I’m not exactly an expert on fancy ladies’ clothing (this may be something of a gigantic understatement), but I’ll trust my advisers that the new local online boutique Fancy French Cologne is something that fashionable Bay Area ladies will want to check out. Launched by former Finest Dearest bandmates Christine Bolghand and Carly Schneider-Clark, the boutique is “inspired by the classic San Francisco style: easy, wearable pieces that are never boring or blah.The boutique carries fashion-forward labels with clothing, bags and accessories that transition seamlessly from day to night, and offers a range of sophisticated handmade items customized just for the store.”

You can peruse the boutique’s offerings at FancyFrenchCologne.com, where you’ll see our own Content Director Nicole featured among the site’s models. There’s also a launch party for Fancy French Cologne this Thursday, September 23rd at Casanova Lounge (7-10pm).
