Lindsay Parton has imported her vision of L.A. style from the Alchemy Works boutique and gallery in the downtown Arts District to the newly revamped Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach. The pedestrian-friendly collection of 1940s seaside bungalows turned into a shopping center in 1970, but has been recently revamped to become the O.C.’s hottest retail and food destination, with tenants including Steven Alan, Jenni Kayne, Serena & Lily, Aesop, Nobu, Publica by Zinque and Apolis, the socially conscious personal-accessories and menswear brand founded by Lindsay’s husband, Raan. Here the style maven shares her list of O.C. musts.
