Hearts Delight: Resort '08 Collection Lands at Marc Jacobs

We here at 7x7 heart MJ. And for his resort ’08 collection, Marc Jacobs hearts, well, hearts. Just check out the new windows at the Marc Jacobs boutique on Maiden Lane, where there’s a veritable heart-themed explosion on everything from embroidered organza dresses to heart-bedecked leather handbags, just in time for that next beloved holiday. We’re head over heels for the red stacked-heel pumps, which have a heart-shaped peep toe opening and, like a tiny secret meant just for the shoes’ owner, a heart-shaped heel bottom. (Don’t forget to come back again in February for our Valentine’s Day online-exclusive gift guide!)

This Just In: High Heel Wearers More Likely to Get Mugged

We’ve come across many a disturbing fashion trend in our day, but this one certainly outranks many of them: high heels and shopping bags may make you more attractive to muggers. Last week, the Los Angeles Police Department reportedly announced that the flagging economy has coincided with an increase in robberies, and women wearing heels have been frequent targets for purse snatchers and petty thieves. And while sprinting in stilettos seems to work just fine on the silver screen, we wouldn’t recommend that kind of action for San Francisco’s hilly streets.

Fly Guy: New Men's Wear Store Opens in Embarcadero Center

If you’re not a Fi-Di regular, chances are you haven’t noticed the popular online retailer OnTheFly.com recently opened up a bricks-and-mortar shop in the Embarcadero Center. Formerly based in a little-known warehouse in SoMa, the five-year-old company founded by haberdasher and Russian Hill resident Ami Arad, specializes in all things a stylish gentleman could need from croc-embossed cigar cases and shaving kits to silk ties and tailored trousers.

Wrap Star: Ali Golden Hoodie Wrap Vests

On a gray, chilly Monday after two holiday-heavy weeks, it can be easy to feel ho-hum about what is, for many of us, the official first day back. Stylish salve for our holiday hangovers comes in the form of local designer Ali Golden’s brightly-hued, warm, snuggly reversible vests. The dramatic hoods capping each of Golden’s one-of-a-kind, handmade wool wrap tops can be worn up (so you stay undercover and still turn heads) or down and draped softly backwards over the shoulders. But the best thing about the vests, says Golden, is their versatility. “They can be worn and layered in many ways. Since they are reversible, and at least one side is always solid, they can be worn with many colors and patterns. I have personally dressed these vests up and down.

It may be a new year, but one thing hasn’t changed: sales continue to pop up everywhere we look. Here are seven places to shop and save during the first weekend in 2009:

Hot Stuff: Lejaby Crystal Chantilly Lace Collection

An evening of high drama – tonight or any night – doesn’t have to involve an elaborate, Champagne-addled adventure through the wilds of the city (though that never hurts). For instant intrigue, try donning the latest sweet almost-nothings to arrive at lingerie boutique Dollhouse Bettie.

Clean Out Your Closet and Give Back, Part II

With the New Year, we all get a fresh start. Why not give your closet one, too? The benefits of an end-of-year closet clean-out extend far beyond better-organized shelves and shoe racks by helping worthy local charitable organizations fund their programs and provide clothing to families and individuals in need. So grab a giveaway bag and get started. When you’re done, any one of these local non-profits will be happy to give your pre-loved goods a second life.

Clean out Your Closet and Give Back

Before you ring in the New Year later this week, consider these style-conscious charitable organizations for year-end, tax-deductible donations.
