Looking for a guide to Mission shops and boutiques in San Francisco’s most indie-minded neighborhood? Et voila.
A story I’d been working on for several weeks ran in yesterday’s San Francisco Chronicle Style section, complete with a map to guide you to some of the Mission’s newest and most intriguing shops for apparel and accessories from vintage and local, independent sources. If you missed it in print, you can check it out online:
Also, anyone who appreciates vintage and work by local folks will get a kick out of all the hateraid-laced comments following the article. It constantly astounds me how quick people are to vilify anything to do with shopping, fashion or style. Last time I checked, most of us were pretty attached to wearing clothes. So if you’re going to put something on your body when you leave the house in the morning, isn’t buying something interesting, unique, eco-friendly and local preferable to just throwing money at fast fashion? Regardless, I never see such harsh comments when it comes to local stories about food, cocktails or cars.
