This week we're featuring the fall fashion harvest from the Mission-district boutique, BellJar. The selective shop prides itself on housing only "gorgeous little things", which currently includes autumn must-haves like bright outer layers by Pendleton for Opening Ceremony (#1), silky apparel by Charlie Jade (#2, #4), and crystal statement jewelry by local designer, Claire Hummel (#5).
BellJar, has long been known for their vast selection of gorgeous little things. The modern-vintage emporium (nestled right in the heart of the Mission), is always bustling with charming housewares, clothing, gifts and original art from their monthly shows.
One dress + six accessories = a slew of fun looks. For this weekend's SF Cocktail Week, we'll focus on just two: day and night. For more casual events like today's East Bay Showdown, or Sunday's Belvedere Bloody Mary Brunch, go for the funkier day look. For fancier soirees like tomorrow's Barbary Coast Bazaar, or Saturday's The Legend Awards, doll-up for a glitzier evening look.
This week, we thought we'd help scour the SF sale scene and pick out the best markdowns from some of our favorite local boutiques. Check out these fabulous pieces -- for 50+% off -- from Conifer, Azalea, Acrimony, BellJar and Gimme Shoes. Cheers to summer markdowns and happy shopping, SF!
There's no doubt the masses will flock to every park in the city this weekend for some get-it-while-you-can, quality sun basking. The usual suspects are, of course, the uber-hip fest at Dolores Park, BBQs at Crissy Field, or bike riding at Golden Gate. While those parks are always a-happenin', this Sunday, make the trek out to Stern Grove for the SF Symphony's free concert at the 74th Annual Stern Grove Festival.

Well then look no further than BellJar's newly launched e-commerce site, perfect for those moments when you're stuck in front of your computer instead of taking a Four Barrel-fueled stroll around the Mission. Just in time for their two-year anniversary, the darling boutique's site features clothing, jewelry, art, trinkets for home and more in addition to a brand-new blog for their musings.
Mission boutique BellJar may be another year older, but it's just as chock-full of gorgeous, well selected home decor as ever. Friday marks a perfect time to stop in and peep out their current wares, as they'll be celebrating their second year in the biz with a big-time blowout. Sip on a cocktail, nibble on a few mini-cupcakes from yummy Mission Minis, and get ready for your close-up with some glamour shots in the on site vintage photo booth.
You may never have heard of the name Jens Quistgaard, but if you've coveted a bright enamel pot or bulbous peppermill from Danish design company Dansk, then you have this man to thank. As the chief designer behind the brand for over 30 years, Quistgaard was responsible for the iconic style associated with Dansk, and his creations continue to gain in popularity even after his recent death at the age of 89.
