7 Style Questions for Arielle:
1. What are your best-kept-secret boutiques in SF?
I love Luna and Elizabeth Charles. They carry really beautiful designers you can't find anywhere else. I also hit up the sales at Jeremy's and Cary.Lane. I like Lang Antiques for jewelry.
2. What are your beauty must-dos?
Brazilian blowouts! They save me 30 minutes a day. And a good manicure. I go to Ele Ela in the Mission for very affordable Gelish manis!
3. Who do you trust with your tresses?
Cristina at Oxenrose. She makes me blonde and beautiful.
4. Who or what influences your style?
Street style blogs like this one.
5. What's your biggest style peeve?
I hate when people dress for safaris while in the city. You wouldn't wear a Prada blazer out in the woods, so why wear a North Face fleece in the city?
6. What are you coveting right now?
A Celine purse -- no question.
7. What are you most excited to put on this fall?
I can't wait to be engulfed by cashmere.
