Favorite Things 8

Gracie James

Siblings Gracie and James Lee opened their cozy boutique, Gracie James, in the heart of La Jolla last October. Featuring in-house succulent arrangements, one-of-a-kind home décor, unique jewelry and apparel lines, this eclectic spot also supports many local and upcoming artists. If you are looking for a hostess gift or head turning statement piece, you can find it here.

“We are very excited to be a part of this beautiful community. Whether looking for succulents, clothing or just wanting to stop in and share a glass of wine, we look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone in this special city.” GracieJames.com

Air plants and succulents
All arrangements are done in-house. Succulents are easy to care for and always look healthy. Bring in an old unused vessel and let us create something beautiful and unique.

Camilla is an Australian based company offering pieces that are not only works of art, but each piece can be worn as many as six different ways. For relaxed summer wear, our ‘go to’ favorite is Trovata – luxurious cottons and linens that look as cool as they feel.

Home décor
Diana Garreau is an amazing textile designer who has launched her own private line of throw pillows, scarves and beach totes using her famous designs. Ankole is a cool new line using discarded horns from Ankole cows in East Uganda repurposed into beautiful bowls and vases.

Conversation pieces
We feature unknown artists from the West Coast who create beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. If it’s crystals and their amazing powers you are into, we have a beautiful selection from around the world.

Local restaurant
Our frequent favorite is Puesto – amazing, fresh and healthy dishes. If we want to pamper ourselves, we swing for Burger Lounge, with all the works!
