Ojai is a destination known more for art and nature than fashion,

but Angeleno Jennie Prebor is part of a new wave helping to change that with her boutique Blanchesylvia, named for her grandmother and mother. In the Schiaparelli pink–accented shop, the art-world veteran stocks local labels like Eva Franco, Tatiana Shabelnik and Sarah Johnson alongside beauty products by WTR Essence and Chroma, handmade objects, art and the shop’s namesake line of jewelry, bags and clothing. She also has plans to work with Los Angeles nonprofit LA><ART to show and sell artist editions. Says Prebor, “My goal is to create a welcoming, engaging space where people can find a gift and learn something new—about a book, artist, fabric or antique.” 212A E. Ojai Ave., Ojai.
