On the Prowl for Summer



When starting to compile our list for “summer essentials,”  our first priority was finding the perfect bathing suit. We did some research and we heard great things about Canyon Beachwear in Beverly Hills. After making our way down there we were less than impressed to say the least! The selection was small and wasn’t anything to write home about. Therefore, we are still on the hunt for the perfect swimsuit – along with all the perfect pairings! So stay tuned…. your “summer essentials” list will be coming soon.

We want to hear from you: What are your favorite Los Angeles bikini shops and summer essentials (flip flops, beach bags, self tanner…)?  Comments please!

The Brentwood Country Mart – from Country Clubbers to Hippie Mothers

The Brentwood Country Mart is definitely a place to see and be seen! This is a popular spot for locals and celebrities alike to stop for some shop and nosh. The atmosphere evokes a mid-western barn, but the stores strictly speak Los Angeles high style. The Mart has a food courtyard with surrounding stores that sell everything from women’s, children’s, and men’s clothes to books, candy, and home furnishings.

Brentwood Country Mart


The Brentwood Country Mart is one of the first of its kind to have a chic, preppy, yet casual, men’s boutique, called apartment number 9.

 For jewelry, there is Broken English and Pippa Small jewelry that both sell beautiful one-of-a-kind looks.

 For home and fragrance, we love Calypso Home for gorgeous, unique home furnishings and Marie Mason Apothecary where you can splurge on fragrances, bath, and more.

And probably the most exciting… for women’s clothing, we love Calypso, Post 26, and Jigsaw. Calypso boasts a mix of international accessories and supremely chic pieces from high end-fashion designers including the original designer, Calypso by Christiane Celle. Post26 provides a fun environment for eclectic clothing for every shopper from rockers to bohemians. London-based Jigsaw is a great store for anytime fashion—the weekend, the office, and the evening.

 The Brentwood Country Mart: 225 26th Street (corner of 26th and San Vicente), Santa Monica, CA 90402
