This shop is the self-professed emporium of clothes you wish your mother had kept for you and the sisters who run this store have an impeccable sense of style and composition, breathing new life into beautiful vintage garb.
Bianca and Simone Brandi hand pick all the items (from hunting down selected items to trading/buying/selling in store) with an unerring sense of value that lasts, and fashion that endures.
Their instore displays are an absolute delight, showcasing the extensive stock in a whimsical and timeless way. Named after their black cat Rocky who has a bit of a phobia when it comes to rodents, the sisters drew their inspiration from a trip to America where they toured the vintage Americana stores. Gents, head on over to Dear Me and grab some lunch, we may be a while.
After a great meal it’s a good idea to go stretch your legs and explore the main road on foot. Amongst the many antique stores dotted throughout the town, the Kalk Bay Trading Post stands out due to the range of memorabilia as well as its longevity. They sport a massive array of trinkets and treasures including books, glasses and bottles, old toys, china, vintage tins, post cards and retro film posters. For a little keepsake or special memoir of a day well spent, pop by and pick up something unique.
Cosmopolitan Sea Point lies between Mouille Point, Green Point and Bantry Bay. Its vibrancy is created by the multitude of shops, restaurants, cafes and its splendid beach front promenade (featuring many children’s playgrounds and jogging tracks).
The iconic Ritz Hotel with its 360° rotating restaurant is still in operation on the dividing line of the main road, above which are the large private villas on the slopes of Signal Hill, below which are the luxurious beachfront apartments lining the promenade.
