Azalea
956 Valencia St., Mission
Corina Nurimba and Catherine Chow, the two Cornell grads behind Azalea, are big believers that shopping should be an experience, and a pleasant one at that. This means that customer service is priority number one at both the original Hayes Valley outpost and the newer one in the Mission. The stores are split into men's and women's sections and do a really great job of staying current and affordable with the brand offering but not super trend-driven in the assortment (Topman and Nudie jeans for guys; OAK, T by Alexander Wang, and the house line for gals).

Bell’occhio
10 Brady St., Hayes Valley
Bell’Occhio, with its French-y, almost fantastical vibe, looks like a shop you might have walked into, in say, 1895, on a hidden, cobbled street in Montparnasse, Paris. For over 26 years, the shop has enticed customers with antique ribbons and stationery, French sewing supplies, and elegant gift wrap, the gift wrapping services to go with, not to mention calligraphy services courtesy of a former White House calligrapher. And should you want an even bigger slice of the fantasy, they offer interior design services, too.
