Silver Lake is one of the hippest neighborhoods in LA, home to good coffee and gorgeous shops full of very beautiful people. While we've visited Silver Lake a few times before, we're excited to share more about it on our blog this summer and add a neighborhood to our LA City Guide!
To kick it off, here are 5 of our favorite boutiques to help you know where to shop in Silver Lake, Los Angeles:
Dream Collective is a stunning shop to visit in Silver Lake, and their unique jewelry line is the perfect LA momento to bring home with you. Besides their own line, you'll find structured and minimalist clothing, well-crafted slides and clogs, and some apothecary and ceramics for the home.
Silver Lake is on LA's Eastside, meaning it's a bit of a trek to get to the beaches on the westside. But not to fear, Mollusk Surf Shop can still fit you with the perfect surf board while you're in Silver Lake, and there's also a great selection of apparel that is so not your typical "surfer bro" style.
3. Kill Spencer
Despite the year-round sunshine, LA locals are obsessed with wearing all black, and all black leather. Kill Spencer fits in perfectly with their amazing collection of leather goods. Everything from the health-goth-chic black leather backpack, to the baseball hats and travel kits, will have you reaching for your new favorite item to love forever.
Our new favorite shop is LACAUSA, where you'll find clothing that is "California comfort" and all made under ethical conditions right in Los Angeles. Their flagship store also carries goods from other local artists and designers, so you're sure to fall in love with multiple items on your first visit (and it won't be your last!).
Finally, when it comes to where to shop in Silver Lake, this might be an odd one. But we love it! Spice Station is this semi-hidden store with a gorgeous courtyard that is full of so many amazing, gourmet spices and smells. It's actually one of the world's best spice shops, which is apparently a thing? Anyway, definitely a unique shop to visit in Silver Lake!
We're expanding our LA City Guide and adding new neighborhoods this summer, so let us know where we should go next in the comments!
