With my love of white brick walls and black leather jackets, sometimes I almost forget that L.A. is actually a bright, colorful place with tons of character. Our blue skies, palm trees, and Spanish-style architectural influences occasionally make the city feel more like a foreign dreamland than the traffic-ridden place where I grew up. This realization became glaringly evident upon my recent experience at Just One Eye boutique with Farfetch. Though the boutique is an L.A. staple, I had never visited before; it's hidden amongst the familiar, yet more industrial streets of Hollywood in Howard Hughes's old office building with barely a sign to alert you to its presence. The space inside is quirky, artistic, and filled with unique designer goods ranging from indie fashion labels to off-the-runway picks from Valentino and Gucci. Contrasting the modern boutique was the old-Hollywood courtyards of the building, complete with art deco tiles that look like they came straight from Tulum, while the green shrubbery gave the building a secluded, Beverly Hills-bungalow feel. Accordingly, I had to play around with my favorite Tulum-goes-to-Hollywood (if that's a genre?) style pieces at the boutique, picking out this breezy Lisa Marie Fernandez dress to go with my casual Chloé slides.
