Tastemaker: Andrea Van De Vort
This fashionista’s namesake boutique is quickly becoming a favorite among NoCo shoppers
Current job: Owner of Van De Vort boutique
Background: Andrea spent six years in the fashion district of Los Angeles, representing international labels and attending trade shows and fashion shows across the map. She eventually decided to bring some L.A. style down south.
Fashion philosophy: Invest in staple pieces. An awesome organic cotton t-shirt, a buttery-soft leather jacket, some killer black pumps, and the perfect little black dress will save you on more occasions than you could imagine.
Personal style: Laid-back yet polished, simple yet trendy.
Her favorite things:
Layers of dainty gold necklaces add subtle glamour to any outfit. Torchlight ‘Lunette’ necklace, $85, torchlightjewelry.com
These black booties by Sol Sana are so comfortable and always on trend. Storm boot, $180, Van De Vort boutique, 2710 Via de la Valle, Del Mar
Suja Juice is packed with fruits and veggies, and I love that it’s a local company made in SD. Green Supreme, $9 per bottle, sujajuice.com
This local designer travels the world collecting ethnic jewels and gems to decorate her embellished cow skulls. They are great conversation starters. Prices vary, childofwild.com
I love anything by Stone Cold Fox for its subtle prints and soft feminine details. We are the exclusive vendor in San Diego. Love jumper, $275, Van De Vort
I’ve been really into Japanese nail art this year. Right now I have an ombre French manicure. It usually takes two to three hours, but my nails never go unnoticed.
If you’re having a bad hair day, or wearing a kimono, pair it with this oversized fedora by Janessa Leone. Vincent fedora, $330, Van De Vort
