RGB Shop + Gallery
If you ask us, this funky art-gallery-slash-boutique hits all the right notes. With a stellar collection of super-colorful and graphic threads, kicks, and accessories from the likes of Feral Childe, Baggu, and Matt Bernson, it’s no wonder this design-inspired haven continues to have us awe-inspired. It's like wandering into a way-stylish coloring book — only you get to actually take the goodies home. Score!
RGB Shop + Gallery, 3024 Fillmore Street (at Union Street).
The purveyor of all things Cali-cute and cozy, this quaint shop holds it down with an amazing collection of locally inspired cards and candles, Pendleton threads that are oh-so perfect for the S.F. fog, Clare Vivier leather pouches and purses, and Job & Boss totes. It's a dreamy, unsuspecting retail escape in the heart of Cow Hollow.

After walking into this adorable Union Street shop, it’s easy to become a cult follower of Chloe Rose. The boutique is one of the very few places in the city to score fresh, off-the-runway Rebecca Minkoff accessories, and supply on-trend sophisticated pieces that work in and out of the office. No doubt, we’d be thrilled to clock in a few hours in those threads!

Want to get lost for an hour plus? Look no further than this Russian Hill designer-consignment shop. The beloved neighborhood joint is split into two sections. Contemporary brands like Tory Burch, Tibi, and A.L.C. cluster one side of the boutique — all color-coded so they're easy to navigate. Meanwhile, the other side of the space is a jumble of super-high-end European goods by the likes of Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Celine, etc. To give you a sense of the prices, we once scored a perfect leopard YSL platform for $125 and a pretty See by Chloe frock for $120. The best part: All purchases are wrapped up in pretty packaging and embellished with a fresh flower. Très chic!
