mira mira

I'm ecstatic to report that there's a very cool new boutique in my neighborhood. Mira Mira just opened up a week ago on 22nd at Valencia, and it's already buzzing with fashionistas. I stopped by last weekend during a shopping tour of the Mission with fellow blogger, Becca, of Free Honey. Becca just moved to San Francisco and I offered to show her around my favorite hood. I'd already been to most places on the tour, so it was refreshing to find Mira Mira. The focus of the store is European designers that are big over on that continent but still new to us. Mira, the owner, pointed out some really cute TBA (To Be Adored) pieces and showed us what she wanted to order from the Fall catalog. Mira Mira will be hosting monthly "girls nights" featuring trunk shows, clothing swaps, feather extensions, movie nights, and champagne coolies. I put myself on the mailing list so I'll let you know when I hear about the next one.

  4. Hi Elisabeth! This is Lisa, Caroline's friend from Whitman. I am going to be in the Bay area all next week and I plan on spending a day exploring in the Mission! I was hoping you would have some wallet friendly suggestions for me- I'm a good thrifter and a vintage lover so those types of places are my favorites. Also maybe one of your top picks for mexican food? Thanks and I'll be by your parents house for a night or two if you are coming to see the Whitman gang.
