About Erin Kruse + Berkley Elleven
“Dreams don’t work unless you do”
I created Berkley Elleven to help out girls like me. I used drive all around to San Francisco or Berkeley to these hole in the wall boutiques to get all my clothes. I hated all the chain stores. I love getting a piece that you know nobody else will have. Anything bohemian inspired with a edgy vibe I dig.
I have always had an obsession with clothes. I could remember things as a child based on what people were wearing at the time... It's strange since I have a terrible memory when it comes to anything else. Being able to be a buyer of all the clothing is literally a dream come true. It is like a little treasure hunt when you find the perfect addition to add to the shop. Everything I choose has to have a little edge to it. I am a mom of 2 amazing boys and I never wanted to dress like a "mom". There is nothing wrong with showing up to pick up your kids in faux fur, platforms, and bell bottoms. :) "If you like it wear it." Who cares what anyone else thinks, right???
Our style is very boho, rockin roll gypsy. We want you to go from riding on the back of a harley to a beach, carried into dancing the night away at a dive bar… always with a cocktail in hand of course. Hoping all your best memories and regrets are while wearing our clothes. This will be a fun ride I promise you so follow us on this gypsy revolution and look like a Berkley Elleven babe while you do it.
Just a few things we love:
- Bells (whether it be a bell sleeve or a bell bottom)
- Cut outs
- Vintage tee’s
- Collar necklaces/ Chokers
- Jewelry in general…. Stack it on!!!
- Rings for days
- Off the shoulder
- Cut offs
- Booties, moto boots
Ending on that another one of our favorite quotes:
“When a woman says,” I have nothing to wear!’, what she really means is there is nothing for who I am supposed to be today” Caitlin Moran
