Tucker Paisley dresses ($25 to $150),
Taxi CDC’s reworked vintage ($35 to $45)

Unique hits LA the weekend prior to Mother’s Day— so get your shopping groove on with this truly “unique” event.
Something special: stationery vendors Joie Studio, Just JENN design and Anemone letterpress offer cards that carry a more personal statement than a store-bought note.

Rain Tees ($32), designed by youths living in Central and South American rain forests.
