Four years ago, our hearts sank when Hayley Starr shuttered her WeHo spot. Since then, we'd often find ourselves wandering past the Westbourne Drive storefront, wishing she'd magically re-appear with flowy frocks in tow.
Well, our prayers have been answered. Starr is back, and bringing her whimsical ways even further West. Her new Venice shop, The Quest by Hayley Starr, is a must-visit for any Angeleno looking for more than just a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am shopping experience. Between the monthly art installations and in-house workshops (the store also doubles as a studio!), there's no shortage of inspiration at this sun-drenched boutique.
Starr's mission is to make women feel downright beautiful through her clothing and carefully curated selection of jewelry, beauty products, and books. Take a peek at these pics of the shop, which is apparently an extension of her abode. Oh, and be prepared for major interior envy (the decor is so major we're not sure you'll want to leave — except to show off your new frock, natch).
The Quest by Hayley Starr, 2122 Lincoln Boulevard (at Venezia Court); 310-360-9711.
