Boldly printed on the back her varsity jacket, Jeannie Lee, owner of LA’s super boutique Satine, has SUPREME style. I was really happy to meet her in NY during February’s snow storm (she’s so sweet, gracious and patient) and to snap her again in Paris. I’m totally inspired by how she’s perfected her graphic-infused, preppy-glam and quirky style. So, a couple weeks ago when I was daydreaming about my family’s LA vacation, WE ARRIVED LAST NIGHT, I shot her an e-mail and asked her for a list of her favorite spots. Please enjoy the pics and check out her list the next time you are planning a trip to LA.
JEANNIE’S LA MUSTS:
YOGA: Moksha hot yoga. You have never really experienced sweat until you try this class. It has changed my life.
COFFEE: Fōnuts serves baked vegan donuts and LA Mill coffee. It’s the quintessential LA experience.
BRUNCH: I love AMMO on highland. The bellinis are so fresh and the egg panini is to die for.
LUNCH: Joan’s on Third. Most stylish crowd in LA. DIVE TACO JOINT: Tacos Por Favor– so good!
CASUAL DINNER: Venice Beach Wine Bar. A cozy little bar/restaurant where they use crates as tables and serve the best basque food.
NICE DINNER: Gjelina. Cute servers and amazing food!!
SUSHI: Sushi Gen (422 East 2nd Street). A first come/first serve, no reservations type of place. The owner owns the fish market downtown so it is worth the wait.
PIZZA: Mario Batali’s and Nancy Silverton’s Pizzeria Mozza is incredible!!! Get the squash blossom pizza and Meyer lemon ice cream pie!
DRINKS: Chateau Marmont is a must!!
SPA: Kinara Spa on Robertson gives great facials and massages. The atmosphere is so zen your blood pressure will drop the second you walk through the doors.
KOREAN SPA: Natura. Get a body scrub and massage. You can’t believe how clean you will feel!
NAILS: Jackie’s is the best (903 n Fairfax).
SUPER LUXE SHOPPING: Maxfield’s.
VINTAGE: Sielian’s Vintage Apparel.
