Since launching over seven years ago in a Victorian house on Downey Street in the Haight, Glam Media has grown into a top-ten online media company with a global audience, mainly women, focused on its aggregated, curated lifestyle content.

SF Street Style: High Contrast + Rocker Chic in Hayes Valley

I caught up with Nadiya Suwardi, an associate at Prada, while shopping in Hayes Valley. Nadiya exudes this very cool, rock 'n' roll confidence, but has a killer sweetheart smile to balance the toughness. The contrasts -- two-toned hair, delicate yet badass tattoos, the floral-on-leopard prints, and how the flirty hemline of her dress falls so nicely into a chunky heel -- are what make this look really great.

This Week in Fashion: Simply Chic Launches Online Designer Consignment Shop

Earlier this week, the Chanel-obsessed Marina consignment shop, Simply Chic, launched an online shop offering gently used designer bags and accessories. The select luxury goods are all in good-to-mint condition, and each piece is curated by the owner, May Warren. We took a browse through the constantly growing vintage-to-contemporary collection, and found everything from Lanvin pumps and Hermes watches, to Marni handbags. Take a peek our top picks (above).

Through a storm of Memorial Day shoppers, a swift flash or orange caught my eye. There was Marvin Brooks, a Prada Women's RTW specialist at Neiman Marcus, decked out in Prada, (naturally), and looking oh-so fab. 

What he's wearing:  Tie-dyed dress shirt, striped square-end tie, dark denim jeans, and chunky blue-green-brown oxford-espadrilles, all from Prada. Vivienne Westwood ring purchased in the London VW store, Prada glasses from Glitter Optics, navy belt from Zara

7 Must Shop Consignment + Non-Profit Shops for Designer Clothing, Handbags, Shoes and More

With countless weddings, lawn parties and BBQs to attend, who can afford to wear a new designer frock to each event? My secret is consignment. Buy mint-condition pieces for a discounted price, sell your next-to-new goods, and sometimes even help a great charity. Check out these 7 must-shops:

 

1. Helpers House of Couture:  International style icon and philanthropist, Joy Bianchi, turned her love of fashion and good deeds into this 9-room, 100% charity-driven boutique. It features everything from couture to brand-new, an entire men's room, a jewelry room, and one room where everything is under $100. Not to mention, it was named one of the 10 best fashion stores in Vogue's Best Dressed special edition last year. Prices range from $10-$10,000.

Style Profile: Edric Chew on How to Rock Designer Menswear

The key to rocking the runway look on the street has always been to mix and match designer pieces with everyday staples. Edric Chew, a 29-year-old registered nurse, does just that by mixing Louis Vuitton with Urban Outfitters, for a night on the town in Union Square.

Chew likes to have fun with fashion, and is known for his flashy signature style. His outfit above shows how to polish off a low-key look by investing in strong designer accessories. In fact, his ultra-luxe shoes were the first thing to catch our eye. With designer wardrobes, it's all about building. For both guys and girls, a solid pair of designer shoes definitely build a foundation, and will last a lifetime.

Aprizi Gives Big Love to the Little Guys

Fashion is fast, and we, savvy shoppers, are always on the prowl for the next big thing. Sure, H&M is a staple and we love mega fashion houses like Prada, but isn't it great when you find a unique item from an amazing, emerging designer? 

Aprizi, a NYC-based startup, is taking a new approach to online shopping by filtering out the big brands and only featuring high-quality independent designs. Think Design*Sponge meets ShopStyle
