Barefoot Contessa offers Commerical Drive browsers an extravagantly feminine version of bohemian chic. Personal vision is what has style mavens flocking to this store, where you are guaranteed to find things witty, funky and, above all, girlie. The good supply of curve-hugging cotton T-shirts is one of the store's signature items as are the vintage slips and camisoles that storeowner Eva hand-dyes and beads to transform into luscious evening wear.
Surrounding the clothes are hand-picked precious giftware and modern jewellery made with a classic vintage look. There is also a small ultra sexy collection of handbags, and linens.
Everything Old is...
Don’t be fooled by the look of some of the stock. It is new but often takes on an vintage look. The Barefoot Contessa carries a number of local and sometimes difficult to find designers. They will consign on housewares but it is best to call ahead for details. The Barefoot Contessa also keeps products like slips, bed jackets, cocktail dresses and bed throws and tea towels in stock. Located in a vibrant shopping area, this shop is worth the trip. And if you’re looking for a gift that will have everyone talking, you’ll want to cast a keen eye on their selection of quirky gifts.
