Where to Shop – Wildflower Women
It has been 14 years since I first opened WILDFLOWER Women & SANDBOX Kids. Wildflower’s original purpose was to bring the women of the Central Coast a boutique that housed the fashions and accessories that were missing from other local boutiques and larger department stores. Fourteen years ago fashion denim, quality knits, cashmere, and even hats were completely void in the local market. Today Wildflower brings you premium denim lines including Mother, Paige, Seven for all Mankind, AG, Citizens, Agolde, Joe’s Hudson; knit and cashmere lines like Michael Star, LNA, Bella Dahl, Bobi and Naddam; and a hat wall that will fancy just about any Central Coast Occasion.
Along with beautiful shops filled with exceptional fashions, our sales associates “the Wildflowers” are available to help any customer translate their vision of themselves into a reality. This can only be done with a staff, like ours, that understands the way each article, whether it be clothing, leather goods, shoes, or intimates will respond to your body type. Yes, body type! Don’t be fooled, Wildflower is not here to only cater to the stereotypes on the covers of the fashion magazines. We are here to celebrate women and give women an even greater reason to celebrate themselves. There are fashions out there for everyone. I have made it my job to comb through the thousands and thousands of articles of clothing available to me and select the pieces that will actually fit and feel great while wearing. The mission here is to dress women and children to a comfortable perfection, not just sell some clothes.
