Summer Color Trend: Fuchsia

Sunny skies call for shedding your basic black. We’re seeing this “it” color all over the city—from patent leather peep toes to bow bedecked jackets.

Summer Trend Alert: Flat Sandals

Jogging around the Marina this weekend in 85-degree heat instantly turned me into a marketer’s dream. I felt uncomfortably warm in my sneakers after an afternoon run, so I popped over to Chestnut Street for a quick shopping detour where more than a few boutiques had the latest footwear trends—gladiator and ankle-strap sandals—displayed prominently in their windows. There were so many choices, from exotic skins to embellished and metallic leather; I wasn’t sure whether I was feeling light headed from the exercise or the dizzying shoe selection. So what if I’d be back home amid the misty Sunset fog in an hour? The sight of all those gorgeous feet-baring flats sent me on a post-workout mission to find some hot options for the next SF heat wave.

Best in Beauty: Travel-Friendly Make-up Palettes

I finally found time to sneak in a few vacation days to see family this week in Ohio (and yes, dear GlamWatch readers, I am still faithfully blogging!). One of the challenges I faced packing for a red-eye flight at the 11th hour? Quickly downsizing my arsenal of beauty products to fit into a compact carry-on. Thankfully, my obsession with finding the ideal make-up palette to match just about any occasion--and purse size--left me with plenty of well-researched options. Here are my three on-the-go favorites:
