While yoga pants may seem like the answer (with turducken or tofurkey on your mind), we suggest going with something slightly more elegant this Thanksgiving. Whether you're feasting with family or friends, dress up for dinner with one of our picks from the local e-boutique, Fancy French Cologne.
Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. And that's just the beginning.
As you prepare for holiday parties -- whether you're playing or gifting the host(ess) with the most(ess) -- stop by the Mission's Pot + Pantry for fun kitchenware with local flavor. Take a peek at our top picks.
Last night, local designer and Project Runway season 8 star, Christopher Collins, revealed his Fall 2012 collection to an exclusive crowd at his Nob Hill boutique (1112 Sutter St.). We put together our favorite looks and spoke with the gorgeous young designer about his new line, SF favorites, and his newfound love for Rihanna.
This week we're featuring the fall fashion harvest from the Mission-district boutique, BellJar. The selective shop prides itself on housing only "gorgeous little things", which currently includes autumn must-haves like bright outer layers by Pendleton for Opening Ceremony (#1), silky apparel by Charlie Jade (#2, #4), and crystal statement jewelry by local designer, Claire Hummel (#5).
D-Structure is...one part apparel shop, one part art gallery, and one part intimate venue for cool local events -- and now add ecommerce destination to that heckuva cocktail recipe.
The Lower Haight multi-purpose space (that also goes by DSF) launched a new e-store last week with their staple selection of men's t-shirts, plus a big new focus on womenswear. Here are our women's picks for the Indian summer (fingers crossed) ahead.
The cult-loved Japanese clothing chain, Uniqlo, just made their much anticipated West Coast debut -- a bit early and via pop-up.
Yesterday, they opened doors to the Uniqlo Pop Up Experience (117 Post, at Kearny), a tech-inspired teaser shop, generating hype for the opening of their Powell St. flagship store later this fall.
As you prepare for Outside Lands, remember it's part mega summer concert, part serious local food fest, and part hipster fashion show.
To make sure you're looking your best, we pulled together a few, fun essentials for this weekend, including: comfy-all-day wedge sandals (#4), a crossbody bag (#3) to keep those hands free for rocking out in the pit (or Instagramming photos), a killer poncho (#6) for the inevitable evening chill, and a kitschy flamingo throw (#7) to sit back and relax on all day long.
We don't know about you, but we can't wait. See you at Outside Lands!
Belts are an essential piece in the modern female wardrobe. They easily elevate ordinary looks by creating shape, supplying texture, and adding color.
Still, to many, $100+ is a bit much to spend on a belt. I beg to differ. I've always believed it's smart to invest in quality accessories that you'll use over and over, for years to come. After all, ladies, how many times have you said to yourself, "I'd have to wear a belt with it."? (Not necessarily a bad thing!)
Get the most out of that hip-hugger with a fabulous statement belt -- here are the top seven currently on our radar.
