982 Post St., Tenderloin
The fashion crowd in SF was more than a little excited to find out that Emily Holt, formerly the long-time fashion news editor for Vogue, was bringing her exquisite taste back to her home city in the form of this adorable boutique. In addition to a great assortment of our favorite fashion brands (Paul Andrew Adam Lippes, Miriam Schaffer, and CVC Stones, to start), her shop also carries a great selection of books and greeting cards, plus ceramics and other artisan products from some local makers.
Jay Jeffers—THE STORE
1035 Post St., Tenderloin
Housed in a Tenderloin warehouse originally built in 1910, Jay Jeffers' eponymous store was a long time coming. His design firm has been around since 1999, but it wasn't until 2012 that the long-awaited brick-and-mortar finally opened. The store is a stunning reflection of Jeffers' signature style; eye-catching and interesting without being flashy, and simultaneously comfortable and sophisticated. As for the merchandise, you'll find plenty of bespoke furniture from talented designers and craftsmen, many of whom Jeffers has limited-edition partnerships with. If you're not currently redecorating, there's a healthy selection of books and a few fashion items, plus plenty of throws, pillows, and bar accessories to take home.
