SF Street Style: Best Friends with Distinctly Different Styles in Union Square

SF Street Style: Best Friends with Distinctly Different Styles, at Union Square

Best friends Anna Wilson (left) and Annie Yu (right) were happy to step out in some post-rain daywear last weekend. I love seeing how different the styles of two best friends can be. Both students at Academy of Art University, Annie wore a trendy layered look with a killer turquoise statement necklace, while Anna's was much more free-spirited with tri-color hair and textured toe-nail polish. 

ACRE/SF Brings Clothing + Coffee to North Beach

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.

SF Street Style: European Family Style at Off The Grid
