My LA: Jenni Kayne

With fashion week just around the corner, we thought we would shine a light on one of our very favorite local designing women: Jenni Kayne. This Los Angeles native is always on the top of our must-buy lists and we cannot wait to get a glimpse at her spring '11 collection. She always manages to show pieces that are classic, gorgeously crafted, and perfectly on-trend, so it is no wonder this multitasking mom has legions of stylish celebrity clients among her many fans. We love checking out the goodies at her West Hollywood boutique, because it's one of the best edited shops in town and you can always pick up amazing home wares, Tom Binns bangles, Benjamin sunnies, and the great knitwear that she's become famous for. And while Jenni is busy putting the final touches on her next collection, she was able to take a break from the action and share her five fave local haunts. From the best place to get chicken tacos to the ultimate destination for a green-thumb gardener, we highly recommend you check out this tastemaker's top five to get a slice of the good life right here in the City of Angels.
