SF Street Style: The Trumpet Kid in the Financial District

You may have seen this snazzy little trumpet player, bustin' out a tune and dancing like nobody's business in front of the Ferry Building or behind Bloomingdale's. Well, this kid is one Mr. Gabriel Angelo, just 12-years-old, but well beyond his years when it comes to talent and style.<--break->

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.

An Upside of the Reccesion: Ralph Lauren's Winter Sale

What could possibly be the upside to the recession? Even newly opened stores, including Ralph Lauren’s latest addition to Fillmore Street, are clearing out merchandise way before Black Friday. While you might be lured in by the 3,500-square-feet shop’s cozy, rustic ambiance (oak floors, leather club chairs and plenty of wicker), you’ll end up staying for the selection of men’s and women’s winter clothing and accessories, which were just marked down to 40 and 50 percent off of retail. We suggest heading straight to the back rack for sleek RLX puffer jackets, ski pants and bright wool knits you’ll need for that Thanksgiving trip to Tahoe.
