Melrose Avenue is one of my favorite streets to shop on every time I come to LA, especially on a Sunday. It reminds me of Haight St. since it's a funky and hip retail strip with lots of culture and a vibe that's colorful and fun. There are a bunch of hipsters, vintage finds, and trendy shops that offer the same thing in different stores. However some select stores I absolutely love like Voom by Joy Han, Dita Legends, Betsey Johnson, Urban Outfitters, Wasteland and a bunch of boutiques that carry items you can find at Forever 21 are all here in this quirky street.
And if you head towards the West Hollywood side you'll find another Kitson Boutique and there's also the Urth Caffe right across which is a hip coffee & tea joint that is usually always crowded but is worth the wait- they have one of the best Iced Coffees and people watching is always interesting as it attracts locals and tourists of all kinds.
