the san francisco {shopping} treat



Top: The Row (similar style here); Shirt: Topshop (similar style here); Shoes: J.W. Anderson X Aldo; Sunglasses: Celine; Lips: MAC "Ruby Woo"; Necklaces: Jennifer Zeuner (here and here)

While I've lived in San Francisco for close to 4 years now, I still like to think I'm exploring little pockets of the city all the time and LOVE discovering new gems to visit (and revist and revisit and revisit ... you get the picture). Nearest and dearest to my heart, of course, is the shopping this city has to offer (restaurants are a close second -- we'll save that for another day though). Here are a few favorite shopping haunts of mine that I love to frequent -- I hope they treat you well!

Jeremy's: I can't sing enough praises for this place -- the ultimate discount designer department store with some of the greatest sale staff around. Ever wondered where I scored this, this, this and this (at a fraction of their original costs?). Well, now you know. Plus, they're located in the super cute nook-like neighborhood of South Park, where you can grab a great brunch at The Butler and the Chef after shopping.

Elizabeth & Charles: This cozy boutique is right up the way from my apartment on Fillmore, so I love popping in while running weekend errands, just to see what new items they have in. Expect lots of Isabel Marant, Kenzo, Carven and Roksanda Ilincic. 

Curve: Also right up the way from me on Fillmore, Curve is quickly becoming one of my go-to stops for statement jewelry (expect lots of modern designers like Tom Bins mixed with fun estate pieces). They also carry lots of Proenza, so #GameOver for me.  ;)

Sui Generis: Another designer consignment store, Sui Generis is great for older, more vintage pieces, but I tend to always make a beeline for their shoes. 

The Real Real: OK, so maybe this is cheating a bit since The Real Real is a designer flash sale site and not an actual store, but I tend to think of them as more local since they're based in the Bay Area. I love getting a great deal, especially on designer clothing -- and have been hooked on The Real Real for going on a few years now. My prized loot includes this guy, this guy and,who could forget, this guy. And there's plenty more where that came from. You can sign up for membership with my code right here.
