I know I'm not the only person in LA who's thrilled that Splendid opened it's first retail outpost on Robertson today. I was lucky enough to be among the chosen few to get a sneak peek of the boutique yesterday and I love it, as expected. I wish it could be my personal closet and I could just run up there every morning to start my outfit with some beautiful basics or one of their signature stripes. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors fold open, bringing the outdoors in, inviting you into a bright, colorful and comfortable environment. The wall of living vegetation at the entrance is really cool, and I'm obsessed with the super-soft fabric curtains in the dressing room and the throw pillows throughout the store. The space is a perfect setting to house the brand's full roster of collections: Splendid, Splendid Mills, Splendid Mills JR, Splendid Girl and Splendid Littles (currently making up a large part of my baby boy's wardrobe).
Of course, I couldn't walk out empty handed. Observe the latest addition to my Splendid wardrobe, the Lurex Rugby Top, plus more store photos after the jump…
If you're in LA you can buy this top and slew of other stylish essentials at the new boutique. But for all the shoppers outside Tinseltown, buy the Lurex Rugby Top at
ShopBop and shop Splendid.com to get your fix.
P.S. If you somehow missed the numerous Tweets I ran about the Splendid and Ella Moss Warehouse Sale this weekend in LA, here are the deets: Nov. 20-22, 2009, Friday + Sat 9-4 and Sunday 10-3, Cooper Building, 860 S. Los Angeles St., 8th flr.
