Remember last Thursday when I wrote about Chance’s latest collection + joining the Stripe Mania Party? Well, the next day I found out Chance was having a pop-up store in Rand + Statler in Hayes Valley, SF…and I thought, what better timing could this be? It was like a sign telling me to get on the floor with this Stripe Mania party already! So what I’ve decided to do was to have a little fun by wearing stripes while shopping stripes!
The first thing that caught my eye was this canvas day tote. I love the colors, the way the stripes were designed, and how soft the canvas was. it was like seeing stripes at its best!!
And the Turkish Foutas I said I loved so much and wanted it in every color? It was at the trunk show! The feeling of actually touching the product vs. seeing it online was unbeatable. The fabric of this foutas felt really soft yet very durable; it’s no joke when they said you can use it as a picnic blanket and as an evening wrap!
By the way, if I have one wish, I wish I can eat the whole bowl of stripe cookies without gaining a pound! :)
Do I need more stripes in my closet? Oh YES I do!!
As I was making my way out on Hayes, I couldn’t resist trying a freshly made scoop from the newly opened Smitten Ice-Cream. Every scoop is made to order and freshly churned – right in front of your eyes!
Instead of pre-freezing their ice-cream, they use liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice-cream on the spot, kinda like what you see on Top Chef Masters. The result? One of the creamiest and most natural ice-cream I’ve ever tasted!! It’s a bit of a splurge on something as simple as ice-cream, but it’s definitely worth a try, especially on days when you need to give yourself a treat. :)
