visiting boutiques for research. If I really dig the place, the innocent work trip quickly turns into a personal retail therapy sesh, and suddenly I'm sifting through racks for potential closet conquests. (It all happens so fast!) To avoid feeling overwhelmed, I narrow down my choices to three items that I'm really feeling, eventually settling on one key piece. I'm debuting a new feature here to salute that process, starting with my Top 3 at Growze on Larchmont.
I first wrote about this Japanese-bred boutique here after attending the Taylor Jacobson-hosted grand opening. I like that they're always replenishing inventory with pieces that range from bold to basic, so every visit holds a new treat. Another bonus: it's on the same street as my go-to hippie eatery, Cafe Gratitude. This little white shorts suit in tweed has serious spring staple potential, no?
I also fell pretty hard for this graphic bomber jacket, which is definitely having a Prabal Gurung spring 2012 moment.
I eventually settled on this intense knit situation because I'm always looking for fancy tops to pair with my ever-growing plethora of dress shorts and miniskirts.
On another note, if you find yourself in Santa Monica today, swing by this shopping soiree that I'm hosting at Fred Segal with my friends at ASTARS and Alpinestars by Denise Focil. Free booze and manis, kids!
