Editors' Picks: Hermès Leather, Lots of Tequila, a Shower for Two, & More
7x7 editors reveal what they're crushing on this week.
Hermès Etrivière Double Tour
I implore you to skip over to Hermès to pick up the Etrivière Double Tour bracelet. It's gorgeous, black, made from black hunter cowhide, and a critical addition to your budding wristwear collection. (The tan one is just as lovely, should the mood strike.)

While the weather is still warm, I'm attempting to turn the concrete breezeway at the back of my flat into a functional patio. I've become obsessed with foxtail ferns—they're so weird and architectural. And I love the outdoor tables and chairs made of recycled metals from the French company Fermob. They carry them at Flora Grubb in an array of styles and colors.

Browsing vintage stores is a form of meditation. Often it’s a bit buzzy and restless, flipping through the racks, unable to find anything that speaks to you. But sometimes, it’s a Kundalini experience when—KAPOW!—your shopping chakras align and the item that needs you is presented by the universe. Take these snakeskin sneakers, discovered by Nob Hill resident Joseph Murphey, who was proffered the groovy kicks by the vintage gods at Wasteland on Upper Haight. “I look to shop vintage when there isn’t anything particular I need. That way you aren’t just focused looking for one thing and you can look through everything. I feel you open yourself up to the best finds this way,” Murphey says. The sneaks are the fitting finish to his affordable chic look. Red chinos by Bedlow, a Hanes white vee, and an army surplus coat all combine for an effortless and urban style.

Beautiful showers built for two
Spotted this one on a recent trip to Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford.

Did you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? And that the human head weighs eight pounds? But back to the epidermis—be kind to it with products so gentle you could eat them. No joke. Earth Tu Face’s Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm use 100% plant-based, food grade ingredients for their sumptuous line of face and body products, packed in modern reusable, compostable, and recyclable containers. I’ve become addicted to the gentle yet affective (not to mention lovely smelling) palmarosa and aloe face wash, but you really can’t go wrong with any of their stuff (I’m eyeing the immortelle and rose face balm). Try the Voyage Travel Kit for entry-level sizes of some of their cult favorites, and get ready to get hooked.

National Tequila Day at Tamarindo
In honor of National Tequila Day, I’m tossing back a couple of margaritas at Tamarindo in Oakland this weekend. Their Margarita de la Casa is perfect, made with el charro silver, lime, simple syrup, and a chile salt rim, but if you want a real kicker opt for the Margarita de Tamarindo (with a housemade fresh tamarind puree) or El Fabuloso with Don Julio reposado, torres, agave, and a chile salt rim. Delish!
