Photos by Lily Ko

Last week, we spotted local fashion merchandiser Ariana Roviello, in a gorgeous pair of gold-strapped boots.

"You caught me on all Zara look today," said Ariana, who works for Charlotte Russe

What She Wore: T-shirt, wool coat, black leather bag, black leather and gold strap boots, all purchased from Zara; Knit cap from H&M; Pendleton fur collar cardigan, purchased from Wasteland; J Brand black skinny pants, purchased from Nordstrom.

Ariana's Style Tip: "I'm always a fan of adding a touch of leather to any outfit."

In Her Bag: "All the necessities -- phone, wallet, keys (sometimes) and a good lipstick. On occasion you might find a spoon or fork from home as I am always eating on the run." 

Seven Questions for Ariana:

1. What's on your holiday wish list? 

I'd absolutely love a record player so I can listen to all my favorite Christmas albums. 

2. What's sexy?

Wearing all black.

3. What's one thing most people don't know about you?

I am working on a lot of musical endeavors. 

4. How many pairs of shoes do you have?

Not an absurd amount. I'd say 15 or so.

5. What's your favorite item at home?

My books, because in the era of Kindles and tablets, it can get increasingly harder to keep a good quantity of books laying around.

6. What would be your last meal on Earth?

This is a hard choice between steak frites and a burrito. I'd probably just take both.

7. What's your SF Top 5?

Magnolia Brewery, Churchill, Alamo Square, Sightglass Coffee and Little Chihuahua.
