libertina 's Thoughts:

The best shops in Berkeley are undoubtedly Mars Vintage on Telegraph and Crossroads Trading Co. on Shattuck. One’s great for 1980s statement pieces and inspiration while the other has high quality new-ish clothing; I say “new-ish” (i.e. used) because most of their inventory has been “loved” (i.e. "worn) before. Accessories are even easier to find, with street vendors hawking all kinds of jewelry up and down Telegraph Avenue, and it’s ridiculously easy to get distracted by all their purrrdy things. This town may not be a Fashion Capital (snooty eye roll), but it’s a great place to play dress up if you’re into a vintage-inspired, fringe boots loving, wannabe NYLON editor sort of aesthetic. You may even cause a few hippie grandpa heads to turn if you wear anything short and floral. It’s a sweet, albeit somewhat unique, flavor of male attention. :)

Everything here came from Berkeley one way or another, whether pilfered out of a friend’s closet after a hard night out (see: top) or bought at a steep discount from Crossroads Trading Co. (see: skirt). This outfit can be topped off with a tasteful structured trenchcoat (as seen in additional photos), with the clean lines of the coat offsetting the overall bourgeois boho look.
