Street Style Report: A Modern Patriotic Look at Harputs, Union Square
Just in time for Memorial Day, we caught a fresh mix of red and blue on Harputs shopgirl, Robin Ward. Carefree hair, a great lipstick and leather booties complete this effortless SF-summer look.
What she wore: Asymmetrical dress, purchased from Urban Outfitters; Harputs jacket; Fathom & Form double ring, purchased from Indie Mart; Bite lipstick in "Pastille Lilac", purchased from Sephora; Dieppa Restreppo leather booties.
Robin's style philosophy: "No disposable goods."
Seven Questions for Robin:
1. What are you most excited for this summer?
I'm excited for the general excitement around summer, when everyone's a bit better at the fun things.
2. What's one thing at Harputs that everyone should own?
Every SF girl or boy could benefit from one of our new jackets.
3. What's in your bag?
I was a minimalist until we [Harputs] made an amazing oversized bag at the shop which I now use to carry everything, including but not limited to: a few shades of lipstick, a point and shoot camera, and three changes of clothing because you never know who we're going to meet at the shop and what the day will bring.
4. What's your summer drink of choice?
My favorite bourbon or scotch on ice.
5. What's sexy?
Right now, most of Europe.
6. What would you never be caught dead in?
Anything that's artificially distressed or implanted.
7. What's your SF Top 5?
-Early morning runs up secret stairs in neighborhoods around the city.
