Shop Talk: Femme Fair, Custom Superga Sneakers + Colleen Mauer Sample Sale

By

"I shop, therefore I am."—Heather Chandler


Shop Your Favorite Bloggers' Closets on Saturday

The fashion blogosphere meets the Real World on Saturday afternoon, March 18, when Femme Fair hits SoMa. The SF blogger bazaar is your chance to literally shop the wardrobes of 10 chic local bloggers including Allergic to Vanilla and Stylenik, as well as pop-ups from the likes of Cuyana, Alyssa Nicole and Katie Dean Jewelry. Also get psyched for lots of yummy (and complimentary) sips and nibbles, a la an Aperol Spritz bar and Three Twins Ice Cream. A temporary metallic tattoo station, a Braid Bar pop-up and tunes from DJ That Girl round out the fun. Not bad for an idea that co-founders/bloggers Stacey de León, Christina Chinn and Melissa Landestoy hatched "to have a little blogger garage sale." Tickets are $15 (not available at the door). // The event runs from 1pm to 5pm at 444 8th St (SoMa).
