La Diva - Fun, Fierce, Fashion for All

By: April Madigan @ Boutiquing

Anyone who has ever seen a episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County", has witnessed the sexy style that is La Diva. This mini-boutique chain (3 stores in total) made the wives famous for their blinged out tops when they first aired wearing all things La Diva. Now, La Diva has made a name for itself as the go to boutique for an attention grabbing outfit that refuses to break the bank.

My most recent trip to the Crystal Cove location reminded me of how beautiful these stores are. Looking beyond the racks of colorful Sky tops and blinged out True Religion jeans, one would think La Diva doubles as a interior design store. I salivated over a tall antique dresser, refinished in the perfect pale pearly pink - if only I had a single girl bedroom...I would have made an offer! Between luxurious leather and leopard couches and delicate crystal chandeliers, this is one of the more comfortable boutiques on the block. Couple that with the assortment of sexy night out styles and the fact that there is a GIANT men's section...I wonder why more men aren't begging to hang out on their couch!

Although La Diva consistently delivers great pieces for that romantic getaway to Vegas (read sexy and alter ego inspiring), my last trip proved there was something for everyone. I perused sheer button down ruffle front blouses, begging to be paired with a pencil skirt, comfy cotton sun dresses perfect for an impromptu beach cover up, and a great selection of casual tanks and tees for those of us who count a play date in the park as the big outing of the day. I also noticed a nice selection of shoes that compliment the La Diva look, metallic ankle strap heels by Oro Nero and leopard platforms by Steven were eye catching and versatile.

All in all, La Diva really delivers cost effective in, put an outfit together here and save yourself some won't have to buy yourself a drink all night:)

Men need not shy away from this boutique either...Royalty for Men is the boutique within the boutique that has men's style covered. Great denim, trendy shirts from Monarchy, 7 Diamonds (see them on the runway here), Roar (enter to win a Ferrari on their site), and Howe...and great personal attention to help put the look together.

A bit of boutiquing wisdom: Since there are THREE locations...if your size isn't there, the helpful shopgirls will always check the other stores and transfer items to the store of your choice - nice, right?
