First we stopped in Rockridge where we went to vintage clothing store, Pretty Penny. This was definitely one of my favorite vintage stores I have seen in a long while. Not only did it expertly cover up the “nostalgic” smell that is commonly found in vintage shops, but it also had unique displays and decorations that set it apart from the same vibe of most vintage stores. Renee tried on and bought a 50s inspired floral dress. They had an amazing selection of short, flat, grey boots that I had my eye on in addition to great bags and accessories. I would definitely recommend a quick trip on AC Transit 51 and looking around Pretty Penny.
After a quick lunch, we stopped in Crush on College, which had a great selection of summer dresses, shoes, and hair accessories (a big trend at the BARE I5 launch party at Henry’s). One of our favorite pieces was a summer romper that Allison tried on. This is definitely a fun, retro-inspired look that we couldn’t get enough of.
After what we thought the day was going to be a disappointment because of our cupcake void, we ended up having a lot of fun exploring the shops along College and enjoying the beautiful day. Luckily, after a long day of walking and shopping we were lead to Ici where we enjoyed fresh ice cream as an end to our journey.
