When Price is No Object:

Allora by Laura – Allora by Laura popped up about a year ago on Montecito’s popular Coast Village Road. You will love Allora’s selection of cozy knitwear, bold accessories, and modern street wear straight from the runway to your closet. Shop their exclusive collections or even stop by for personalized styling!The mother-daughter duo will be delighted that you found them and you be will too!!! (and a bonus…they are located right next to newly expanded Jeanine’s Bakery on Coast Village. Yum)

K. Frank – We absolutely adore K. Frank, especially because they carry women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, accessories and even home essentials! With such a wide variety of brands and collections,(can someone say, Canada Goose Jackets), it’s a one-stop shop and you will never leave empty handed. Best part? K.Frank is a neighbor of Walter Claudio and an easy stop after your visit to the salon and store.

Diani Boutique —Whether you are looking for clothing, accessories, or footwear, Diani Boutique has it all! Diani offers a variety of American and European designers that embrace Santa Barbara’s relaxed lifestyle. If you are looking for footwear, pop in to Diani Shoes, which offers the most exclusive brands (Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney and Sergio Rossi, to name a few). Be sure to keep an eye out for Diani’s third boutique that will be offering home goods!

Budget Friendly:

Dear Diary – Dear Diary has a fantastic assortment of affordable clothing and accessories. We especially love their selection of chunky knits and dresses for any occasion. Dear Diary has so much to offer, you could walk out with an entire outfit (including accessories) for less than $100!

The Closet – We included The Closet on the budget friendly list because this is an amazing resale boutique that carries brands like Chloe, Joie and Diane Von Furstenberg 70% below retail prices! You will find anything from clothing, accessories and shoes at The Closet. The great thing about shopping at The Closet is that most pieces are unique and one-of-a-kind.

Plum Goods – If you are looking for eclectic, unique and unexpected gifts, Plum Goods is the perfect place! Plum Goods is a local boutique that carries art, textiles, glassware, jewelry, toys and so much more. The great thing about Plum Goods is that most products are recycled or hand made!
