Here's Linna Trinh, looking fabulous at Off The Grid, Fort Mason. Bay Area summer's are all about layering, and this look hits all the right lengths. Linna's ultra-cool, cream leather jacket has such a great cut, and a nice, relaxed fit. I couldn't believe she found it at a thrift store -- talk about a major score! It just goes to show, you can mix designer pieces (check out Linna's Balenciaga bag below) with thrift store finds, to make a composed, down-to-Earth look.
What she's wearing: Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses purchased at Cheaters Too in the Marina. Thrifted cream leather jacket. Star printed t-shirt from Urban Outfitters. Black A Moveable Feast sweater from Aritzia. Necklace by Bing Bang, NYC. Light blue leather Balenciaga bag from Neiman Marcus. Black Gap capris and Jeffrey Campbell cut-out oxfords from SoleStruck.
Try a unique color, like this robin egg blue Balenciaga, for an everyday bag with some pop.
I'm digging everything from the summery cut-out design, to the fun tassles and perforation detail on these cool Jeffrey Campbell kicks.
7 Style Questions for Linna:
1. Where are your favorite places to shop in SF?
I do most of my shopping online because it is so convenient. The few places I pay a visit to occasionally are Barney's, and Canton Bazaar. Love the mix of brands Barney's carries and their sales are awesome. I go to Anthropologie to check out their amazing displays that I call art (Golden Gate Bridge made out of Rice-A-Roni right now!), and their home stuff is just too charming to pass up. As for Canton Bazaar, that place is a gem. They have all sort of cool knick-knacks that are great for gifts or as home decor. It's a tourist joint but I come here all the time to find unique items that won't burn a hole in my wallet.
2. What is your most prized accessory?
I have a lot, but my all-time favorite is my Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra turquoise ring. It puts a smile on my face every single time I look at it.
3. If money wasn't an issue, what would you buy right now?
I would fly myself to Japan or Europe to the actual Leica store and purchase the special edition M7 or M9. It's a lovely accessory, and purchasing at a local dealer is not the same.
4. What do you value more, a good pair of shoes or great bag?
5. Where do you get styled?
Hair: Preston at Acme Head and Body.
Nails: Sassi Salon in the Marina. It's off the beaten path, but this place is so much better than the shops on Chestnut. They take their time and are very meticulous.
6. Who are your style icons?
Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, Ali McGraw, Jerry Hall.
7. Where are your favorite places to kick back in SF?
I'm really liking Flora Grubb Gardens. I was never into stuff like that, but this place is amazing.
