All SGV fashionistas thank heaven for Jenni B., a truly exemplary contemporary boutique in not-so-contemporary Old Town Monrovia that saves locals a trek to the westside. The selection is magnificent, with amazing pieces from Voom, Fremont, Susana Monaco, Yoana Baraschi, Kuyumi NY and more. There are also casual pieces from Free People and AG Jeans, […]
