Calling all bridge & tunnelers, tourists and yes, even you locals -- there's a new reason to head out to North Beach, and it's not for a night of epic boozing, but rather, for a daytime tryst. That's right, take a little urban hike out to Acrimony's amazing new sister-store, ACRE/SF, a cafe-clothier that recently opened on Telegraph Hill.
For her latest retail endeavor, local fashion darling Jenny Chung chose to open a concept store that incorporates the little pleasures in life: clothing, accessories and a good cup of coffee. Twice the size of Acrimony, the loftly new storefront houses a full boutique and cafe, serving keenly fresly brewed Blue Bottle coffee, an assortment of bottled beverages, daily pastries from House of Bagels, and even some It's-Its ice creams sandwiches. That's right, ladies and gents -- shopping just got a lot sweeter.
With a warm holiday weekend in sight, our thoughts have turned to the three B's: barbeque, booze and balance. Finding the perfect balance between practical and pretty, that is, and few pieces achieve this better than the romper. This effortlessly hip cousin of the dress is an ideal choice for outdoor mingling and looks especially fresh when polished off with sweet accessories that scream spring. Now grab some sunscreen and get outside!
