Los Angeles City Secrets from the Mulleavy Sisters

Nowness did an interview with the Mulleavy sisters (of Rodarte) about their favorite things in LA, and they came up with a great list! Some of these things I knew about (checking out Caravan Book store has been on my to-do list for ages), but some I had never heard of, like Rose Tree Cottage and The Prince. I love hearing what city insiders do versus reading what you find in city guides. No matter how many times a guide puts "not for tourists" on its cover, its never going to be able to give you the same experience as an insider. Point in case, I lived blocks from the Prince for a year and I had never heard of it even though I scoured Yelp for cool things to do in the neighborhood!
