The lady and legend (and 7x7 July/August 2013 cover model) Juanita MORE! may be famed for a few things: 1) her bedazzling fashion statements; 2) her bewitching signature scent of tuberose and musk; and 3) her weekly Booty Call parties in the Castro. That party gets jacked up to 11 for the queen's legendary Pride Party, during San Francisco's biggest weekend.
UPDATED WED 6/26/13:
What an historic day today! SF Pride this year is sure to be extra special—we hope you can join us at our event on Thu 6/27, to celebrate the latest steps towards equality—let's all cheer from the Lookout's famous balcony overlooking Market St. in the Castro. Happy Pride and congratulations to all!
Join 7x7 and help us launch this year's Pride weekend at one of San Francisco's most iconic venues in the heart of the Castro—the Lookout!
This Week in Fashion: Pride Party at SuiGeneris, Millinery Trunk Show at Fiat Lux, Pret-A-Porter Fashion Show + Killer Sales
1. Pride in Style at SuiGeneris (2265 Market St.), Saturday June 25, 12pm-5pm.
Celebrate Pride at SuiGeneris's shopping, mingling and champagne Pride soiree. The consignment boutique is conveniently located in the Castro, and DJ Stanley Frank (Viennatta Discotheque) and Jason Kendig will be spinning all night. P.S. Don't forget to enter the raffle for two Rickshaw Bagworks Juanita More market messenger bags -- score.
2. Sundays at Church with Jasmin Zorlu + Elwyn Crawford at Fiat Lux (218 Church St.), Sunday June 26, 3pm-7pm.
Every last Sunday of the month, Fiat Lux celebrates a Bay Area designer with a mega trunk show, and 10% off. This month it's millinery madness with local hat heroines, Jasmin Zorlu and Elwyn Crawford. Stop by the boutique, grab a cup of chilled sangria, say hello to the designers, and treat yourself to a new headpiece for SF Pride.
As you're well aware by now, the most vibrant, glitter-dusted weekend of the year is quickly approaching. But this isn't just any old Pride celebration, it's 40 and fabulous!
That's why we decided to put together an equally fab 70s-inspired ensemble to carry you through a long day of boozing, bead-catching, and singing along to the Backstreet Boys.
From a bold striped romper to shimmering body balm (which is essentially a grown-up version of glitter lotion), you'll be ready to celebrate equal rights in true San Francisco fashion.
See you there!
