SF Street Style: Two Cold Weather Looks on Market St.

Photos by Kimberly Bartel.

We spotted partners Liz King (left) and Judith Powell (right), toughing the weather in cute coats and distressed boots, while out for a shop on Market St. Liz works retail development and oversees some of the construction of Apple stores, and Judith is the executive director of The First Tee of SF, a youth development program. When they're not hard at work, the two are busy shopping and eating local, in SF and beyond.

What Liz is wearing:  Lauren Moffatt coat purchased from Cake Plate; Citizens for Humanity jeans from Anthropologie; Donna Piu boots purchased from Verve in NYC; Lupo bag from Clutch in Healdsburg; ring purchased from Condessa Hotel in Mexico City.

What Judith is wearing:  Lauren Moffatt coat purchased from Anthropologie; Rag & Bone jeans from the Barneys Outlet in Napa; Italien boots from Verve in NYC; Dean leather bag purchased from Bulo in Hayes Valley; Dinosaur Design ring purchased from a boutique in NYC Nolita. 

7 Style Questions for Liz & Judith:

1. Where are your favorite local shops?

L:  Lava 9, Rabat, Wonderland, Azalea, Cake Plate.

J:  Lava 9 in Hayes Valley for rings; Zipper in Sonoma for necklaces; Cake Plate in Napa (the owner, Paige, is awesome!); Azalea, and Bulo in Hayes Valley for shoes and bags.

2. Style icons?

L:  Really, I wish I had someone, but I guess certain actresses: Angelina Jolie, Audrey Hepburn and my friend Lori who lives in Chicago. 

J:  Cliche, but either Hepburn (Katherine and Audrey), Tom Ford anything...Julianne Moore in A Single Man was flawless, I love clean lines and black and white with just a hint of color. Truman Capote's black & white ball and the ascot races scene from My Fair Lady are perfection.

3. How has your personal style changed over the years?

L:  I wear more heels now. 

J:  I stopped trying ot make houndstooth happen and quit purchasing my accessories from Claire's.

4. What's your most prized posession?

L:  A Barbara Silverstein ring from Lava 9 that is a wire mesh around a pearl.

J:  My dog Leopold.

5. Where do you get pampered? 

L:  Green Twig, St. Regis, Indian Springs, but I really pamper with food and drinks!

J:  Dana at Green Twig does my hair, nails in Noe Valley, spa/pool at St. Regis, and my best massage was at SFO Terminal 2 -- 15 minutes of total bliss.

6. What's one style secret you're willing to share?

L:  Most people know this, but don't wash your hair every day.

J:  Edit -- less is more. Champagne makes every party, outfit and conversation better!

7. Other than shopping, where are you eating and playing in SF?

L:  Eating, especially boozy lunches, and cooking are my favorite hobbies. Zuni, Boulette's Larder, Mission Cheese, Delfina Pizzeria to go, Tacolicious, Amber India. I love to cook Mexican so I buy more ingredients at La Palma, and Casa Lucas (right near Wonderland!) and Nijiya Market for shishito peppers and fish to make sushi. 

J:  Eat and drink wine and wistfully look at furniture I cannot afford. My favorite restaurants include Locanda, Commonwealth, Zuni, Mission Chinese. Also, the bar at Joe's of Westlake saves you a trip to Palm Springs, 7 Mile House is the best place to watch a sports event, and Mustards in Napa is still really, really great.
