More Dolce & Gabbana than you can shake a stick at....

If you ever gotten around to making a trip to Hollywood. A good place to start is actually West Hollywood, a self-imposed big town of starlets and trendsters. Or, if you even want to try out your luck in Hollywood or just "Slumming" from your East Coast friends and family, what a better to immense yourself with the natives than dressing like them.
Better yet, dress better than them at a deep discount.

You wouldn't have to resort to cheap, sweatshop knock-offs. These are the real things.

At this yet-to-be discovered boutique, the Fashion Factory Boutique. Directly behind the behemoth Beverly Center Mall at 8601 Beverly Blvd, it houses Just Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana for the young, aspiring starlets and hunks at 40% to 80% off the regular price.

They'll have you covered from head to toe, literally. A table full of Valentino pumps. A wall of over-sized Chloe bags. Mind you, when you go upstairs to the women's department, there are ladylike fashions from Missioni and Dolce & Gabbana prim enough to have tea with your granny or breezy easy enough to impress your bffs or frenemies at the next Summer Soiree. You can easily fool them that you have the serious cash to pay full price.

But the best deal are the easy-to-pack kimono tops, ranging from $74 to $85 and 575 jeans at $99, the exact same things you can easily over-pay for in Mt. Pleasant, SC or downtown Charleston. What you pay for back home, can easily pay for two items at Fashion Factory.

Don't let that West Hollywood attitude intimidate you. The sales folks at Fashion Factory are here to help and find Southern accents adorable. Use it to the hilt!

Finally, souvenirs you can actually use or a quick way to fit in with the hyper-trendy West Hollywood crowd. Stuff to impress the folks back home.
