If you’re one to appreciate shopping with a side of charcuterie (or fashion with a food cart tie-in), keep reading. Salty sustenance and style will merge on Thursday night, when The Butcher’s Daughter (a.k.a. Julie Schaller of New York’s Schaller & Weber lineage) debuts her new German meat sampling service for parties and events at Mission boutique Mira Mira. A trunk show featuring L.A.-based designer Suzy Lequeux’s rock chic Rossmore jewelry line and the shop’s first-ever sale only make the evening even, uh, meatier.
If you start to notice an influx of sharp-dressed men during your caffeine reconnaissance missions to Four Barrel, it will likely be the result (or fault, depending on your purview) of new neighbor The Common, which is leaving its SoMa outpost in favor of a new Mission location. When the doors to the new space open tomorrow, expect menswear with a small-batch, handcrafted approach – and free cocktails, if only during the opening event.
If you heart the Mission, then this weekend’s Mission United shindig at Public Works is one to add to your calendar. Not only does it offer fashion, music and a chance to dance around wearing a freaky mask (don’t fight it), but proceeds from the event benefit worthy neighborhood charitable programs at San Francisco General Hospital and its Dr. Rick Psychiatric Department Volunteer & Rehab Services, Root Division and SFSmiles.
Have you ever wanted to get your hands on a hot stylist’s rack (people, not like that). You’ll get your chance this Friday, when Bianca Starr unveils its first “stylist boutique,” a new in-store concept that’s sure to have local vintage fashion fans drooling.
“We have the hottest, most talented women in the city who have graced us with their fashion influence and asked them to pick out 20 to 30 of their favorite pieces that they can part with to be out on consignment,” store owner Bianca Kaplan blogged recently.
