Talking Savvy: L.A. Market Trip

Check out weekly posts from Sarah Hendren, our super-stylish Savvy buyer, as she fills us in on all things Savvy—from the hottest trends to the bands she’s loving right now to dreamy vacation spots you might not know about.

It’s Savvy Buyer Sarah Hendren’s job to make sure you get your hands on the hottest trends as they’re happening, so every couple of months, she hits up sartorial hot spots like New York or L.A. to meet with clothing vendors (it’s called going to “market”), and if she likes what she sees, she buys it.

But we were curious: what does a fashion-maker like Sarah wear when she’s on the road (and where are her favorite places to hang)? We asked her just those questions after a recent jaunt to Los Angeles.


“These lightweight pants from WAYF are professional enough for meetings, but the print makes them so much cooler than basic black. Add some earthy accessories and a boxy crop top—and my iPad, of course—and I’m ready for a busy day. “

“It can be tough to get away for a proper lunch, but if I can manage it, there’s nothing better than a lobster roll from Son of a Gun in WeHo. They are insanely good.”

“I like to change for drinks before dinner—which are a must after a a long day of meetings. No one should say no to animal prints. I mean, they’re basically a neutral! I stay at The London and the rooftop bar there is stunning, but it can get a little chilly after dark, so I always have my Mural moto jacket on hand. It adds just the right amount of edgy cool to everything.”

“For dinner, I’ll make the trek to Venice for a wood-fired pizza from Gjelina, it’s that good. I make sure to get some greens, too; they source most of their produce from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, so you know it’s fresh. The rustic design here is so cozy and charming—it’s definitely one of my favorite places in Southern California.”
