Santa Monica’s dress code? Non-existent. If we had to make one up for you-we couldn’t. So instead, we’ll send you to the experts on Montana Avenue – the chicest street for fashion on the Westside.

Ever heard of 3 Dots, Divka, Rosa Maria, Yasutoshi Ezumi and Ujoh? Well, you’re in luck because Weathervane for Women has. They’ve got these designers, as well as many others for sale. Weathervane for Women has been holding its spot on Montana Avenue since 1977 and while its owners might have changed, their love of fashion remains the same.

If you haven’t heard of Pretty Ballerinas it’s time to crawl out from that rock you’ve been hiding under. The shoes designed as ballet slippers have kissed the feet of Angelina Jolie, Halle Barry, and Kate Moss. We can’t guarantee the paparazzi will be ready with cameras to photograph your beautifully decorated feet, but it’s been said that fortune favors the prepared, yes?

France, meet Santa Monica! Ok, we exaggerate. But French Lessons Boutique was voted in the top 54 of LA’s Tops Shops making it one of the most popular stops on Montana Avenue. Trina Truek, Rebecca Taylor, and Diane von Furstenberg are just a few of the names you’ll find on display here. Comfortable cocktail dresses (yes, there is such a thing) and moderate prices are not the only reason every shopper splurges on designer styles.

You might not be tired, but what about the mini-you’s you’ve been dragging around all day? They’ve been patient, helpful, and probably pretty cute. Lucky for them, and let’s be real, for you too, Montana Avenue hasn’t overlooked the little ones. Peek Kids offers respite! They’ve got kids clothes, kids shoes, kids accessories, a plethora of fun all in one! Stop in for a peek in the beginning, middle or end of your leisurely stroll down Montana Avenue. It’s guaranteed to please!
