Exclusive Inside Look: Ali Golden's Stunning Oakland Boutique

We've already told you all about our love for Oakland's Temescal 'hood. And now, there's one more reason to hop on the BART and eat and shop your way through the district, thanks to local designer Ali Golden's new boutique. Located in the darling Temescal Alley that also houses Temescal Alley Barbershop, Crimson Horticulture Rarities, and Marisa Haskell's jewelry shop (fellow bauble house Esqueleto is just around the corner), the dreamy, light-soaked workspace and shop is definitely one that can transport you. Of course, the light-as-air clothing lining the racks just adds to the allure. Take an exclusive look at the space after the jump, and read up on Golden's plans for the venue, her favorite spots around Oakland, and plans to collaborate with her talented Temescal neighbors.
