Release your inner girlie-girl at this sweet-as-candy boutique in Highlands Square. Hardly bigger than a shoebox, the crayon-bright space is lined with framed photos of seductresses from the golden era of the silver screen, beneath whose scarlet smiles racks burst and shelves spill with all kinds of finds at generally reasonable prices: belts, hats, shades, bags, scarves, and costume baubles complement a smaller selection of apparel. And the easygoing staff strikes the perfect balance between helpfulness and the hands-off approach, so you can browse at your leisure.
Carrying a mix of new and vintage threads, Babareeba! Then & Now is a comfy, welcome departure from the super-trendy, spendy boutiques of Highlands Square.
Owner Jerilyn Berardi is a stickler for mint condition pieces, be they designer pumps, faux fur and leather jackets circa 1973, or insane vintage gems—but she’s also got an eye for combining her finds with the duds of today. Head downstairs to check out the one-of-a-kind lingerie, charmingly displayed amid boudoir-style décor.
From Jackie O-style suits to designer gowns, Babareeba! maintains your flair—retro or cutting-edge—at prices that are more than fair.
