Happy LA

Easy wardrobes that don't compromise style and sophistication

The one thing LA is not lacking is shopping. That said, huge department stores are overwhelming and boutiques are usually pretentious and intimidating. A few weekends ago I went with my fashion consultant (aka cousin - Gina) to Happy LA, a boutique tucked away in the beautiful Pacific Palisades, and I haven't stopped thinking about this little gem since. Actually, I've been visualizing a "Happy SF" version to service us northern Californians. Happy LA has (1) a great layout for easy shopping, (2) uncomplicated and sophisticated styles, and (3) stylists who are over the top accommodating. I purchased a great shirt designed by Happy LA and have received numerous compliments. If you are in the area, stop by.

  3. did you get the vneck shirt? it sounds like a good store :)

  4. Hi! This sounds amazing, I will need to check it out next time I'm in SoCal!

    I'm your newest follower!


  5. This looks like a great little spot Marcie. I do love the smaller ones that aren't overrun by insanity, especially at this time of year. And Pacific Palisades is a wonderful neighborhood, too...far, far away from the dreaded mall!! I can't believe it was horrible already (glad you made it out alive!)

    Happy Monday!

  6. This sounds like a great store! I'm in the Palisades a lot, so I'll definitely stop in and check it out sometime soon. Your new year's plans sound awesome, Marcie. I welcome any opportunity to spend holidays in comfy clothes. I'm such a scrooge, but I usually don't do anything for New Year's. Gabe's always working and it's just easier to stay home and avoid all the chaos. So I'll probably be in my sweats too this year!


  7. Hmmmm
