Look out for the BLUE LIGHT SPECIALS - San Francisco

Look out for the BLUE LIGHT SPECIALS

K-Mart: Look Ken! BLUE LIGHT SPECIALS! Department Stores Review

Where else can one find, Martha Stewart (pre-indictment) Everyday brand housewares, Joe Boxer underwear, Kathy Ireland swimwear, and buy popcorn, peanuts, apple jacks and candy kisses all under one roof?

K-MART of course! K-mart has been around since I was a little tyke hiding in the car so my friends won't see me shop there! Now that store is a GODSEND for Q-Tips, Dishwashing liquid.........everything you need for your home!

There are very few K-mart storechains left around the Bay Area. Most have been replaced by mega-TARGET stores and the Wal-Mart empire.

K-mart will always be a symbol of my youth. When I used kick and scream when my mother would drag me there as a kid!

What to buy: Q-tips, dishwashing liquid, toilet paper......EVERYTHING your household needs!

What to pay: Cheaper than Target

Directions: Look for the big red K

Theme: Other

Alla Prima: Prelude to Dinner Clothing Stores Review

We had a 5:30pm dinner reservation with our fellow VTers in San Francisco. We were half an hour early......what are two VT women supposed to do? (Bond_Girl and Geisha_Girl). SHOP FOR LINGERIE of course!!

We stumbled upon this lovely boutique 2 doors down from the restaurant, Cafe Jacqueline on Grant St. What a find!

What to buy: Alla Prima is without a doubt, one of the best lingerie shops in the city. A great place to get *special* items, as well as the everyday basics. With a friendly staff, it's a great place to pick up a wide selection of brands such as La Perla, Audabe, and Cosabella.

What to pay: Their prices are much better than the Dept. stores.

Address: 1420 Grant St., San Francisco CA

Directions: I think every woman will agree that the best way to *perk* up those down days is to wear your sexiest lingerie underneath your business attire.....only YOU knowing you have it on will make you smile!

Shanghai Tang (sorry, there's not one in SF!): Have your friends shop for you while they travel! Clothing Stores Review

The beauty about having good friends with GREAT taste, is that they always get you the GOOD STUFF while traveling abroad!

What to buy: Shanghai Tang is a famous chain of boutiques in Hong Kong, London, New York.....what's in the box? Something silky, sexy, and very very much for a lady who loves to lounge!
