Hayes Valley SF

Hayes Valley: a mecca for those who shun expensive mainstream designers and instead prefer to partake of expensive indie designers instead.

I love this place.

A few of my favorite places to gaze longingly into:

  • Gimme Shoes.
  • Bulo.
  • Rand+Statler
  • Azalea Boutique.
  • Nida Boutique.
  • Reliquary.

A few places that I have actually stopped gazing longingly into, and bought something:

  • Chantal Guillon.
  • Steven Alan.
  • Cary Lane. 
Hayes Valley: Rand + Statler

Azalea, Welcome Stranger, and Rand + Statler, purveyors of chic, covetable pieces for future SF-hipster-white-collar, college-educated-yuppie life.

I wander around Hayes Valley all the time, and it makes my Gucci wallet cry and vomit dollars, but it’s a great reminder that I need to keep working hard. In particular, I love derpily window-shopping and occasionally dropping money at the family of boutiques that comprises Azalea/Welcome Stranger/Rand + Statler whenever I feel like an irresponsible undergrad and need a little something to keep my appetite for ambition whetted. 

I took one of my friends here, after a spectacularly shitty week. He dropped some money on a man-wallet that I found myself salivating over:

Last weekend, I bought this gem that I had been lusting after for a while: the Giles & Brother railroad spike cuff.
