Last month, the CHOLAs booked to San Francisco to enjoy BAY AREA livin' and visit our friends that retail HAN CHOLO. First... We stopped by TRUE SF to politic about the happenings in San Francisco and what they have cooking up.
TRUE SF Boutique (1415 haight St, SF 94117) is an old school storefront located in the heart of the Haight, San Francisco, CA, featuring street brands such as Alife, Diamond Supply Co., and many more. TRUE not only sells clothing, but also music from upcoming and local dope artist usually played during business hours.
With True SOLE and True East, the TRUE brand has finally hit their 15 year mark and will be celebrating with a huge SUMMER PARTY and a limited edition black on black SF VARSITY JACKET... Stay tuned…

We then stopped at Ambiance and Villains Shoes for a little shopping since we were in the area.
Hunger finally took over our bodies so we scurried over to PAPALOTE 1117 Fulton @ Masonic to enjoy their CHICKEN ADOBO BURRITOs with their ROASTED TOMATO SALSA.
Then we made our way to HAYES VALLEY to visit our PEOPLE over at AZALEA.
The AZALEA SF (411 Hayes St, SF 94102) cluster is a juxtaposition of three boutiques located in the Hayes Valley district of San Francisco. AZALEA began as one store that grew into multiple boutiques WELCOME STRANGER and RAND + STATLER (only a month old).
The AZALEA SF is more on the contemporary side for both men and woman mostly retailing the basics and denim. AZALEA also sells HAN CHOLO.
