Green Gala: A Runway Show Amongst the Redwoods at UC Berkeley

Our Favorite SF Shops for Summer Frocks

 

Since summer has decided to visit San Francisco for the week, there's no better time to get out and enjoy the sunshine and few better ways to do that than with a little shopping. We put on our walking heels today and hit the sidewalk to track down the best airy sundresses the city has to offer. And since most of us are stuck in front of a computer all day, we made sure they also have websites.

 

 

 

1. See by Chloé Daisy Rosette Dress at Azalea, $402.50:

We've been lusting after this vibrant floral number since first laying eyes on it and though it's still a bit pricey on sale, we think it makes an eye-catching investment piece.

Harajuku Fashion on Display

Fuzzy bunny ears, mismatched stockings in day-glo hues and plastic hair barrettes are not likely to be among the go-to accessories of the average American girl over the age of five, but these sorts of childhood adornments are central to many an outfit concocted by those frequenting Tokyo’s Harajuku fashion district, the subject of a photography exhibit now on view at the downtown office of the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco.

Link Love: Shoe Wedgies, Jimmy Choo H&M Preview and Tickets to the Gun Show

Good reads from our feeds...

Hey, did you get your tickets? The Tobi blog works on selling tickets to the summer gun show in a recent post about the current dudes-in-tank-tops trend. The disturbing byproduct of this trend? Unsolicited armpit hair sightings outside of trips to the beach or your weird uncle's house. Ew.

Look of the Week: CFDA Edition

Seeing as this past Monday was the Oscars of the fashion industry, we decided to salute the CFDA (that's the Council of Fashion Designers of America for those who always or never wondered) Awards by featuring three of this year's winners: Calvin Klein, SF native Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler. And what better way to do so than by showing the designers' take on the ultimate wardrobe essential, the Little Black Dress, at three different price points? While we're always on the search for the elusive perfect black dress to add to our collection, we might not have a few grand to throw down on a dress at the moment (or ever), but hey, a girl can dream can't she?
