What’s the Deal: Harputs Market, Ladita Closing Sale, Loomstate T-Shirt Recycling

Because paying full retail price is oh-so-passé...

Ladita: We’re sad to report that this Bernal Heights eco-boutique is closing its doors in less than two weeks. Until then, the shop is having a close-out sale that promises eco-friendly apparel, accessories and gifts for women and babies for up to 70 percent off.

Elizabeth Charles: A summer sale is on at this Pacific Heights destination for Australian designers, as well as in the boutique’s online store. Women’s apparel from designers such as Ginger and Smart and Megan Park are going for hundreds off regular prices.

Fashion Mashup: Mission Meets Marina

With our Neighborhoods issue approaching faster than we'd like to admit, it seems like all talk around the office has been centered around SF districts this week. Though the borders between 'hoods can be fuzzy, they certainly each have a distinct style about them. We decided to have a little fun and mash up two seemingly opposite neighborhoods into one look that we could see just as easily on a girl shopping the stroller-lined Chestnut Street as one having a beer at Zeitgeist.

Which two neighborhoods should we combine next?

Taxi CDC Sample Sale, Cheap Drinks, DJ at Shotwell Tonight

Stop by Shotwell tonight from 6-9 p.m. for their 'First Thursday' sample sale event which will feature LA-based Taxi CDC's refurbished vintage wears, as well as the usual suspects: (stiff) $3 cocktails, a DJ, and superb people watching.

This is a party you don't want to miss, trust us.

Newsom's Hair Gets Its Own Twitter Account

We suppose it was inevitable, especially after being featured in this month's Elle. Newsom's perfectly-coiffed hair (which everyone now knows can be credited to L'Oreal Total Control Clean Gel) now has a Twitter account.

Some of our favorite tweets include:

@newsomshair Wishing I was wearing a hat to hide my shame over the CA supreme courts prop 8 ruling. http://tr.im/laud

@newsomshair surrounded by fog??? And wishing he'd take me to the Britney Spears concert.

Show Your Pride by Tying the Knot

In spite of the recent Prop 8 decision, there's no better time than the present to tie the (white) knot.

Much more than a fashion statement, White Knots have been spotted all over the red carpet on the likes of Zooey Deschanel, John Malkovich, Anne Hathaway, John Waters, Padma Lakshmi, thanks to White Knot for Equality, an organization dedicated to increasing the visibility of marriage equality supporters.

Inner Richmond: Covet Boutique Opens

You may have spotted the handmade adornments from San Francisco designer Adrienne Wiley’s vintage-inspired Frolick line and local designer Liza Anongchanya’s clean, classic Ofina Jewelry at Bay Area shopping events or on celebrities such as Mariah Carey (Frolick) and Mischa Barton (Ofina). Now you can peruse complete collections from both under one roof at their new Inner Richmond boutique Covet, whose lofted second level does double duty as a workspace for the designers and friends.

Link Love: Swine Flu at Vogue, Tingling Thigh Syndrome in SF and Retro Swimwear

All the good reads from our feeds....

We hear from the HuffPo that swine flu has landed at the Vogue offices. We bet Sally Singer is glad she’s in San Francisco this week.
