It’s impossible to explain Harputs in fewer than 140 characters. The new Union Square store doesn’t have much of a website and the plan is to eliminate its mail-order business. Under Harputs name, there’s no blog. No tweets. Founder Gus Harput might happen to be the city’s new leader in cutting-edge fashion but in essence, he’s extremely old fashioned.
Since summer has decided to visit San Francisco for the week, there's no better time to get out and enjoy the sunshine and few better ways to do that than with a little shopping. We put on our walking heels today and hit the sidewalk to track down the best airy sundresses the city has to offer. And since most of us are stuck in front of a computer all day, we made sure they also have websites.

We've been lusting after this vibrant floral number since first laying eyes on it and though it's still a bit pricey on sale, we think it makes an eye-catching investment piece.
Though every season we vow to invest in quality over quantity, a tightened shopping budget and the desire for instant gratification always lead us back through the doors of H&M.
Luckily we now have another alternative: convertible clothing and accessories. While this idea isn’t new by any means, it’s become a full-on trend as of late and we only see it getting bigger as these tough economic times continue.
Less can be more--we, for one, are looking forward to finally purchasing better quality garments, getting creative with styling and freeing up some much needed closet space. Now we turn it over to you to give some of our favorite innovative pieces a try and bid adieu to fast fashion.
With Mother's Day only three days away, chances are you've gotten the perfect card and gift taken care of. You even scored brunch reservations at Foreign Cinema to secure your 'favorite daughter' status. The only question left is the inevitable "What am I going to wear?", and if your mom is anything like ours, this sweet ensemble will leave her positively glowing (though it might also have a bit to do with the mimosas).
To kick off our new weekly look feature, we decided to scour local boutiques (with online shops of course!) and piece together the perfect outfit for a weekend in the park. It’s easy, playful and ideal for soaking in the sun. Without further ado, this week’s picks:
1. Harputs Own T-Shirt Dress in Gold Silk, $200: This effortlessly cool frock screams spring wardrobe staple with its clean silhouette and high hemline.
2. Tatty Devine Dinosaur Necklace from Eden & Eden, $195: Pair this quirky necklace with a simple getup for some tongue-in-cheek chic.
