Style + Design
‘Tis the season to be hungry, obviously, and if you, like us, are craving style as much as cranberry sauce, stop by HELLO by Candystore Collective this Saturday to get your fix of Jené DeSpain’s newest line, Black Honey.
Deals abound in San Francisco on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. Where will you be? We've got more than a few suggestions...
Tobi: Get a head start with 30% off regularly priced items with discount code THANKS30 now through Monday.
Villians: Justify buying way too many pairs of shoes at this seriously epic Jeffrey Campbell sale, where buying 2 pairs will get you 15% off, 3 pairs will get you 20% off and 4 pairs will get you 25% off from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Oh, and did we mention for every pair you buy, you'll be entered to win yet another pair?!
Because Black Friday is for procrastinators...
ARTWEAR in the Galleries: Knock out gifts for your artistic friends as four downtown galleries open their doors Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. for this feel-good shopping event that features jewelry, clothing and accessories from 24 artisans with all proceeds benefiting ArtCare.
Conifer: Take 30% off pretty pieces from Steven Alan, Built by Wendy, Lauren Moffatt and more at the Cow Hollow shop's Pre-Holiday Sale.
Holiday pop-up shops are appearing everywhere these days, but at Gilman Village in Berkeley on the corner of 10th & Gilman streets, you can get fed while snagging gifts. From now until December 24th, you can get goodies from chic home boutique Trove, handcrafted haven Ethnic Arts, Show Place Art, and the special Gilman Village Pop-Up Shop, plus cocktails and delicious snacks from T-Rex BBQ like barbecued oysters, ribs, deviled eggs and hand cut fries.
So here's the scenario: your boyfriend invited you to spend Thanksgiving with his family, and you're slightly panicked. Not only is it the first time you're meeting the whole fam (yes, even his crazy uncle), but you've gotten used to having a casual potluck with friends to celebrate the national day of overeating.
Do not pass Go, do not collect $100, and head directly to this season's THREAD event at the Metreon for rad, fashionable gifts for all the people on your holiday shopping list (and maybe pick up a few things for yourself, too). It's a sprawling showcase of the best emerging, style-breaking, genre-bending fashion designers, coupled with the music and art that inspires them. So leave the mall in the dust, grab a cocktail at THREAD's martini lounge and get browsing.
One glance at our calendar made something very clear, there's much too much happening this week to keep it all to ourselves. So strap on your walking heels and get ready for some serious holiday shopping:
