Note: This complimets was posted by Meaghan O. on Yelp at 06/05/2007. Thanks Meghan. – I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this store. Now I'm not a big shopper. In fact, I rather despise shopping, I highly enjoy getting new clothes, but I can't stand the process I must go through to acquire them. But on those rare occasions when I feel like purchasing something other than food and booze, Linne's is often my first (or only) stop. (Urban Outfitters is my other fave.)
Linne's is a smallish boutique on Redondo and Anaheim, close to the Goodwill store. I used to always drive past it and marvel at the cute clothes in the window but assumed that it would be ridiculously overpriced (as are most fashion boutiques) and never bothered to try it. But when my friend Krista told me that one of her super-cute outfits was from Linne's and that it really wasn't very expensive, I decided it was time to bite the bullet. Linne's is family owned and run and Linne herself is always extremely nice and helpful. There's a sale section in the back which occasionally has frightening items but mostly offers some good deals. They also have a good selection of jewlery and other accessories. And the shoes! If I didn't have gargantuan feet (try finding a cute girly shoe in size 11--just try it) I'd be all over them.
The only thing I don't appreciate about Linne's is their jean selection. I'm a Gap jeans kind of girl--I like 'em when they're cheap and they fit me. I'm not a brand whxxx by ANY stretch of the imagination. But one day I was perusing the jeans at Linne's (all designer brands, of course) and decided to give them a try. I've never been so frustrated/disappointed when jean shopping in my life. NONE of them (even a waist size I knew would fit) would fit over my ---. Very discouraging. I guess the plus side (no pun intended) is that I can be nice to my bank account and stick with my $40 Gap jeans.
Jeans aside, Linne's is a wonderful place to shop, especially for a non-shopper like myself.
