What’s in Store: Transitional Pieces

Fall trends; back-to-school-ready nails; store expansions; and more!


Wardrobe Items

There’s a load of new arrivals at McMullen. Look for products from Jenni Kayne, local gal Melissa Joy Manning, Rag and Bone, Carven, and more.

Rad Republic, a San Ramon-based clothing company, has released several new designs. Their tanks, T-shirts, and hoodies give off a laid-back and cool California vibe, and are sold online and at Edge boutique on East Prospect Avenue in Danville. The material is super soft, and the shirts will be perfect for laying as the hot months turn cooler.

Vici has received many fall items. From boho-chic to glam, check out sweaters and long-sleeved tops that suit you.

Glamorous is now carrying a new, edgier line that is perfect for transitioning from light summer to warmer pieces. Dresses and skirts in neutral colors from SF-based Doubt Less can now be found at the Lafayette boutique.


Neiman Marcus

New Stores and Trends

Neiman Marcus in Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza has held several fall trend shows in recent weeks. Look forward to lots of layering, and fun, flirty booties. Greens and greys will rule the color world, and this season leather matches with everything.

Uniqlo is expanding just in time for fall shopping. This casual store is similar to H&M, and has crept into the West Coast in recent months. Look for one in Stoneridge Mall opening this Friday, and for one in downtown Walnut Creek on South Main Street, opening October 24.
