New Treasures on Garden Street

Posted on: Friday, August 17, 2012

We found ourselves wandering around downtown on a recent Monday with some time to kill. We were pulled down Garden Street by the lure of a Linnaea's cappuccino, but instead found ourselves in Jules D., a charming new store opened recently by style maven Jules DuRocher. 

It was love at first sight!

Jules D. caters to a customer with a strong sense of design. Many of the items carried cannot be found in other stores on the Central Coast. 


The shoes and leather goods are to die for! Products carried at Jules D. are made in The U.S. or Europe--we are talking quality in design and manufacturing. Jules has worked hard to offer products at many differing price points. You can pop in for a little treat or purchase a special event gift.


We loved the fine quality shaving tools and grooming products. Baxter of California is a favorite. The Mister will have a smooth face and be smellin' fine!


This uber-fun and stylish location is at 1129 A Garden Street and is open Monday, Wednesday through Saturday from 10am-5:30pm, and Sunday from 11-4:30. Next time you're on Garden Street, stop in and say hi to Jules. It's the shop with the Ducati in the front window!

Hidden Treasure: Roxanne's Café

Posted on: Monday, August 6, 2012

Here's the routine--it's 2:00pm, we are super hungry, we waited too long and didn't fill our lil' fridge.
no. 1: Are we going to eat today?
no. 2: Yessirree. What's it going to be?
no. 1: (We go down our regular list of local eateries)
no. 2: OK, I don't care, you pick.
This goes on for another 10 to 15 minutes....
This week, we remembered that a number of our friends have been telling us about this little gem right around the corner--in our hood! Roxanne's Café.  


Roxanne's is open 11-3 daily and closed on sundays. Perfect, this day is taking a turn for the good.
As we come around the corner, we are enchanted by the seating choices and the atmosphere is so chill and comfortable.

The majority of the menu changes daily. There are usually specials, salads, soups and treats.


On this day, we try the eggplant pita and the romaine boats. They were both equally delicious!
We chose the coconut macaroons for dessert, and as sarah would say, "They were a symphony in my mouth!".


So far a 2 out of 3--they had a great atmosphere, great food, and SCORE, they made a 3 out of 3 with the staff being not only friendly but informative. I loved the relaxed banter that they had with all of their customers. As I sat waiting (not long at all), it is apparent that this place is a favorite to all that visit it.

Thanks Roxanne, Matt and Claire!

Roxanne's Café is located at 1227 Archer St. in the courtyard of Smiling Dog yoga.

The Six

Posted on: Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Remember The Weekly 6? We're ba-ack!

This week we have some really fun pieces along with some old faves.
First up, we have these truly amazing cast aluminum ornate church lighting fixtures.
The patina, size, weight, style of these are a steal at $475 a piece. 
They were salvaged from a basement of a church in Oakland.
They can be wired or used in any number of ways.


Next up is this mid-century table by Jens Risom.
Pronounced 'Yens', he was a Danish American designer that first came on the scene in the early 1940's.
For years he teamed with Hans Knoll until the late 40's, when he launched Jens Risom Designs, JDR.
In the 50's, after years of home furniture, he changed his focus to office, hospital and library furniture.
One of his chairs was used by Lyndon B. Johnson in the oval office. 
We cant say for sure when this table was designed, or where or what it was designed for, but
we do know that we are lucky to have it to enjoy until it finds a new home!!

Deconstructed Furniture--once we saw the spread on this in Restoration Hardware, we were hooked line and sinker!

At Alameda, we spied this loveseat in one of the last booths we hit. This is definately a look you either love or you just don't get it. We love the original touches of this beauty.


These pillows along with a few more are upcycled from vintage rugs. They add a beautiful rich touch to furniture or it will provide itself as a piece of art.


We are constantly adding to our collection of tooled handbags along with suede and woven. Sll shapes, sizes and eras.


Boots boots boots. Simple at that, timeless, leather, and perfectly worn in.  


The Rubinistas (or as Joan Rivers would say, "That b!^@% stole my look!".)

Have you ever looked at an ad in a magazine and gotten lost in it? While flipping through a Lucky magazine the other day, we did just that. We found ourselves thinking, "Hey, we have that look!" or "We can pull that off for a lot less!".

Many of  these ad photos and looks are really not a dream away, but right here at Ruby Rose--whether it's Ralph, Miss Me or J. Crew. So after being lost in the ads, we found ourselves again and knew what we had to do. We rang Jenn Young (our amazing photographer) and Kelsea, Riley and Hayden (our in-house models), and came up with our very own production of  Pageant of the Masters. 

Bohemian, the Premium, the Prairie Girl and the Prepster...we got our game on. The results were brilliant if we do say so ourselves!


...and the look below? It's one of our faves!


Thank you girls for the giggles and for helping us out on a moments notice!!
