Adorable Affordables in Seal Beach is 2-year-old Lyndsay Barbosa's favorite place to shop. The fashion-conscious brunette from Naples can browse through an array of dresses and play clothes while visiting with 3-year-old Nicki, whose mom, Susan Biebl, co-owns the shop with Debra Ferguson.

Dunkin' Donuts has signed agreements to open 45 new stand-alone Dunkin' Donuts stores in Orange County and Los Angeles starting in 2015. The stores, to be launched by four franchise groups, would be the brand's only locations in Southern California not at a military base. That stop, which opened last year, is at Camp Pendleton north of San Diego. On Thursday, Dunkin' Donuts also dangled another titillating tidbit: that it may start opening several  “nontraditional” branches in the area over the next few months.

The couple built their market just off Coast Highway when Roy, then a machinist, dropped out of California's aerospace industry for the life of a commercial fisherman.

At last fall's glamorous Opera Pacific ball, a socialite in a stunning black ball gown admitted something once unheard of in these circles: She'd bought her gown at a secondhand-clothing store. Such an admission used to raise a well-plucked eyebrow or two, but now people openly boast about buying their clothes at resale shops. They love to show off the Donna Karan jackets, St. John knit dresses and Chanel suits they bought secondhand.

This was bad news, bleak news, the kind of news that drives some people to drink. Which was convenient, since many of those upset by the news were standing in bars and liquor stores when they heard. Hours after the California Supreme Court killed the state lottery's keno game, calling it an illegal form of gambling, players throughout Orange County were staring into the abyss. "I play this every day!"
