Look of the Week: Patriotic Panache

This week we were faced with a style dilemma that always leaves us a bit perplexed: how to pull off red, white and blue without looking like, well, a contestant in the Miss Liberty pageant. Don't get us wrong, we usually jump at any excuse to get a bit themed-out and the Fourth of July happens to be one of the best reasons to do so, but this year we decided to skip the star-spangled bikini and opt for something a bit more seaside chic. So without further ado, our look of the week:

Designer Jellies: Childhood Fave Turned Chic?

Like it or not, jelly sandals are back in a big way this summer. Luckily our statement shoe of choice in elementary school has grown up a bit since the playground days, revamped by a few of our favorite designers. Despite our love for nostalgia, we've been hesitant to embrace this trend as of yet but now we're dying to scoop up a pair in every color. After all, the flip-flop's edgier cousin looks equally as fresh for day or night. Check out some of our favorite finds:

Link Love: A Glimpse at Anna Sui's Gossip Girl Line and Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes at Gap

A Look Back at Two Style Icons

Yesterday's devastating loss of two irreplaceable icons and the ensuing buzz that occured left us thinking that sometimes it's best to simply take a look back at the feathered beauty and King of Pop's most memorable looks and let the images speak for themselves:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Farrah Fawcett

 

Look of the Week: Pride Edition

It's official, Pride is in the air. Something about the combination of giant rainbow flags waving down Market Street and the warm summer air is bringing out the best of San Franciscan's wardrobes, which has us perpetually thinking about what on earth we're going to wear to the Pride festivities this weekend. After a bit of deliberation, we opted for an outfit that's a bit more discreet than gold sequins and feather boas, yet still exudes a carefree vibrance that is the nature of such an SF institution.

 

1. Free People Peacock Romper, $108: Show off your pride in this peacock-printed number that is just as practical as it is pretty.

 

 

Sidewalk Chic: Modern Vintage in the Wharf

Name: Rahel Pearson

Age: 25

Occupation: Graduate student at the University of Amsterdam, studying Clinical Psychology

Spotted: 7x7 Best Of party at Ghirardelli Square, 7:58 p.m.

Wearing: Dress from Thrift Town, jacket from Painted Bird, Chanel shoes, Alexander Wang bag

Favorite fashion decade: "1920's meets minimalist 90's with some 80's glitter."

If you could have one thing this season, what would it be? "A Cartier tank francaise in rose gold."

Our Favorite SF Shops for Summer Frocks

 

Since summer has decided to visit San Francisco for the week, there's no better time to get out and enjoy the sunshine and few better ways to do that than with a little shopping. We put on our walking heels today and hit the sidewalk to track down the best airy sundresses the city has to offer. And since most of us are stuck in front of a computer all day, we made sure they also have websites.

 

 

 

1. See by Chloé Daisy Rosette Dress at Azalea, $402.50:

We've been lusting after this vibrant floral number since first laying eyes on it and though it's still a bit pricey on sale, we think it makes an eye-catching investment piece.
