Time Out is fairly new to the alley. Their style is similar to Simone Fashion (also in the alley) in that their clothing is very casual with a Cali-cool, laid-back style. We love their t-shirts and t-shirt dresses :) Scroll below to see current styles and make your way over to Santee Alley. The Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off Sale is happening all week!

Fall Prints and Boyfriend Jeans at Meikayla - New Women's Fashion Store in Santee Alley

Meikayla, a women's fashion wholesale and retail clothing store, opened in Santee Alley earlier this month. It is actually the sister store of T&J Fashion Mart, a family-owned casual clothing business that's been operating out of Downtown LA for many years. Meikayla offers more trendy, boutique-style clothing than T&J, but we were happy to find the same friendly customer service that's made T&J so popular. Currently Meikayla is stocked with a mix of end-of-summer and early fall fashions ranging from matching 2-piece skirt sets to jackets and boyfriend jeans. In fact they have the cutest boyfriend jeans we've seen in the alley recently, perfectly distresses and cuffed! Scroll below for a photo tour of the store and current inventory.

How cute are the prints on these dresses/tunics? They're the perfect transitional piece for this in-between-summer-and-fall weather.

See^^ We weren't kidding about those boyfriend jeans. Super cute! They also have the ever popular terry joggers.

Fall sweaters and jackets are starting to make an appearance in the alley. Meikayla, along with most Santee Alley, stores will be fully stocked with fall fashions in the next couple weeks.

Santee Alley Favorite: Heels!

One of the best things to shop for in Santee Alley (wholesale and retail)? Heels! The alley is THE place for women's footwear in the LA Fashion District. While there is no "footwear sub-district" in the Fashion District, the alley is easily the area in the district with the highest concentration of shoe stores for men, children, and especially women. The women's shoe stores in the alley are lined top-to-bottom with the most popular shoe trends and must-haves for the season. Santee Alley shoe vendors are usually importers, manufacturers, distributors, or a combination of all three. You are buying direct from the source, which keeps prices down. The average price for heels in the alley is $25-30, while sandals are usually less than $20, and the average price for boots can go up to $35.

Not sure where to start shopping? We suggest I Heat Fashion at 1021 inside Santee Alley. It is located near the Santee Alley entrance at Olympic Boulevard, between Maple Avenue and Santee Street.

Hello Boot Season! Fall Boot Trends at Santee Alley

Though it certainly doesn't feel like it here in sunny Southern California, summer is coming to an end in exactly two weeks which marks the official start of boot season! Or as some people like to call it "fall". The Santee Alley's stores already have the season's must-haves in stock, as well as the traditional fall staples. We're seeing a return of the combat boot in ankle and knee length styles. In fact, we've spotted A LOT of knee length styles, and we're predicting it will be a big trend this season. Even the gladiator sandals are taking it to next level (see below). A few other trends that will be big this season: multiple buckles, open-toe booties, and lace-up heels.

All shoes featured in this post can be purchased at I Heart Fashion, located at 1021 Maple Ave. inside the alley. For pricing and purchase inquiries please contact the store directly at 213-742-8919.
