Pearl Drop

Best Boho Dresses, August 2014

Any woman who fancies herself a modern lady of the canyon will swoon over the fringed, feathered, and crystal-encrusted pieces at Pearl Drop boutique in Venice. Owner and fashion designer Jennifer Nicholson (Jack’s daughter) has outfitted the shop to resemble an underwater treasure chest, a place where mermaids might keep their most prized possessions. Among the booty are Unicorn Airlines headdresses, Jacquie Aiche medicine bag necklaces, hand-blended fragrances from Sanae Intoxicants, and scores of flowy frocks. The most coveted items are the mini- and maxidresses and caftans by L.A.-based Cheyann Benedict, in naturally dyed silk georgette.
