If it's a fashionable way to spend, and happening in the Bay Area, we're talking about it in Shop Talk.
H&M visual merchandiser, Mark Jssn, was analyzing the (super sold out) Marni for H&M window displays when we stopped him on Powell St. Mark moved up to SF five years ago, from San Jose, and says he loves the city for, "the diversity of people and because SF is so laid back." And we love Mark's look for the nicely mixed (loose/tight) proportions and (high/low) brands.
A new year and sunny skies ahead -- January doesn't get much better than this. Inspired by the summery weather, we thought we'd round up a few of our favorite on-trend sunglasses.

It's been a busy, busy year for Miguel Lopez and Gabriel Yanez, co-owners of the high-end designer consignment haven, Sui GENERIS. Earlier this year, the duo expanded their Market St. men's store and opened Sui GENERIS Illa, their new women's destination. Now, just in time for the holidays, Sui GENERIS reveals their new e-boutique, stocked with vintage and new/never-worn men's and women's collectables from brands like Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Helmut Lang, Ann Demeulemeester, Burberry Prorsum and, of course, Chanel. Check out their holiday editorial (above) for a glimpse at the hottest pieces from their online collection.
SF Street Style: A Thrifted Leather Jacket, Killer Light Blue Balenciaga Bag + Summer Cut-out Oxfords at Off The Grid
Here's Linna Trinh, looking fabulous at Off The Grid, Fort Mason. Bay Area summer's are all about layering, and this look hits all the right lengths. Linna's ultra-cool, cream leather jacket has such a great cut, and a nice, relaxed fit. I couldn't believe she found it at a thrift store -- talk about a major score! It just goes to show, you can mix designer pieces (check out Linna's Balenciaga bag below) with thrift store finds, to make a composed, down-to-Earth look.

In a perfect world, we'd all be able to walk into Barney's and drop $1300 on the designer must-have heels of the season without blinking an eye. Unfortunately, most of us live in the real world of scouring H&M and boutique sale racks in an endless quest to find high-end looks that will leave our bank accounts relatively in tact. Luckily we love a good style challenge, so we did the dirty work for you and found five pairs of statement heels that will leave you looking au courant and feeling guilt-free.
