Look of the Week: Chic Skulls for Dia de los Muertos

San Francisco's Dia de los Muertos and Festival of Alters celebrations take place tomorrow evening, in the Mission. We're of course, looking forward to the fashion, including -- among other dark accessories -- plenty of skulls. 

We took inspiration from the late, great fashion designer, Alexander McQueen (#6) (known for his iconic skull-prints), and SF turned LA-based artist, Sylvia Ji, for this week's collection of chic skulls.

Look of the Week: Pee-wee Herman Halloween Costume for Him and Her

Last year, a girlfriend of mine and her now husband were Janelle Monae and Pee-wee Herman for Halloween. An unlikely pair, indeed, but both costumes were spot onand brilliant. That got me thinking... Pee-Wee is one of those perfect costumes:  easy, fun, iconic while not overly costumey, and works for men or women. Heck, it even gives you an excuse to have a big adventure and ride around on a bicycle (Halloween Critical Mass, anyone?).

Look of the Week: Funky-Fresh Booties for Fall

It's that time of year again when transplants from the Northwest and New England get nostalgic for the autumns they once knew, while the Indian summer still lingers in the distance (le sigh). So what's the perfect shoe for this in-between season? Ankle boots. And to go with the funky weather patterns of late, we decided to pull together seven funky styles.

Step into fall with these dynamic kicks.

Look of the Week: Men's Suede Sneakers for Fall

Recently, we noticed a new surge in suede shoes -- and we're serious about our suede.  In particular, we're digging the rise of the suede sneaker (or at least that's what we're calling it).

From all-suede high-tops (#3) to mixed-fabric low-tops (#5, #7), the textures and colors are perfect for fall -- plus, the soft leather adds sophistication to classics like Vans (#1) and Converse (#2). Here are our top picks.

This year, the nearly 30-year-old annual fashion, music, and fundraising institution will feature the poppy YouTube-discovery, Karmin, and oh-la-la headliner, Robin Thicke, in addition to fall runway looks by Bar III (#1, #4), Calvin Klein and more.

Look of the Week: Something Blue

This fall, one of our favorite statement colors is the simple, flattering, and now ultra modern blue.

When it comes to wearing the classic shades of cobalt just remember, the bolder the better.
