If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some dandelions in your hair…

After a long six hour drive of missing important freeway exits, slowing down at the smallest whimper of my radar detector, and obsessively sipping my caramel frappacino, I’m finally back from San Francisco! I had an amazing weekend with my girls! Here are some great pictures of some shopping we did along the way that I’d love to share with you! 

IMG_0401First of all, How amazing are these shoes?! My friend Becca bought them on Haight street. After flipping through Elle Magazine (the September Issue), Becca decided that she needed some purple suede heels as soon as possible. On Haight St. in Ambiance, we found this gorgeous pair. Now they may look expensive, but they were only $38!!! They’re by Anne Michelle. I think they’re just perfect for Fall. With a pair of knee high stockings and a cute mini, they would be adorable! 

Becca pairs her shoes with a cream colored blouse and a black skirt both from H&M

On Haight, I made a few finds of my own. In my favorite store, Wasteland I found a Yves Saint Laurent variation jacket. It’s a really beautiful peacoat with slightly puffy sleeves. When I bought the jacket, the guy who rung me up told me that the variation collection is the funkier/less old lady side of YSL. The variation side is younger and more fun to wear. You can find more YSL variation on Ebay. I especially love the buttons on the jacket. I bought the jacket for $68.

I also found really great stuff at H&M. Is it me or has the store gotten significantly more expensive? Still cute…but isn’t H&M supposed to be relatively cheap way to sport trends? I bought a great purple velvet shift dress. (An awesome way to rock the velvet trend I have previously blogged about!) I can’t wait to find boots to pair the dress with! 

Later in the week, My friends and I went to Anthropologie. Let’s just say we did some damage this weekend. Heidi and Becca both walked away with really cute finds at Anthro. Becca found this great yellow cropped jacket. Her style is very old-fashioned so this fits her perfectly!

Speaking of YSL

Everything Yves Saint Laurent makes is beautiful, but I’m especially talking about their accessories. My mom just bought these new shoes from YSL. I seriously love them. The neutral color makes legs look miles long. Plus, the platform is just the right amount of crazy. I don’t when I’m going to EVER be able to borrow them! Most likely, never!

I also just love the YSL Besace Flap Bag Sienna Miller has been carrying around. I love a great gray bag. It looks very functional with the cute strap detailing on the front.

Behold Barney’s!

While Barney’s is my all time FAVORITE store, I don’t get to visit the clothing mecca very often. This weekend, I took another trip up to San Francisco and managed to sneak into the Barney’s in Union Square. Since I’m not a frequent visitor, I make sure to savor my Barney’s trips as if they were my last bite of Pinkberry. I take the time to carefully browse through each piece of clothing–basking in each piece’s unique, innovative design, running my fingers over the rare, elegant fabrics, and memorizing the names of the store’s newly carried designers. This time, I even managed to bring my iphone and snap some pictures along the way…here are some amazing pieces from Barney’s I snapped and some that I wish I snapped (thus, I took pictures from the website)…
