Your Local Fashion Guide to Dubai: #localstores
West LA Boutique, located in Sunset Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road, is without a doubt one of the coolest local fashion stores around town. Whether you live in Dubai or are visiting for a short time, you should absolutely visit if you are on the lookout to shop cool items you won't be able to find back home (or anywhere else in Dubai).
When you walk into the store there's a super cool vibe and a ton of trendy, cool and nevertheless also classic pieces all around - you'll need to spend at least an hour going through everything in there. To make all that even better, the price point is super fair. Shopping in Dubai tends to be pretty expensive (not to mention everything else in Dubai), so finding good-quality, trendy and affordable pieces really makes shopping here worth it.
If you're wondering why it's called West LA (in Dubai), well the owner used to live in Los Angeles for a while and when she moved back to Dubai, she struggled to find the same sort of relaxed, cool, find-it-all shopping experience. She personally thinks the mix works well because there are similarities between LA and Dubai city-life: you've got the chilled-out beach side and you've got the glam side. We agree.
One of the things you'll notice when you visit the store is that they way the staff interacts with you is totally like you're shopping with your bestie. If an outfit looks good, they'll say it looks good. If an outfit just doesn't look good, they will tell you the truth. Also, all the pieces in the store and one-off pieces in each size - at least you'll leave knowing that you snagged something no one else anywhere will likely be wearing.
