More than 200 guests enjoyed glasses of bubbly, hip catering by Adam's Grub Truck, and yummy chocolates from Little John's Candies.

2. Boot Camp
Last week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reality star Kyle Richards got her first Brazilian wax on national television. Richards spread her legs and told her waxer, "I was thinking a Dorothy Hamill. I don't want the Telly Savalas!"
Regardless of which side you stand on, the question of waxing has always been the case for heated discussion, as evidenced in our Great Waxing Debate last week.
Whether you're one to bare it all or more of the "landing strip" type, you shouldn't drop your knickers for just anyone. So if you are going to take the plunge, here's our guide to the best Brazilians in SF.
Rainy days seem to have left SF with the holidays, and we couldn't be happier. In fact, we're already dreaming of lush Spring wardrobes and luckily, Neiman Marcus is here to help.

When you know what you're looking for, purchasing for a home can be more of a fun treasure hunt than an exhausting expidition. Enter Deborah Needleman, founding editor-in-chief of Domino magazine (RIP) an all-around interior design guru.
Yesterday's devastating loss of two irreplaceable icons and the ensuing buzz that occured left us thinking that sometimes it's best to simply take a look back at the feathered beauty and King of Pop's most memorable looks and let the images speak for themselves:
Seeing as this past Monday was the Oscars of the fashion industry, we decided to salute the CFDA (that's the Council of Fashion Designers of America for those who always or never wondered) Awards by featuring three of this year's winners: Calvin Klein, SF native Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler.
