San Francisco's Union Square

Union Square is San Francisco's answer to Rodeo Drive. I rank Union Square as the #1 place in the Bay Area to get any sort of real shopping done and plus, the feel of shopping in the heart of SF is hard to beat. I usually try to make it out to Union Square at least once a year, usually around the holiday season since the whole area is decked out in Christmas spirit :) The selection of stores is great and you'll probably have more luck finding stuff in your size here than in LA. I dragged my mom to the new Barneys in Union Square today and boy was I disappointed. This BNY is as tiny as tiny can be, the selection is inevitably smaller, and I kept getting the feeling that the SAs had no idea what they were doing. I was also disappointed to find out that the huge ass Macys uses real kittens and puppies as part of their window displays...animal labor is just as bad as child labor people!!!! Those poor lonely, cooped up babies :( Anyhow, my mom and I mostly did a lot of window shopping and oh, um....I finally, Finally, FINALLY GOT THOSE YSL MARYJANES!!!!! Well, I guess I shouldn't jump for joy just yet...the YSL boutique at Union Square didn't have anything in my size but the SA placed a request for me for the YSL in Hawaii. So if everything goes according to plan, I should be expecting those shoes from Hawaii in about a week or so :) I'll update with pictures as soon as I get those suckers...
