Modern women have choices. One of the most precious of these options is how today’s woman expresses herself—urban sophisticated, bohemian princess, young trendsetter, jet-setting career woman, or active wife and mother. The Point in El Segundo is where every woman can find everything she needs to be her best self. As the premier open-air lifestyle shopping experience in the breezy South Bay, The Point is home to international, regional, and local brands that give shoppers exactly what they want; style, variety, and community in a surrounding of relaxed luxury.

Kit and Ace

Looks without limits is what Kit and Ace is all about. Minimalist, revolutionary lifestyle clothing for women and men, Kit and Ace will redefine how you wear clothes. Imagine a day at the office in a dress or pants as comfortable as weekend loungewear or as flexible as active wear with the sophistication and quality of the best contemporary brands. Forget stiff, immobile career wear of yore, these pieces move with you in fabric so soft and pliable you’ll want to keep wearing them after a long day. Get ready for fall with the 100 percent cashmere Newbury Scarf or dress up their best-selling Official Dress with a silver Pin Love cuff bracelet or dramatic Waldorf necklace. The intimates and swimwear are designed for visual impact and unrestricted movement.

No Rest for Bridget

Fashion and affordability never take a rest at No Rest for Bridget. A favorite new stop for the fashionista on the hunt for the latest looks with a timeless twist. With successful outlets on both coasts, No Rest for Bridget has gained a reputation as the go-to store when in need of a new look on a moment’s notice. Work, weekend, hot date, or all night party looks can be had with styles  that combine trend and practicality. An inventory that never takes a break from beautiful, you’ll find dresses for day or night, pants, jackets, accessories, shoes, bags, and even beauty and makeup. We love the Ashton Velvet Block Heel shoe paired with Wrap Front Maxi or Selena cold shoulder blouse for the perfect transitional fall look. Shop now, rest later.

Smitten Ice Cream

Shopping can work up an appetite, so recharge your batteries with pure, unadulterated goodness with an ice cream from Smitten Ice Cream. Untarnished and untainted, every bite is like the 4th of July. There’s a berry crisp sundae and even a vegan pop with coconut milk. Pack your favorite flavors in a handmade waffle cone or waffle cone bowl, and then pour on the Strawberry Prosecco or decadent TCHO Chocolate sauce. Toasted almonds, oatmeal cookie crumble, and organic whipped cream top off the masterpiece. Current seasonal flavors include creme fraiche with pear caramel, and earl grey with milk chocolate chips. All organic, all natural, all delicious.

Boho goddesses of the world rejoice, Planet Blue is here! Originally a small boutique of organic clothing, Planet Blue has blossomed into an international retailer dedicated to a beachy bohemian aesthetic. Featuring designers from across the globe in addition to the house Blue Life brand, you’ll find intriguing maxi dress for day or night, lace bell bottoms, vintage inspired looks like 90s floral dresses and iconic 70s wrap dresses. You must take a look at the stylist body jewelry and chokers, and what boho would be caught dead without earrings and bracelets? The Blue Life swimwear and cover-ups are simply to die for, and woven beach totes will keep you fashionable on a resort vacation.

Kendra Scott

Every outfit needs the right accessory, and every woman will be won over at Kendra Scott.  Inspired by experiences, travel, community, and the unrivaled splendor found in nature, Kendra Scott designs are a passport to distinctive artistry and beauty.

They also feature a Color Bar where you take the design to a more personal level, customized wedding palettes, and special charity events. Kendra Scott is a dedicated philanthropist and these events give back 20 percent on all purchases to charity.

Hopdoddy

Getting hungry? Good, because The Point has options. Hungry boys and girls head straight to Hopdoddy Craft Burgers & Beer. Beef comes only from humanely raised cows and is hormone and antibiotic free, ground in-house daily. Buns are made from scratch and Kennebec potatoes are used for the hand-cut fries. Salads are made from organic greens, and there is a vegan burger option. Real ice cream shakes with flavors such as Red Velvet Cake and Nutella & Chocolate Pretzel are beyond decadent. Artisanal brews and cocktails make Hopdoddy the perfect place to meet friends for happy hour or late night get together.

North Italia

North Italia is a love letter to Italy—a place that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped off a charming side street to discover a culinary gem. After a decade in business, they have learned a thing or two and now approach perfection in the art of handmade pasta and pizza. North turns a modern lens on traditional Italian cooking. Every day, North Italia starts from scratch to create dishes like Strozzapreti with Bloomsdale spinach or supple ribbons of tagliatelle for the Bolognese. North’s pizza is a revelation: an airy, barely chewy center embraced by a perfectly crisp crust. With the spirit of the Italian taverna, North is the place to talk shop over a cocktail or swap stories sharing delectable chef creations. Open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.

Sink your teeth into a Hippie Burger or Spice Charred Mary’s Chicken. Larger plate options include Smoky Lamb Ribs and Pan Roasted Seabass.
