    We never tire of prowling around Oakland’s Temescal Alley in search of new goodies to snatch up, nor would we wander that indie stretch of shops without paying a visit to Ali Golden’s namesake boutique. Chock full of whimsical, paper-thin tunics and floor-sweeping dresses, we typically consider our Ali Golden garments the quintessential Bay Area summer staples. Not to disparage the sun’s current cameo, but on this particular visit, the designer had us shifting gears and focusing on sweet — yet cozy — threads.

The silhouettes are integrated into new fabric contents, including wool voile, a cotton-yarn dyed dungaree, and waxed canvas.” Think you’ll miss out on her signature lighter looks? “The silk basics are still offered,” she assures.
