Twinkletoes had told me about Jeremy’s in Berkeley, and what a goldmine their clothes and shoes were, so I had subscribed to their e-newsletter featuring sales and had been oohing and aahing over the email pictorials for a full year, but little was I prepared for the real experience, which finally happened a week ago. Berkeley makes you think Birkenstocks, right? Not so! Cute little boutiques full of reasonable, hip lines like Pink and Tulle are de rigeur for the Elmwood section of Berkeley near the campus, and Jeremy’s is the best of them.
CHA-CHING! SHOE GOLDMINE!
The prices were so reasonable, the place was so well-organized and the gents who worked the shoeshop were uberfriendly. Yes, there are quite a lot of J.Crew items. But if you’ve ever shopped in the mucky chaos (and fun) that is Gabay’s or Tokio 7, this west coast cousin of those stores will have you yelping (literally and online) for joy about how organized and pleasant the shopping experience in.
And don’t forget to check out the clothes and other accessories too, shoeaholics! Gorgeous clutches, sunglasses, gloves and belts to fill out your new chic (and … shhh, cheap!) shoe collection. I have a weakness for Italian leather driving gloves and opera length gloves, so the next time I’m in there, I’m fighting you for them, be forewarned! I can get down like Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic!
And here’s what you’ve been waiting for: the info for Jeremy’s. Now hop to it, saleistas!
