Buy your favorite e-only brands IRL at Re:store, which celebrates its grand opening on Thursday, August 8th with fashion, fun and food. The three-story, lilac-hued, Insta-ready space is brimming with a curated collection of clothes, handbags, shoes, sunnies, beauty products, jewelry, and more from covetable labels that don't have their own brick-and-mortars—or at least not in SF (yet). Brands on offer include Sézane, Mansur Gavriel, & Other Stories, Lisa Says Gah, House of Sunny, Dirty Lemon, Bing Bang, Clae, Wild One, Sleepy Jones, etc. Swag alert: The first 100 people who show up on Thursday will receive a gift bag and a $5 token for Off The Grid food trucks with any purchase. Doors open at 10am. Yes, this is gonna be a goodie and, yes, there will be a long queue; do what you must. // 120 Maiden Lane (FiDi), visitrestore.com; register for the opening at Eventbrite.
The Powell Street Walgreens just upped its beauty game by, like, a lot.

Birchbox and Walgreens have been in a relationship since last December. There was really no reason for us to be aware of this coupling until now—because, as of Wednesday, August 7th, Birchbox at Walgreens has debuted at SF's Powell Street location. The store-within-a-store is a beauty freak's dream, a chance to try out one of the original beauty-box subscription services and shop prestige brands not typically available at the drugstore. These include makeup, skincare, and haircare products from the likes of Wander Beauty, RMS, Winky Lux, Sand & Skye, Beachwaver, and more. For a limited time, you can BYOB (build your own Birchbox) for F-R-E-E with the purchase of a subscription. Sign us up, guys. P.S. A second, smaller version of the concept recently opened at the Walgreens in Daly City. // 135 Powell St. (Union Square); 216 Westlake Circle (Daly City), walgreens.com

Warby Parker has had brick-and-mortar shops in SF, Berkeley, and Palo Alto for a while now. And starting Saturday, August 10th, the Village at Corte Madera becomes the eyewear brand's first Marin spot. Like all WP shops, the space is library-like with sleek oak shelving and lots of full-length mirrors, ideal for scrutinizing all those glasses you're bound to try on/take off a gazillion times. An original mural by artist Jason Jägel adds a unique touch to the interior, while a cool custom-designed tile pattern frames the façade. The full breadth of Warby's optical, sunglass, and kids' collections are available. // Village at Corte Madera, 1628 Redwood Highway (Corte Madera), warbyparker.com

Sacramento Street's much-adored home design boutique St. Frank recently launched a photographic series—its first— in collaboration with Brooklyn artist Robert Malmberg. The limited-edition collection features six stunning images taken in Mexico City, home of many St. Frank artisan partners. "The energy of Mexico City was vibrant, bursting with exotic desert plants and primary colors. Most of the frames were captured on film with hopes to expose an analog side of this magical place," Malmberg says. All prints come in two sizes with three framing options. Prices range from $695 to $1,995 for a large framed print. This is the one we're keen to hang on our wall. // 3665 Sacramento St. (Presidio Heights) stfrank.com
