Freelance photographer, Stephen Sun, was busy setting up the shoot, while ex-SF and now Sacramento-based hair and wardrobe stylist, Noelle Lynne, dressed JE Model, Keilina Jones in hot pink hot pants and a towering pair of Michael Antonio wedges.

Betsey Johnson. Live. Glitter mural. Oh, hells yes. That's right, folks -- the spunky little rock-star designer will be in the flesh, celebrating the launch of her new, multi-level SF boutique.

This Saturday, Japanophiles from all over the Bay will pay homage to Tokyo's Harajuku district by wearing "costumes" ranging from goth to Lolita (think Little Bo Peep). It'll be just one of many interesting sights at this year's J-Pop Summit Festival in Japantown.
While you may not want to go all-out for this one, you can still dress for the occasion by incorporating key trends: bows, Peter Pan collars, lace, Mary-Janes, platforms, and black. Luckily, many of these trends are in this fall, too. We spun the Harajuku staples into a modern, completely wearable look, with versatile separates that you'll cherish this fall.

Last week at the Ferry Building, I spotted Sophie and Kelley Hoang -- sisters with two very different styles.

Courtney Durler is a Headlsburg native, who's been enjoying summer break with weekend play in SF. I caught her while shopping at the Ferry Building, and noticed her fun, festival girl look.
