Italy’s hottest boutique celebrated the grand opening of its first U.S. store on Melrose on October 22nd. Being that I am Italian I was thrilled because My Closet Italia is the go-to spot for fashionable Euro street style clothing. The store carries such lines as Cheap Monday and Dondup Jeans, as well as the famed “Happiness is a $10 Tee”. You’ll also find high end Italian vintage and alternative apparel in addition to handbags and accessories. I stopped shopping on Melrose because all the boutiques carry the exact same articles of clothing. Thankfully, you won’t have that problem here…and the prices are very reasonable. I bought the cutest ruffled coat for under $70. My Closet Italia – Melrose will soon feature the “New Designer Corner,” which will display works from aspiring designers; thus, providing them with an opportunity to sell on a consignment basis within the boutique. If you are looking to score something stylish and unique stop by My Closet Italia, which is located at 7716 Melrose Ave. L.A.
