Vintage clothes galore in Melrose Av, Hollywood

This weekend we headed for Hollywood once again, but this time, we walked all over Melrose Avenue. I think this is my favorite place so far. There're lots of vintage stores and cool clothing stores, as well as bars and restaurants. Here's a selection of the spots that caught my eye.

American Vintage is one of the first stores we went to. They have a respectable selection of items, but it's too cramped in there. And one of the employees burped right when we were walking past the teller ...

A block away there's Wasteland. My favorite section was the vintage shoes one!

There's another store called American Vintage which was probably the biggest and my favorite one.

There are many colorful and appealing stores and street art on Madison Avenue.

We caught a band jamming at Goorin Bros., a hat store.

We stopped at a pub for drinks where they played "Alright" by Supergrass. It reminded me of the old days when Val and I would go to Brit pop parties and listened to our favorite bands :).

We then did some more window shopping and later went to Little Tokyo. I'm afraid I've already posted too many pictures, so no Little Tokyo pics here.

Hope you all had a great weekend, too! ;)

I love the look of the white brown dress in the second photo and all the shoes. Is everything really expensive? Vintage here in SOuth Australia is so costly :S

crazy!!! I loved seeing pics of the vintage shops! Thanks for taking them. The window displays were cool - and I love the maniquin on the motorcycle. Totally gave me an idea for a window display at lune. Wish you were close enough to come by our shop too! I'd probably bump into you too, but I'm so big, I'd probably knock you right down at this point! lol
