When I was living in Seattle, I always felt that boutiques were few and far between. They were challenging to get to and my favorite ones were all spread out in different neighborhoods which didn’t make things very convenient. In San Francisco though, I can pick and choose any neighborhood I want to go to and be satisfied with the selection of boutiques that are around me instead of feeling like I need to hop from one neighborhood to another. One of my favorite areas happens to be Hayes Valley. There are quite a few here that are near and dear to my heart including Azalea and Oak + Fort, but today we’re showing some love to Seldom Seen! I think I first learned about Seldom Seen about 6 months ago through another Bay Area blog and made a point to visit the boutique the next time I was shopping in Hayes. SS is co-founded by Natasha Wong and is a relatively young boutique featuring both men and women’s fashion.
Here are some photos from my first visit, but I’ve actually been in twice now and had the opportunity to meet Natasha who is just the sweetest! It’s hard not to fall in love with the pieces when you visit or just the store in general. You can also visit their online shop here.
