Look of the Week: First Thursday

Ah First Thursday, the one day of the month where everyone can get dressed up in their 'hippest' attire while taking in culture and booze gratis. A glorious evening where Marina girls and struggling art students alike mingle amongst local artists and benefactors, looking for an intriguing stranger to bump into (which isn't hard in the crowded galleries). Well dear readers, that day is today so we've compiled an artfully sophisticated noir-heavy ensemble that proves black is anything but boring. Perhaps we can discuss the merits of cubism over a glass of two-buck Chuck later...

The Great Heist Strikes Shotwell

After a burglary forced Shotwell to close up shop for repairs at the end of July, they're officially back with a vengeance today from 6-9 p.m. Peruse through their oh-so-hip merchandise from the likes of Elizabeth and James, Surface to Air, B. Son and Alex and Chloe while sipping cheap but potent cocktails, all set to the soundtrack of DJ Superdunny of Official Tourist. Be sure to assemble your most Facebook-worthy ensemble, as the lovely Parker Day will be snapping photos of the scene, and what a scene it's sure to be.

Phi-nally: Phi Arrives in San Francisco

In today’s zero-to-fame-in-a-heartbeat media landscape, it is a rare time indeed in any fashion label’s life when it is simultaneously well-known enough to be drooled over by the elite fashion press and coveted by celebrity-slash-socialites bound for red carpet events, but yet still not quite an easily-recognized name among mainstream consumers (outside of those pouring over fashion glossies and blogs, of course).
