Designers like Burberry and Phillip Lim showed off copious amounts of shearling for Fall and like a self-proclaimed fashion fiend, I was to ready to commit myself — and my wallet — to a magnificent shearling collared jacket by Helmut Lang, seen above. However, right before the salesperson swiped my card, the BFF stepped in and asked me, "Do you really want to get that jacket? It never gets that cold here". Hmm . . . she brought up a good point. So now I pose the question, do SF and shearling really go together?
We couldn't agree more with Leslie Yang's Fall shopping motto, "stay warm and buy local". Yang, owner of the eco-friendly SF-based jewelry line Feisty Elle, creates an artsy array of super lightweight jewels comprised of bamboo and virgin merino wool. Such a creative genius requires an awesome Fall wardrobe, so we asked Yang for the scoop on her five Fall must-haves. Ready to shop?
While some SF hipsters might cringe at the idea of ditching their denim skinnies, high-waisted, wide-leg pants are back this season thanks to designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and Zac Posen. We, (and Rachel Zoe), personally love the somewhat tongue-twisting '70s inspired trend, but are you smitten?
Local jewelry line 1228, designed by Nico Lopez, has garnered massive accolades - Bat for Lashes' Natasha Khan and Adam Lambert have all been spotted wearing pieces - for its femme-meets-punky aesthetic since its inception in 2007. And while we wish we could own everything from the latest collection, we're willing to settle with a cult fave, Lopez's 24 karat gold tooth necklace. Daring and decadent? Yes, please.
