Sadly, Hump Day is not as naughty as it sounds. (It’s actually a straight-up snooze.)
Spice up your midweek slump with a visit to Weekend Lovers, a gem of a boutique (named for a “Purple Rain” lyric) now open on La Brea.
You may remember owner/fashion designer Karolina Maszkiewicz as half of the design duo behind purr-fectly fierce ring collection Pinky Panthers. Here, she curates a mix of vintage (Scout, Just Say Native) and local pieces (Wren, Anita Arzé) that speak to her kooky-cool style. And Maszkiewicz shares the love, organizing items according to look rather than label and spouting invaluable how-to-wear advice.
Come June, find her own line of minimalist-chic knits. In the meantime, lust after edgy Demon Riff leather miniskirts and Bones and Feathers Collective rattlesnake vertebrae necklaces.
Why wait ’til Friday to get freaky?
Weekend Lovers, 351 South La Brea Avenue, between West Third and West Fourth Streets, Mid-City (323-933-9032 or shopweekendlovers.com).
