there are definitely a lot of fashion no-no's in la. like ed hardy and the uggs for example. even crocs but a lot of people tell me they only wear crocs and uggs because of the comfort. i still don't like them though lol but at the same time you can find that anywhere. la isn't as big as new york so i understand the love of new york, but la isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

I agree-people in LA have more fun with their style than in a lot of other cities!

kelly wearstler epitomizes LA style to me-she is iconic and orginal.

I like the emphasis on vintage couture in LA.

I overall hate Ugg boots. I'm in London and the weather is cold and everywhere I turn, people are wearing them!

I live in the UK at the moment and want to move over to LA in the next 2 years. I dont want to live there just spend a year or two there.
But i dont have a clue how to get started. I attempted to apply for a Visa but i think i need a job first. But how do you get a job in LA when you are living in the UK and dont yet have a visa for LA :S it confuses me a little!

So if anyone has any advice or tips about moving from the UK to the US id be grateful

Also i dont think the style in LA is oh so bad, it is more relaxed. I like it!

^ The job part may be difficult... Heck, I live here, and it's hard to find a decent job...

There are definitely many style blunders out here. I see it every day. But I do get ideas, as well.

I was just reading about the Fashion District in downtown LA.
I heard they do sample sales. Does anyone know what labels they sell?
Is the fashion district any good?

I'll be staying close to there, so im considering going for a visit!

A lot of West Coast based brands have their warehouses in Downtown LA- (Black Halo, American Apparel. etc) they periodically have sample sales throughout the season that may or may not coincide with your visit.

You may want to check out dailycandy etc to find if any of the designers are having their SS while you are here.

A lot of smaller fashion-shops/designers hold similar sample sales once a quarter in the California market building.

Santee Alley- which I think is what you may be referring too- is a lot of small fashion shops crammed together bazaar style almost. There are original designers, knock-offs you name it. It can be a lot of fun to go and rummage and see what you find. Generally anything that is 'label' is knock off...but you can find some original jewelry there etc.

you can do an internet search and find some guides to Santee alley.

HTH!
