Our first impression after meeting Sherri McMullen? This woman has style running through her veins and a closet to kill for. Which we suppose isn’t that surprising given the fact that she owns the expertly curated McMullen in Oakland. Now in its tenth year, the Grand Avenue shop is filled with stand-out garments just begging for a double-take, including pieces by Ryan Roche, Rosie Assoulin, and Mother favorites Ulla Johnson and Sea New York. And while great style might have marked our first impression of McMullen, after spending some more time with the single mama of 15-month-old Frederick, her strength to forge ahead after losing her mother at a young age, as well as her determination to realize her own dreams, is what we’ll ultimately walk away with. See what we mean, below.

I’m super proud of you li’l sis! The story of your life was written well and your journey has been phenomenal! You are an inspiration to so many young ladies and a great pillar in your community. Frederick is very blessed to have you as a mommy. Cheers to 10 years of McMullen! Love you!

      Just moved to Oakland and can’t wait to visit your store (especially for that navy Ulla Johnson dress. I also love the bookcase in your son’s room. Do you mind sharing where it’s from, as I’m guessing your store doesn’t carry furniture as well ;)

        Thank you Nicole! I look forward to your visit and welcome to Oakland. :) I found the bookcase from a store called Homeroom or Homegoods in Moraga. You can find furniture, linens, home accessories.
