The Valley

Dari

A luxe hippie vibe pervades this valley favorite, flush with flowy dresses by 3.1 Phillip Lim, Sass & Bide sparkly tunics, and Miguelina lingerie-inspired frocks. Make sure to hit the store's biannual blowout sales, set for the day after Christmas and at the end of June.

Ruthie

The uncommonly good mix of casual basics (C&C California T-shirts, and jeans by E.D. J. Denim Purists) and evening looks (floor-sweeping dresses by Mara Hoffman) keeps us coming back to this spot, outfitted with glossy cement floors, brushed chrome racks, and a tranquil atrium, where you can unwind after trolling.
