San Francisco Native Gets Nod from Anna Wintour at NYFW

We’re betting it was a very fine weekend for San Francisco native Patrik Ervell, who presented his fall menswear collection during New York Fashion Week on Saturday.

Not only did Vogue’s Anna Wintour arrive early to see his show, but she also gave the New York-based designer’s latest her verbal stamp of approval. Before Wintour made her exit, she found Ervell’s representatives and, “asked them to pass along the following message: ‘Tell Patrik I loved the collection,’” The Cut reports.

What’s the Deal: Good Vibrations, Christopher Collins, Sisley and more…

Sometimes, you've just got to deal...

Good Vibrations: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, all locations are offering wine and chocolate when you shop from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, as well as a $10 gift card when you spend $100.

Christopher Collins: Throughout February, markdowns at this Bay Area designer’s boutique range from up to 30 percent off fall coats to up to 50 percent off pants and tops.

Get a Front Row Seat at the Academy's NYFW Show

As Ms. Klum has drilled into our well-coiffed heads season after season, 'In fashion, one day you're in and the next you're out.' Well, six recent Academy of Art grads have made the cut without having to turn garbage into couture (at least to our knowledge) and will be showing alongside the likes of Philip Lim, Diane Von Furstenberg and Project Runway's own Michael Kors at New York Fashion Week this Saturday.

Look of the Week: Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to get all dolled up whether you're headed out for a night on the town or staying home for a more intimate evening.

When searching for an ensemble that's sure to get hearts racing, we steered clear of the clichéd reds and pinks associated with the sugar-coated holiday and instead opted for a romantic dress in the perfect shade of winter white. And to play up the sexy silhouette, we topped off the look with edgy accessories and the most adorable ring we've ever seen.

Now knock 'em dead.

Look of the Week: Super Bowl Sunday

Once a year we put aside our differences with pro football for a day of beer-drinking, commerical-watching, and wing-eating better known as Super Bowl Sunday.

Don't get us wrong, it's not so much the game that we don't enjoy, it's the oversized jerseys that the die-hard fans tend to wear and the loud drunkenness in overstuffed sports bars that turn us off. That's why we decided to put together a cute and comfortable (helloooo nachos!) outfit that will look fab no matter which team you're cheering on.

It's the New Orleans Saints v. Indianapolis Colts by the way.
