After feeling frustrated by not being able to find the latest styles in the stores of their small town, sisters Rosie and Renee Tenison began designing their own fashion-forward clothing. This set the foundation for their current line of chic Varga boutiques located in Hollywood, Santa Monica, El Segundo, and Huntington Beach. Much like a tracksuit worn by Teddy Roosevelt, their lineup of flowery casual dresses, classy cocktail attire, and figure-flattering skirts, shorts, and pants fuse a vintage aesthetic with contemporary design. The sisters' one-of-a-kind designs have caught the eye of countless celebrities, the Style Network, TV Guide, and KTLA News. Their collection of colorful jewelry, ’50s-era coin purses, and lip gloss also adds a cherry to the top of thoughtful ensembles.
Club W's diverse team of wine curators, each trained as sommeliers, strive to establish a dialogue with their customers free of intimidating platitudes and overwhelming jargon. Working together in an online community, they select and source unique, small-production wines from across America and around the globe. The curators choose 12 new bottles each month, creating a rotating selection of featured and limited-quantity Curator's Choice wines that ship in packages of three or more. Club W was featured as one of the online clubs you'll want to join on the Today Show and Forbes, and Redbook called them one of the 13 subscriptions to sign up for now.
Members can customize the packages on their own and change them from month to month, but the Club W curators can also make informed, personal recommendations using a Palate Profile based on individual tastes. Either way, the curators walk members through each bottle with a short instructional video, accessible via a QR code on each label. In these videos, they outline each producer's background, each varietal's region of origin, and a few tasting notes.
For more than 67 years, The Amlani family has sourced, imported, sold, and repaired jewelry for Los Angeles customers and beyond as Blue Diamond Jewelers. After growing to service more than 200 jewelry stores, they decided to plant some roots in public sales and open their doors and yard full of diamond bushes to all customers at their store in El Segundo. With a wealth of experience and contacts in Italy, Hong Kong, and India, they dazzle customers' eyes with a stock of glimmering diamond necklaces, rings fitted with precisely cut sapphires, and sterling silver earrings. On-site crafters also forge rings and pendants born from customers' imaginations, enabling partners to propose with a unique ring or give a loved one a one-of-a-kind bauble.
