Look of the Week: Runway Ready

As stylish as it may be, impractical airport attire (think heavy coat, scarf, dress, huge bag, and high heels) will surely maximize space in your suitcase, but will no doubt leave you longing for the comfort of the dreadful Juicy tracksuit. With a little creativity, however, you can still look runway chic in an outfit that feels like PJs. We promise.

Gap's Patrick Robinson Dishes on New Premium Denim Under $70

When we caught up with Head of Design for Gap Patrick Robinson during his whirlwind visit to San Francisco last week, the Giorgio Armani and Paco Rabanne alum tapped to revive his current company’s style cred from the only-for-prepsters pigeon hole it had arguably been living in for well over a decade was juggling journalists on the bustling floor of the Gap at Market and Powell in between efforts to shop Gap’s latest offerings for fall.

“I only wear Gap, since the day I started,” says Robinson, who tells us he shops at Gap stores when he travels to different cities.

Peek Inside: Vim and Vigor Salon

Step inside newly re-launched King Street salon Vim and Vigor, and the first thing you’re likely to notice about the club-like interiors are walls strewn with what, from afar at least, appear to be undulating tendrils of hair. But take a few steps closer, and you’ll find the swirling lines are actually mane-like fibers embedded in the walls. And thank the styling gods for that. The real deal could easily have had the unintended effect of creeping us out long before we were able to learn about the salon’s all-star team of stylists, trendy Brazilian Blowout service and signature cutting technique.

Look of the Week: Summer Wedding

As much as we love a good party, summer weddings seriously stress us out. Not only do you have to make a registry gift appear personal, but you also have to look fabulous without outshining the bride. Add in all the "rules" (ie. no black, no white, don't look like a bridesmaid, etc.) and you've gotten yourself into a true fashion predicament. But never fear, an upcoming wedding in our iCal has us scouring the web for an ensemble that will make us stand out from the pack (but not overly so), and we think we've come up with just the thing:
