Shop Your Heart Out: Our Ultimate S.F. Store Guide, Plus Exclusive Deals

We aren't being presumptuous here, but we definitely believe that R29 and S.F. were made for each other, like cats and the internet, nail art and Instagram, or the Bay Area and microclimates. In fact, the locally oriented and laid-back vibe around here makes us think, between you and us, that if our site were a city, we might be San Francisco. (Just don't tell our other cities. They might get jealous!)

So, when it came to picking our 29 favorite stores in the entire city, we had quite a task in front of us. From vintage treasure troves to the hot Valencia Street strip, store-hopping in the Bay Area is one of best parts of living on the West (Best!) Coast. Fortunately, our sharp S.F. editor Katie Hintz-Zambrano was up to the challenge.

In fact, her top spots not only hit every price point and occasion to shop, but S.F.'s best boutiques, which range from thrift meccas and cool collectives to high-fashion venues and surf-y beachside shops, run such a colorful gamut you'll be hard-pressed to not leave your desk immediately for a shopping excursion.

Such a diverse selection is like the city itself (microclimates and all). Wanna see our faves? Peep our thoroughly vetted picks at our new Stores We Love hub and we promise you'll be pleased. And, while you're ogling the eye-candy, make sure to scoop up some of the amazing (and exclusive) deals we scored for you! Read 'em below, and get to shopping!
