Are you looking for a cute trendy outfit or a special Christmas gift? In this episode of Ramona Revealed, I’m going to take you to Uptown Boutique, a great shop full of amazing items. We’ll chat with owner Andrea to get an idea of everything that Uptown Boutique has to offer.
A Unique Boutique
Uptown Boutique is located in the heart of Ramona on Main Street. Owner Andrea stocks her store with unique items that are a little out of the realm of Ramona. They don’t have many Western items; rather, they’ve brought in a little bit of regular fashion. Think Ann Taylor Loft mixed with Western.
The clothes are trendy but not cheap, as Andrea offers quality pieces. Some of the best-selling clothing items include Z Supply pajamas and loungewear, a huge obsession that customers love. They also have everyday clothes like graphic tees and jeans, with Judy Blue brand jeans as another top seller.
Everyone calls Judy Blue the “magic jeans.” They’re super stretchy, so they’ll lie to you and tell you that you’re smaller. Andrea is personally obsessed with them as well.
When it comes to helping customers with their fashion choices, Andrea says that shopping needs vary. Sometimes people come in with things that they already have at home to match something they find in the store. Other times, they’ll take a bunch of pictures and we help them work with what they have.
Andrea says she never wants to tell people they look amazing just to push sales, especially because she used to work at Nordstrom and do exactly that. Normally, she lets everyone just look around and, if they need help, she’s always more than happy to work with them.
One thing she often suggests is staple pieces to go with a customer’s wardrobe at home. This includes things like a black dress and a jean jacket. You can then easily accessorize those pieces to create different looks.
Of course, I couldn’t leave Uptown Boutique without doing some shopping of my own. I was looking for some festive stuff like jumpers, jackets, and sweaters, and Andrea helped me out. I tried on the Z Supply Maya Quilted Jacket styled with the Myra Bag—which can be used as a crossbody or a wristlet.
The Maya Jacket can easily be dressed up or down and is perfect to wear in Southern California year-round. It also has pockets and snaps. Another great option that I tried on is the Barefoot Dreams Aztec Dupe Cardigan, which feels like you’re wearing a soft blanket. It’s perfect for cozying up on the couch or going out with your girlfriends.
Andrea had me pair this with the Ivory Double Belt Fedora, which helps brighten the look up and is super pretty. These are just a few of the great pieces you can find here at Uptown Boutique.

Uptown Boutique is a great place to get unique, quality Christmas gifts. They have a 12 Days of Christmas sale, where they every a different sale on each day. After that, they also hold a big blowout sale of everything.
