The best way to be a part of the Los Angeles fashion scene is to shop at all the shopping hot spots. We're not talking hitting up Rodeo Drive, we're talking about shopping at some of the hottest flea markets and thrift stores out there. Below are a list of places that we think you should visit, if you haven't already.

This flea market is held every Sunday in the parking lot at Fairfax High School, with over 3,000 attendees every Sunday. We've never been here, but we've heard amazing things about the flea market. We will visit very soon.

Jet Rag is great vintage clothing spot in La Brea. They have a great selection of clothing and the store is also neat and organized. Every Sunday in there parking lot, they have $1 Sundays. Yep you heard it right, everything in the parking lot is a $1.  Of course you'll have to dig through a lot of stuff, but you might find that
