Store advices in LA

Post by BAKS » Fri Aug 17, 2018 12:46 pm

Hi everyone! I'll arrive from another country and I'll have only few days in Los Angeles to buy clothes. Does somebody can advice good and not too expensive shops, where I can buy clothes/costumes which style will be good for BM?

Thrift stores / second hand stores.

Most fun to explore a strange town by yourself, even asking for directions can be difficult :D
