SF Street Style: Local Jewelry Designers Spotted in Simple Pieces + Great Shoes at New Berkeley Boutique, Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall

Jewelry designers, Vivian Wang and Ingrid Chen, of Viv&Ingrid, were rocking some killer flats at a launch party last week for their new Berkeley gift shop, Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall. The darling boutique is full of dreamy, whimsical decor and full of pretty, witty little things -- just as every great gift shop should be.

Now, designer are typically known for dressing very casually and Viv&Ingrid were no exception. They did however, step up their shoe game -- love! I really like the detailing on both pairs of flats -- the rhinestone cut-outs on the Vivian's yellow flats, and the asymmetrical line and d'Orsay cut on Ingrid's black pointies. 

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.
