Lauren Wolf, the rustic-luxe jewelry designer who also runs East Bay boutique Esqueleto, may have spent the bulk of her career so far in New York City, but she has quickly become an Oakland expert. Her shop is located in Temescal Alley, an area that has garnered major caché among the stylish set in the Bay Area. So Of a Kind, a site that tells the stories and sells limited-number wares from designers, was wise to tap Wolf as their Temescal-neighborhood tour guide. Plan your next visit to the area with her tips and recommendations, which range from horticulture to fashion to a boxing gym.
