While sitting in traffic that had come to a complete stop on Robertson Blvd, we noticed the Chanel store's valet sign and discovered the solution to hassle-free parking for the area. Sure, parking somewhere for the free valet is tacky, but so are Chanel sunglasses with big double C's on the arms, so they basically owe it to us.
Don't act like you don't park places illegitimately because it's free—we all do it. And it's definitely worth it considering the dense traffic and difficult parking of the neighborhood. So the next time you need to run an errand at the Robertson shops or meet a friend for lunch at Newsroom, make sure you allot yourself the little extra time you'll need to pop into Chanel and pretend like you're there to buy something.
