SF Street Style: Balenciaga, H&M and Custom Jewelry at Union Square

H&M visual merchandiser, Mark Jssn, was analyzing the (super sold out) Marni for H&M window displays when we stopped him on Powell St.  Mark moved up to SF five years ago, from San Jose, and says he loves the city for, "the diversity of people and because SF is so laid back."

It's a Hard Knock Life for an Ocean Beach-Loving Dog

My favorite time to walk my dog on Ocean Beach is during a negative low tide, when the ocean pulls back into itself and reveals a wide-open expanse of wet sand. You can walk south towards Fort Funston and basically go forever. It’s even better if it’s just after a rain, because then the beach is empty. Just me and the dog. I love it.
