The Irvine-based blogger Christine Kong talks about her favorite fashion spots in O.C.
My go-to places are Stevie Sister, Blue Eyed Girl, Un.Affected, VICI, Resurrection, and Red Fox Good Clothes. All of these boutiques have that West Coast, relaxed vibe and are so representative of Orange County.
Best Clothing Brands
PJ Salvage does lounge and sleepwear right. They have the cutest prints and softest pieces. Amuse Society is another local brand that has amazing dresses, bathing suits, and two-pieces.
Best Jewelry Stores
I love dainty, everyday jewelry that you can layer. Gorjana has amazing pieces, and I love that she is based here in Laguna Beach. I also love Broken English in Lido that carries a mix of modern and vintage pieces that can be worn for everyday or special occasions.
I’ve been going to Salty Blonde Cut Co. in Costa Mesa for the past year, and I’m obsessed. It’s such a cool vibe and space, and they even have a small area where you can shop clothes and accessories from local boutiques.
I love Korean skin care and go to Lotus Spa in Irvine for their hydrogen facials and their waterfall lifting massage facials. The Spa at Pelican Hill and the Miraval Spa at Monarch Beach Resort are incredibly relaxing and beautiful. If you really want a deep body scrub, go to iSpa in Irvine. Your skin feels like a baby when you leave there!
