Rodeo Drive. Need we say more?
This destination isn't the only fashion-related jewel in Los Angeles' crown, but it often seems that way. After all, where else would a major celeb shop to outfit themselves and their precious babes? A-listers like Reese Witherspoon are regularly spotted flipping through the racks at boutiques most of us can only dream of shopping at. Take some time to stroll the strip, but only dare to go "Pretty Woman" if you have the attitude and cash to back it up, OK?
After you're done living the good life on Rodeo Drive, take a cab to the L.A. Fashion District, which features 100 blocks of just about everything a shopper could want, from wholesale clothing and textiles to flowers. Vendors and shoppers often engage in mild negotiation to lower prices even further. Bear in mind -- the area is often crowded, and most storefronts don't feature private dressing rooms, so carefully weigh the trade-off of wholesale shopping if you're into champagne, first-rate customer service and private changing areas.
