These posts on LA have turned into a series. I haven't reached the end yet so just a warning...!
One of the members of our group had to buy a pair of shoes so we visited a shoe store in Culver City. The shoes were obviously cheaply made and the store was for the working class, but the ladies in the store couldn't have been more charming. I wish I could have taken a photo of the young Latino male who was guarding the door as he had an absolutely striking face (gorgeous too!). But he was very much on his dignity and I didn't dare.
