The 12 Pinners From L.A. You Need To Follow ASAP

Now that the invite-only site has banished the exclusivity aspect, we're seeing a surge in even more stylish and inspiring pins. And, unsurprisingly, some of our fave L.A. locals are super fans of the social-media mecca. That's why we've rounded up 12 Angelenos who are definitely worth a follow, right here. Click through and prepare to repin your little heart out.
