Weekly Fashion Finds: The Perfect Outfit Guide

Date night? Girls night? Whatever the occasion we have the perfect outfit for you. The key is to know where to look. Maximize your shopping time in the alley by following this 3-step guide to finding the perfect outfit.

Step 1: Start by shopping for the clothes. It's incredibly easy to get distracted by all the accessory and shoe stores in the alley, but save those for later. Chances are you'll end up browsing through the jewelry and handbags all day. We have that many here! Stores tend to display their newest and/or most popular styles on their mannequins. This will give you a good idea of what's inside. When we're in a rush, we like going straight to Vickie's. We've featured her on this blog time and time again, but that's because she always has something new. The staff here is super friendly and fashion savvy, which helps too.

Step 2: Once you've got your outfit picked out move on to the accessories. There is an endless selection of fashion jewelry in the alley but many overlook what is one of the most affordable accessories here: handbags. Believe it or not this is where you'll get the most bang for your buck, as many stores run promotions all the time. $20 handbag anyone? It's the best way to complete any outfit!

Step 3: The shoes can make or break the outfit. The good news is the alley has the best shoe selection in LA, if we do say so ourselves. Every color, print, heel style, is here and most likely under $30. How can you not buy a new pair? And no, there is no way you can have a perfect outfit without new shoes ;)
