This past weekend once popular department store, Kitson shut down the last of its 17 stores. Take Two goes inside what this means and more.

Now, to a retailer that's added yet another chapter in LA's fashion history: Kitson.

The upscale department store got its start back in 2000. The name comes from the middle name of its founder, Scottish-born and Canadian-raised Fraser Kitson Ross.

But the names most associated with the brand were stars like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan,  who shopped at the store's flagship location on Robertson Boulevard. 

This past weekend, Kitson closed the last of its 17 shops.

What the death of this posh chain means, is what we're talking about on The Styled Side. Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily joins the show to discuss.
