Big props to San Jose. The South Bay-based e-tailer, Anaise, has us mesmerized with their consistent selection of subtle-cool, everyday and super unique finds.
The designer index boasts local artisans as well as emerging talent from NYC and Europe, and each piece is meticulously curated to fit a cohesive look. We can't decide what we like more–the easy peasy, throw-on-and-go frocks, oversized hair barrettes or their incredible selection of oddly shaped, beautifully structured bags.
