Chamilia jewelry kits facilitate wrist expression with bracelet bases designed to string up unique charm-style beads. Silver-rope ($55) and metallic-leather ($35) bracelet starters feature snap closures that keep sculpted orbs from running off to a scandalous career as a marble, and solid and flex bangles ($65) accommodate focal beads on a more rigid frame.
For clients looking to have CPR performed on fading heirloom pieces, the skilled jewelry craftsman at The Queen's Jewels is on hand to take ailing ornamentations under their wing. Repaired chains unleash their unfettered melodies (starting at $12), resized rings snugly hug fingers once again (starting at $35), and confusing midnight brunches are averted with replacement watch batteries ($8). Before leaving the store, each treasured piece is inspected by the storeowner for total quality assurance.
One Step at a Time owner Charles Cope channels his lifelong love of running into an emporium for athletic shoe, apparel, and energy products. Runners and walkers alike can slip into a snug pair of Thorlos Experia socks ($11.95), support the arches with original Powerstep insoles ($29.95), or block out glares from jealous, stroller-bound babies with an Asics running hat ($18). Running and walking shoes ($75–$130) by popular brands such as Brooks, Mizuno, Asics, and New Balance jump off the shelves to outfit feet in need of a comfy, high-performance home, and custom fittings are available for those with thin, wide, or excessively normal feet. Cope provides attentive customer service within the white walls of his welcoming shop, utilizing 50 years of running experience to help pavement pounders find the shoes and accessories that fit each individual's personal exercise habits.
The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.
But what many don't know about the brand?despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase?is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
Originally opened in 1927, the Genesee Theatre slowly deteriorated over the course of the century until its closing in 1989. But starting in 2001, a $23 million cash infusion from the city allowed 120 volunteers to restore the theater to its Gilded Age splendor. Its elegant trappings include authentic wall fabrics, an exact replica of the original marquee, and a 2,200-pound chandelier that gently spotlights the grand lobby and every audience member passing underneath to show how everyone is a star if you really think about it.
