Melissa Magsaysay, fashion writer and author of "City of Style," shares her stylish hidden gems in LA.
1. 3rd St Farmer's Market
An L.A. landmark, the historic Farmer's Market is like a modern day bazaar filled with every kind of food. It's the perfect place to stroll around and pick up fresh produce or sit down for a hearty meal and do some great people watching.
2. Terrace at the Sunset Tower Hotel
This hotel is a must for anyone who loves Art Deco architechture and detail. The Terrace is open and airy, with amazing views of the sity. I can't think of a better place in L.A. to sit on a warm day with a glass of Rose in hand
I love perusing the racks in this airy, light filled space. They stock an impressive array of under-the-radar designers and well-edited accessories that are much more classic than trend driven
4. Axe Restaurant
Everything at Axe is fresh, seasonal, healthy and above all, tasty. They are incredibly creative with seasonal fare and the garden out back is perfect for an afternoon glass of wine
5. Scent Bar
For beauty junkies like me, Scent Bar is a great place for discovering new brands or revisiting some old favorites. If you're still on the search for your signature scent, Scent Bar is great at working with customers to find exactly what suits them.
