Okay, kids. Time for a little NorCal-SoCal breakdown. Who’s better? (We’re never ones to beat around the bush.)
Hiking: With Marin on our side, Angelistas can have Runyon Canyon.
Dining: Koi, Mastro’s, and Dominick’s don’t compare to Delfina, Michael Mina, and Town Hall.
Landmarks: The Hollywood sign’s got nothing on our Golden Gate.
Shopping: Uh …
Fine. So some might argue that we’re still catching up in that department.
In the meantime, solve your fashion woes by logging on to satineboutique.com. L.A.’s coveted boutique has just put all of its merch online: a stellar selection of shoes by Chloé, Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and French Sole; clothing by Madley, Cacharel, Sass and Bide, and Lover; lingerie by Story of Love, Paramour, and Tsumori Chisato; handbags by Laurence; jewelry by Lanvin and Alexis Bittar; and sunglasses by Cutler and Gross.
An added perk to the already kickin’ site? The genius suggestions on how to wear each piece. Not sure you’ll get enough use out of that expensive Stella McCartney swimsuit? They recommend wearing it as a leotard with skinny, black Tsubi jeans.
Just remember to put a jacket over it up here in the winner’s circle.
