VOCABULARY BOUTIQUE, SAN DIEGO - PART ONE



A couple of weeks ago while I was in San Diego, I had the pleasure of collaborating with one of my favorite local shops, VOCABULARY.  Ever since my sister introduced me to it 3 years ago, it’s been a must on my to do list EVERY time I visit.  What I love most about Vocabulary is that it carries a mix of fun, well known brands as well as new, exciting local designers and brands.  


On this day, I got to work with fabulous owner Cecelia Church, and together we picked out four very different but stylish looks.  It’s no wonder that VOCABULARY is such an amazingly curated store, since after working with Cecelia for just a short time, it’s clear that she has a keen eye for style and her pulse firmly on what’s trending.  


The first item she showed me was this crisp white linen shirt by Lumiere.  It was love at first sight and I threw it on right over the JEANS I WAS WEARING.   I think lots of people shy away from linen because it wrinkles easily, but to me, that’s part of the appeal.  It gives you that lived in and well travelled look.  It’s like, if only this shirt could talk, it would tell you the most interesting stories about African safaris and whale watching expeditions in New Zealand.  We pulled it all together with this statement cuff, earrings, rings and MY FAVORITE TOTE.  A quick pause for some photos and back to pulling more looks together.  Stay tuned!

  4. As a San Diego resident I tend to overlook Little Italy as a place to shop for great trends. Thank you for bringing Vocabulary onto my radar! Great blog with lots of good info!

  7. Thanks so much! They are Via Spiga, I actually bought them a couple of years ago. They are not the most comfortable pair of shoes but they are not uncomfortable either. I love them, because they go with everything but I wouldn’t wear them for a night of dancing. They are better for a dinner date ;-) P.S. Isn’t the lemon dress great!
