STORY & PHOTOS

Where are a couple of trendy, rich-by-theft kids supposed to go in 2009 Los Angeles?  Kitson, of course. In “The Bling Ring”, the Sofia Coppola film based on the true story of teenagers who burgled celebrity homes a few years back, main characters Mark and Rebecca go on a shopping spree at Kitson on Robertson Boulevard after stealing cash (and joyriding in a car) from one of Mark’s acquaintances who’s out of town.

The fun shop, once favored by celebrities like Paris Hilton, is on shop-full Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles:

Here’s what Kitson looked like the first time I visited in back in 2007, when it was a celeb hotspot:

And just past Kitson is the spot where the most iconic “Bling Ring” image comes from:

My bestie Alex and I are obsessed with all things Bling Ring, so we paid homage while on Robertson:
