We tend to need to work a little harder to uncover great shopping away from the high street - but with the independent fashion boutique LA LA LAND in our lives, the search is a little easier.
The store is nestled nicely into de courcey's arcade on Creswell Lane, amongst some other great independent shopping destinations - and stocks everything from cool clothes (you know your sister wont have an identical version of), to fashion books, magazines, art and jewellery. I'm a little bit in love with the Shona McGuiggan prints.
What I absolutely love about this store is that it is a self proclaimed 'blog shop', and sources stock from scouring fashion blogs for interesting designers. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's harboured fantasies about a shop version of my favourite fashion blog before. Now the dream is real baby. And the good news is that even if you don't live in Glasgow, you can still get in on the action on the La La Land website. Winner!
The store's first birthday party and AW11 preview is open to all this Thursday, but for now here are some of my favourite pieces from the store:
