Claiborne Swanson’s Shopping Guide


“I don’t look any further when I’m looking for something ultra-feminine,” says Claiborne Swanson of Beau boutique on Sacramento Street. The 25 year-old “gal about town” (as “C” magazine describes her) happens to be the buyer at Beau, which gives her the best opportunity to pull together the fresh, sexy, feminine look she wears so well.

In the September “C”, she shares her other favorite shopping spots:

  • Dylan Boutique. Alexander Wang, Anna Sui, Pegah Anvarian and Development. 415-931-8721
  • Dylan Shoes
  • La Rosa Vintage. High-end vintage. 415-668-3744
  • Held Over. Reasonably priced second-hand. 415-864-0818
  • American Rag. 415-441-0537
