The 100th Bay to Breakers: Style For (7.46) Miles

I know I wasn't the only one checking my weather app to the latest hour Saturday night. But the early rise of the 100th Bay to Breakers made way for a celebratory sunshiney day. Win. While most witness the cheesy, outrageous, and risque on annual race day, I was on the prowl for some style shenanigans...

Popular trends were Black Swan beauties, '80s Jazzercise and elaborate headgear (San Franciscans sure love their wigs), but the most coveted were Navajo-inspired cuties. Elaborate headdresses, turquoise jewelry, tribal paint, ponchos, and jean shorts — gear fit for play, and Breaker battle.
