OMG: I just picked up the most DARLING sweater for a screaming, scary, almost-feels-free price. It’s a chocolate brown, long and fitted cardigan with a faux fur collar and cuffs. It is SO, SO Cute! I found it at this little boutique in North Beach called Cose Bella. I have been dying to stop in this place for a long time as I drive by it almost weekly. Walking in, feeling the vibe of the store and looking at the selection, I would have expected the prices to be upscale expensive, (everything between $250 and $600 dollars). But NO! Everything in the store was under $100. Most of the darling, fashionable tops I looked at were between $56 and $72, summer dresses were marked down 40% from $72. Everything in the store felt well made, lovingly selected and beautifully merchandised. I almost flew into frenzy; combing through the racks as if the dream of fashionable, wearable clothes would disappear into a reality of another zero on the end of the price tag. But it’s REAL and this store is SO worth a stop on a regular basis. I hear Cose Bella is bringing in an entire new inventory next month! I can’t wait! Get this: my sweater (it was the last one and the perfect size) was $42. Okay, so it’s acrylic and not cashmere but at that price I can wear it one season and throw it away if it looks shotty next season. The $600 cashmere sweater I bought last season feels out of date this season anyway.
