Harrods Girl shops San Francisco II: Haight Street

Haight Street is the street where San Francisco people who like to shop in little boutiques and vintage/ second hand clothing stores go to. Well, at least that's what my local cousin told me and took me to. Here's the report:

I was not impressed by the second hand clothing stores, but that's only because I hate that stuffy-old-clothes-smell, not to mention that I never buy used things. The little boutiques had very good selected collection of clothes, but most of them can be bought for cheaper prices in larger chain stores out in the city. And you never know if the clothes are actually from this season or last season, (the horror of buying last season clothes at regular prices!)

But then I came across this store.

So Good jewelry - My first impression was oh my gosh, this is it -that dream jewelry store I have been searching all over the world for!! When I first walked in, I saw a whole wall of fashionable earrings that weren't too pricey.

Then I turned to my left and found much more...

The whole wall, and I mean all of it, is covered with necklaces. I absolutely LOVED the selection there and spent like, half an hour just looking through it.

I liked a lot of them, but at the end, I bought this one: made with lots of little beads, fake crystals and pearls. Isn't it sooo pretty? It was only $9.99 and it will go with well, again all my outfits this season.

Both of these photos show their amazing belt/ waist accessories selection. The beaded belts are so cute and would go well with casual summer outfits, whereas the metal ones would be perfect for the vintage look. I really liked the vintage-looking belts, but alas, I didn't see much practical use in it, especially since it looks too dressy for college and not quite suitable for city night life.
So if you ever visit San Francisco esp if you know someone who lives there and you have a car, then you must visit this wonderful little jewelry boutique!

I don't usually get too excited about jewelry, but I think that I could spend a lot of time in a shop like this. I don't know what they did... but it worked!

So shiny! That looks great! I'm going to San Francisco in the beginning of September right before school starts, and I am so going to Haight Street to check out "So Good."

I love reading your articles. Thank you, Barney Girl and Harrods Girl for your excellent insights into fashion :)

I agree, to sell all this so cheaply...many poor workers must be slaving away for nothing. I wouldn't wear it...I love fashion but not this way.

wasting your money on cheap, fake crap, made by 5 year olds in third world countries is a bad move, people. Buy from some real American designers that make quality things that will last you forever, so they can make ends me and maybe even buy themselves something.

Don't support mass produced stuff, it's slave wage!

Sure, If you have the money... But I don't, so I have to either buy my stuff secondhand or at places like this.

Yummmyyy. More mass-produced cheap garbage for Americans to eat up. That stuff is tacky and poorly made by little girls and little boys in foreign countries.

I was just in San Fran last week (visiting). I LOVED this store, BUT had a rather unforunately accident. I bought 5 bracelets.. all very unique. I LOST THE BAG! Some where between the store & the car. I can't believe it. Anyone planning to go back and would like to pick up something for me?
