For those of us blessed with ultra fashionable sisters, we have the luxury of raiding said sisters’ closets to obtain the latest apparel and accessories trends without spending a dime. I am always envious of my lovely little sister’s careless chic, looking as though she just stepped out of a bohemian café in the 6th Arrondissement in Paris, yet always managing to retain a touch of that glam California girl in her style portfolio. For those of you lacking in the sister department, Cameron Marks boutique on the Westside is a close second choice.
Featured in the Good Time’s 2009 fashion issue, the hip and popular store purveys stellar mainstream and indie labels including Dolce Vita, Prairie Underground and Sword and Fern. Since we last touched base with them, the original Cameron Marks boutique has expanded into an additional space to add even more shoes, accessories, children’s items and gifts to the already fabulous merchandise mix. Additionally, the store’s hours have expanded and you can now get your fashion fix there seven days a week. Sure it may be slightly more expensive than borrowing from your sister, but at least you won’t have to deal with the wrath when she finds out you have absconded with her favorite sweater yet again.
Cameron Marks is located at 402 Ingalls St., #7, Santa Cruz. 458-3080.
