Curious which local spots outfit the city’s most stylish? Style expert Jennifer Henry-Novich of fashion blog Just Add Glam reveals on Google+ Local which fashion havens keep her coming back for more:
Acrimony is my FAVORITE for casual, essential pieces that last forever with excellent quality and craftsmanship. The shop’s layout is perfect for casual shopping and the staff is super attentive and helpful in selecting pieces for you or friends and family. When I’m looking for high-quality basics and unique pieces…Acrimony is my place.
I love Azalea because I know I can always find something unique here. I love this boutique for its boots and leather jackets as well as some of the more girly, flirty dresses. They throw a lot of events here too which is always fun to check out! Nothing like a little shopping and champagne!
Its no secret that I’m a designer deals girl. I love checking out the sales at Jeremy’s for super high-end designer goods but at a fraction of the price. One of my favorite scores was a pair of Manolo Blahnik flats for $38 (originally $565). However, since many of the items are from runway or sample sales, they can be damaged and require some love from your local alternations lady or shoe guy. But in my opinion, the thrill of the designer hunt is too exciting to pass up the sales at Jeremy’s!
I love heading over to Pinkies in Potrero Hill for my idea of a relaxing happy hour–getting a manicure and pedicure while shopping for on-trend fashion jewelry. The setting of the salon is great because it is more than just a nail salon. It truly is a spa boutique with large displays of necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings carefully curated and decorated amongst the salon. As far as nail services, I love how Pinkies has by far the largest collection of gel nail polish colors in all of San Francisco–they must have over 50 different shades. The staff is amazingly sweet and attentive and really make you feel like you are a guest in their nail-boutique-of-happiness home.
For special events, I like to have a dress or gown that makes me feel unique from the rest of the crowd. Enter Azadeh. I discovered this couture boutique a few months ago and since then have been incredibly impressed with their designs. Their collections always are impressive with the excellent tailoring techniques and use the most gorgeous fabrics I’ve ever seen (all hand selected and sourced from Paris). They have locations in San Francisco, Beverly Hills, and New York City and can work directly with you to ensure your dress or gown fits perfectly like a glove. For a party dress to wow them all, all you need is Azadeh!
