Shop Talk

Walnut Creek’s Filthy Gorgeous—home to one-of-a-kind vintage and handmade furniture and home accessories—has opened a new flagship boutique at 1329-A N. Main Street. Filthy Gorgeous also will maintain its presence in Broadway Plaza, where its original store occupies the intimate space that was formerly Megan Haney Designs (next to Macy’s). Meanwhile, word is that yoga clothing and lifestyle retailer Lululemon Athletica will open a store on Olympic Boulevard near Urban Outfitters.

O’ My Sole at Danville’s Rose Garden is delighting shoe fetishists. Like its Claremont location, this O’ My Sole features fashionable and comfortable footwear by Clarks, Frye, and Ugg. Danville’s Geoffrey Scott boutique on Hartz Avenue, purveyor of custom fine jewelry and accessories, has undergone a miniremodel to showcase upscale handbags (see picture) by Kooba, Hayden-Harnett, Andarei, and Bryna Nicole. Geoffrey Scott may open a second location at Walnut Creek’s Plaza Escuela in spring 2009.

Loot has moved to 3598 Mt. Diablo Boulevard in Lafayette from Oakland’s College Avenue. The shop offers an eclectic but upscale collection of antique furniture, and classes on flower arrangement.

Oklahoma transplant Sherri McMullen, former buyer for Pottery Barn Kids and Neiman Marcus, has opened McMullen at 4395 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. The high-end boutique carries jewelry, handbags, and night-on-the-town fashions by designers Diane von Furstenberg, Catherine Malandrino, Malene Birger, and Rory Beca. In addition to offering in-store personal shopping services, McMullen will make house calls to help you fine-tune your wardrobe.
