Boy, do I envy high school BFFs Stacy Rodgers and Deidre Nagayama: They recently opened Curator, a charming women's boutique, in Noe Valley. You see, my childhood bestie and I used to have a fantasy that we would have a store one day when we grew up. Wistful sigh.
Not only do these entrepreneurs co-own a shop, they have been collaborating on a fashion label for almost a decade. And, of course, it takes center stage in the store. Called She-bible, it's a fun and functional collection of dresses, skirts, tops and hoodies (mostly made of a soft and comfy Poyl/Rayon/Lycra blend) available in a range of hues. Stacy and Deidre like to say their pieces are for "girls who work hard and play hard," like themselves. Plus, all goods are sewn and printed in SF, the duo's beloved home.
Along with the versatile She-bible, the shop features complimentary knits, denim, accessories and gift items from other designers. So whether you're a local or just visiting, Curator is one teensy "exhibit," you'll want to take in. And walk out with.
The shop is located at 1767 Church Street @ Day Street; 415-970-9828.
