From Clothing to Skincare, We’ve Got You Covered Shopping in Venice

Written By: Lyndsay Marvin Shopping in Venice

If Venice is known for only two things, it would be the beach and Abbot Kinney Blvd. Muscle Beach and the Boardwalk are world-famous faves, but Venice is so much more than that. While it has, and will always be a surfer/hippie town, it’s moving on up to chic and sophisticated. There are plenty of shops in Venice, ranging from juiceries to dog boutiques to cafes. However, we are especially interested in the clothing, accessories, and skincare shops. Whether you’re a Los Angeles local or a world-traveler, we’ve put together a list of boutiques you’ll be sure to love. So grab your almond milk latte, hop on your beach cruiser, and check out these 9 Venice shops we’re sure you’re going to love. Shopping in Venice

Alexis Bittar

This is the cute little gray house on Abbot Kinney that almost looks too quaint to be a fancy jewelry store. However, the moment you walk in, you realize you’re in a modern, yet timeless store, full of beautiful fashion jewelry pieces. If there’s any question of Alexis Bittar’s elegance, note the unicorn statue inside. It’s beautiful!
