Erica Dee in Corona del Mar (PCH) has great sales, all the usual labels but a great shop.

I just found this article on CityGuides. They give a general idea of what's new in the OC shopping wise.

I really really like Millie at Crystal Cove, great place and some cool finds. And of course if you go into Laugna, most of the shops have some unique stuff.

American Rag just opened at Fashion Island. I know it's my favorite place to go in OC now and I don't have to drive to LA anymore.

Also, there is The Lab right down the street from South Coast. I mostly only go there to eat at the Gypsy Den though, yum!

I love Fashion Island. The summer my parents made me live with them when I wanted to be in NYC with friends. I spent EVERYDAY there..the people got to know me by my name and would ask where I was if I didnt' come in one day. It was pretty sad..

Yea it does have vintage for both men and women. It also has a HUGE denim selection. Overall, it is a very very nice store and a lot more organized than the one on La Brea.

One place NOT to go ICARA, they have the worst customer service ever. I remember walking into the Fashion Island location twice and no one ever says hello to me. No one ever acknowledges the existance of customers they just laugh and talk to each other. I was looking at tops and the SA came right next to me and put go backs away and totally ignored me.

Then I went to the Mission Viejo ICARA, and you won't believe what happened. The story is posted in the thread worst Customer service

Alright, this thread is pretty dead. Aside from the trendy stores (including Erica Dee, I always pass it driving down PCH and nothing particularly catches my eye), does anyone have any good vintage finds in more southern/coastal Orange County? I'm talking about Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Huntington, Newpot, CDM, etc. South Coast is basically my home away from home, but I'd love to find a cheaper place. By the way, does anyone know the exact directions from South Coast to the Lab?

I the shoe department at South Coast's Nordstrom's. The selection and prices there give Barney's and Sak's in Beverly Hills a run for their money!

Nordstrom's is known for riduculous sales, right? I scored a pair of Balenciagas and a pair of Miu Miu's there for around $400 total and combined they would've retailed for over $900!
