Mimi & Hy

After grabbing a crepe at the Studio City farmers market just before everyone packed up (about 10 minutes after we arrived), Gary and I decided to browse around Ventura Ave. for a little bit. We were fortunate enough to stumble across a brand new shop that opened its doors just 8 days ago. It’s called Mimi & Hy and their adorable tagline is “the general store for the fabulous”. It really couldn’t be much more accurate. The design of the place is just simple enough but just beautiful enough to live up to the phrase. Intentionally crooked drawers in the front are stocked with delectables from Dylan’s candy bar (to lure you in), as well as cool handbags, gorgeous candles, lotions and potions and my favorite section which I like to call the “walk of shame shop” which is stocked with compacts that double as condom holders (appropriately titled “just in cases”) and even a little baggy so that any single gal can be well-prepared for the occasional one-night stand…it comes with a clean pair of undies, condoms, a toothbrush & toothpaste and even the appropriate supplies to write a note as you’re sneaking out in the morning. I racked my brain trying to think of someone to buy this for but then I realized that almost all of my friends are married. Oh well. We did pick up a delicious smelling candle and some chocolates. Definitely check it out, there is even a comfy leather sofa in the back also known as “the boyfriend area”.
