There is still plenty of rain to fall in California and while it is much needed and welcomed, it's okay to long for those sunnier days to come. We are thinking about perfectly warm weather for wearing these Spring/Summer pieces by Loup.
Designed by Danielle Ribner and manufactured in New York City's garment district, Loup has a distinct style that combines modern shapes with a nostalgic French twist. This season showcases crinkle cottons, denim, chambray, and Ikat in an Americana (uh or French) color palette.
Here are some pieces looking oh so cute on the Loup model (with her amazing hair) that we will have in the shop and online in February and March.

Our exclusive designs for Dandelion Post by Hackwith Design House.
Based in Minneapolis, MN, Lisa Hackwith of HDH creates designs specifically for the boutiques in which they are sold and sews them using fine deadstock fabrics found around the world. We put together a blush, black, and olive story for this collection and chose designs that have a classic feel that pair nicely with each other and other Dandelion Post's designers.

When the air gets crisp, cozy sweaters and soft layers become important wardrobe staples. These are some of our favorites for this season.
The Washed Plaid Button Down (available in-store only) is soft with a double layer of fabric for warmth. It's easy to wear with any skirt or pants. We show it with equally soft Genetic Denim Leaf Flairs.
The Sweater Poncho looks great layered over a tee, sleeveless mock turtle neck, or a solid colored dress. We coupled it with the Lazy Long Tee made out of eucalyptus, Genetic Denim Flairs, Open Half Circle Necklace, and Chestnut Leather Tote.
It doesn't get more comfortable than joggers that are perfect for walking the dog or running errands. We matched the Essential Jogger with the coordinating Essential Sweatshirt and Calico Crew Socks for a cute lounge-around-the-house look.

Rare Heir is a local Temescal shop filled with antique and vintage treasures, small and large, perfectly curated in the old Hooper's Chocolate building. It is a must see on a weekend stroll around the neighborhood and is located only a couple blocks North of Dandelion Post.

This month we added Make it Good to our vendor roster! We love this brand so much we wanted to highlight them because of their designs and manufacturing practices. Make it Good makes everything in the USA in their production studio located in Portland, Oregon. Each print is designed and printed in their studio, their fabrics are either deadstock, organic, bamboo, or recycled and often milled in the USA, and they have easy to wear designs at affordable prices.
Now available in the shop and online. (photos from Make it Good)
Oakland artist and floral designer, Nicole Shaffer, created a line of home decor called Felt Pen Colors that is now available at Dandelion Post. She used a marbling technique on wood and fabric for this collection of wall planters, containers, and wall art. Her work will be featured at the store for the month of September. You can follow her creative vision on instagram @feltpencolors. See the full collection.
This is the series made for Dandelion Post with gold leaf inlaid under the deconstructed fabric.
We put together some outfits to help inspire your remaining summer needs. Whether for a music festival, boat trip, road trip, beach day, or just a picnic by the lake we have a great selection of Summer pieces that can easily transition to Fall.
We went for an airy and light design for the shop using a mix of light maple wood, copper, and white marble with darkened steel and vintage furniture as a contrast. The walls are 2 shades of pale grey and the prominent accent color is blue, which I think gives a natural feel while still being modern and crisp. My favorite finds are the Chinese screens and mid-century blue mountain artwork Allegra and I picked up at the Alameda Flea Market, but the best features are the custom ones.
My dad made all the copper racks and built the shelves and cash wrap with the help of my uncle. I was going to paint the cash wrap but it has a beautiful grain and looks perfect with the sliding doors built by Iron Skirt Productions, so we stained it with a clear coat.
Nothing adds warmth to a space like live greenery, so I had Nicole come up with a plan and she created cool wood containers with inlaid stones and brass details for the store, which pairs perfectly with the geode artwork she lent me. I am truly impressed by the piece she did for the cash wrap. Her design works perfectly with the mid-century vase I found on Etsy. You can learn more about her art outside of florals here.
My mom and I merchandised the store in color stories and since we both have Hawaii on the brain, we put summer whites and washed blues up front.
If you are in Oakland, we hope you can stop in! Otherwise, enjoy shopping online!
