The ultimate antidote to the mass-produced, unimaginative women's clothes choking much of the chains these days can be found at Velouria, where independent West Coast designers rule. Much on offer is one-of-a-kind: step in to this exquisitely feminine shop to find handmade, '70s-inspired jumpsuits; romantic, demure eyelet dresses; and clever screen-printed tees. Superb bags, delicate jewelry, and fun cards and gifts are also on display. It's worth a look just to check
out all the wearable art.
