Look of the Week: Bay to Breakers, Sans Costume

The end-all be-all of San Francisco events is almost here. That's right, this Sunday brings with it the mad drunken parade that is Bay to Breakers.

Unfortunately this year's "race" totally snuck up on us so we decided to forgo the costume and instead opt for something cute, sporty, and ready for a long day of people watching and multitasking (re: drinking while walking).

And while a romper might not seem like the most logical choice when limited bathrooms are involved, in fact we feel quite the opposite. It provides the perfect excuse to stay out of the woods and make your friends join you on a stall-seeking adventure.

Look of the Week: Easter Sunday

Easter was so much cooler as a kid.

Not only did it mean a frilly new dress, matching hat and straw basket full of assorted bunny and egg-shaped candies, there was the sugar-fueled Easter Egg Hunt.

And while we'd like to think we've grown up quite a bit since then, we still love the thrill of the hunt, though now it usually involves scouring vintage racks rather than a grassy knoll.

That being said, it seems we're not the only ones that see the world through pastel-colored glasses this time of the year. Tie and dip-dye prints are making a serious comeback this season (think less Summer of Love and more melted sorbet), and suffice it to say we're totally on board.
