Exercise your prerogative to shop local and support homegrown fashion designers, too, at The Jane & Joe Shoppe.

And these designer clothes come at astonishing, near-knock-off prices — a point of pride for owner Robin Guzman, who works hard to make it so.
The dominant themes in her shoppe are wearable and polished; comfort and style reign supreme. The elegant, woodsy motif of the boutique also makes for one very serene, down-to-earth shopping experience.

Shop the block: Boutique Jasleen, 1020-A Mission St., South Pasadena

44082-7-9-10-8 R-JASLEEN02.jpg
39792-RBLOG-SHOP-SECTIONHEADER.jpgFrom the casual to the glamorous, Boutique Jasleen continually carries a well-curated collection of seasonal and classic fashions.
Even the store’s mannequins sport ensembles that you’d actually love to don. Bold patterns and old-fashioned hats make for a striking, modernist blend of style, and extraordinary accessory pieces cinch the deal.
It’s a little bit of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with a whole lot of Carrie-style “Sex in the City.”
Also look for carry-all purses that come just the way we like them: big enough to double as an overnight bag.

For special occasions, there is a haven for weary shoppers called Camille DePedrini, its owner the namesake. Camille has a message for the huddled masses: “Shopping should be enjoyed,” she proclaims.

Her boutique is a beacon of hope, filled with natural light, playful garments and sophisticated textures. A designer with a background in wedding gowns, formal wear and even millinery, Camille’s know-how translates into a sense of permeating calm.

Camille encourages shoppers to bring in fashion pieces they already have, so she can mix, match and get the most mileage out of your new finds.

Camille and her staff also make the casual-to-dressy transition feel effortless.

>>SHOP 

This is the smallest but most precious gift shop in which you’ll ever set foot. Owner Deb Doumitt packs a spatially-restrained but powerful punch in her eclectic mix of goodies. Her stock of stationery and fine paper goods is always plentiful and far more meaningful than those you’ll find in traditional card stores. Each is a small and colorful objet d’art.

>>SHOP

At the intersection of Green Street and Fair Oaks Avenue is an expansive corner shop — a former furniture store — with custom apparel creations and couture carryings. Bianca Luce is the nascent fashion establishment of proprietor Ariel Yoon, who is also a designer ready to make her name.

Search the racks for a deal, or build the foundation of your wardrobe with classic investment pieces designed to last. (Like the Christian Weber trench, $325, on page 68 of Rose Magazine, and displayed on the far-right mannequin in the photo of Yoon at top.)

Or just indulge your faddish senses with the wildest ensemble — the one you know you’ll only wear for one, glorious, foolhardy night. We’ll support you in your every endeavor. Just put us on the guest list.
