In the vast expanse of L.A., there are more than a few excellent shopping destinations, and some of the city's raddest style stars are manning the check-out at these well-edited boutiques. To be sure, nobody's more on top of what's new and notable on the shop racks on Venice's Mona Moore or Steven Alan than their very own super-cute shop boys and girls. So, of course, we were happy to defer to the experts. Whether it's a gotta-have-it pair of stunning heels or a simple pullover that will make getting dressed this summer a snap, we've asked Lisa Bush from Mona Moore and Jeremy Chuang of Steven Alan Annex to help us narrow down the bestest of what's in store on this adorable stretch of Abbot Kinney.

Lisa Bush, co-founder, Mona Moore:
1. Rodarte Booties. "I am in love with the whole world of Rodarte that Kate and Laura Mulleavy have created. It's romantic, delicate, and also a little bad-ass. The shoes, especially with these talon at the ankle, are a perfect example of that contrast I love. Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte Booties, $1695.
2. M.A+ Leather Wrist-Bands. "Another great line we feature that has a cult-following is this small, artisanal line called M.A+. It is hard to find, and Maurizio Amadei has made an exclusive shoe, a ballerina, just for Mona Moore. He also makes cool leather wrist bands and leather pouch necklaces that our customers are loving." M.A+ Leather Wrist-Band, $205.
Mona Moore, 1112 Abbot Kinney Boulevard (at Westminster Avenue); 310-452-4070.‎
Jeremy Chuang, manager, Steven Alan Annex:
1. Boyfriend Pullover. "The customers are really responding to Steven's new Boyfriend pullover, and it's definitely my summer must-have. It's very relaxed and so easy to just put on and go." Steven Alan Boyfriend Pullover, $158.
2. Swim Trunks. "Since we're right on the beach, most people that come by love checking out swimwear, and the signature swim-trunks have become a cult favorite. They're classic and totally modern at the same time." Steven Alan Swim Trunks, $148.
Steven Alan Annex, 1601 Abbot Kinney Boulevard (at Washington Boulevard); 310-452-3413.
