Best Women’s Clothing Boutique (2012)
The Clothing Store
606 Lighthouse Ave., Pacific Grove
If only all Facebook friends were as fun and photogenic as The Clothing Store—check the fab new chromatic Samuel Dong dress!—then Facebook would be worth 82.2 trillion, not billion. None of our FB BFFs offer mega sales with after-hours champagne, mingling and AMB stretchy tops. In short, there just aren’t enough thumbs on these fashionistas to properly show our like for TCS and all its Joseph Ribkoffs, Equestrians and Mycra Pacs. The only thing cuter than the threads is the occasional smush-face visitor, Dolly the shih tzu. (Check her out on, yes, the Facebook page).
