Some may argue that charity begins at home.
But it doesn’t have to stop there. Check out Philanthropist, Jessica Moment and Sally Fowler’s brand new boutique.
The Presidio Heights enclave merges the act of giving with the art of dressing by donating 100 percent of profits to local charities (specifically those with a poverty focus) selected quarterly. First up: Raphael House, a Tenderloin shelter for children and families.
Guiltlessly shop for frocks by Richard Chai, Zac Posen, and Robin Brouillette, and denim, coats, and blouses by contemporary faves like Adam, Gary Graham, and Wayne. Accessorize with handbags by Rebecca Minkoff and to-die baubles, including jeweled cuffs by Tom Binns.
And stop at the champagne and cupcake bar.
It gives whole new meaning to sweet charity.
Philanthropist, 3571 Sacramento Street, between Laurel and Locust Streets (415-441-1750 or philanthropistboutique.com).
