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!
Unless you're living in a cave, you've heard about the forthcoming collab between Target and Neiman Marcus, scheduled to make its big debut on Dec. 1. We're all waiting with bated breath to find out who the 24 CFDA designers are, so today we bring you a special behind-the-scenes look at who's creating the exclusive products for this collection.
I met photographer Abraham (Abe) Espiritu a few years back, and have always dug how he pieces modern and vintage clothing to present personal, yet on-trend looks. Last weekend, I asked him to pull together a few rain-and-shine spring looks for a little photoshoot in his hood, Bernal Heights. The end result included a fantastic mix of rain boots, black-on-black, white pants, sockless oxfords, a cool chambray, and fiery vintage prints. Check it out.
I have a motto: When the world zags — zig. But when the world brings Missoni to the masses, I say zig zags for all. Not since Matthew Williamson's collection for H&M have I been so excited for a high/low collaboration. Tomorrow, Missoni for Target brings their definitive luxury zig zags and graphic prints to Target stores worldwide and online. As exciting as it is, the 400-piece collection is overwhelming. Spanning womenswear, menswear, girls, baby, and home, I have curated a San Francisco-centric selection of seven picks from the look book.
Did you hear? Target is invading the San Francisco bubble with a store taking over the second floor of the Metreon in early 2012, coupled with a dramatic makeover to the 4th & Mission complex from basically a cavernous movie theater and a few arcade games into a downtown shopping destination. We tried to uncover the progress of Target's move to the space awhile ago, but the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency kept their mouths shut, until the Chronicle reported the latest this morning.
Sorry girls, this week brought word that Ben Sherman is planning to exit the women’s apparel business for good.
Rodarte for Target arrived in stores and the retailer’s online shop yesterday. By early afternoon, almost every item we perused online was already out of stock.

The Target To-Go holiday pop-up shop in Mint Plaza is officially in full swing. The "store" opened to the public at 10 a.m. this morning and hoardes of bullseye-loving cityslickers are already pouring in. The concept, which we blogged about earlier this week on Domain, is simple—a range of products behind glass cases that brings the idea of window shopping to life. You grab a clipboard with purchase form and then check off the numbered items you would like to buy before heading to checkout. Your items then come to you via "conveyer belt," in the form of neatly packaged presents already wrapped and ready to take their spot under your tree. It's all very Santa's workshop.
While Target's takeover of the Metreon might not be a done deal for a while, the raucous calls of tweets appear to have been answered for now: Just in time for the holidays, the bullseye is coming to town. Yes, everyone's favorite super-chain will be setting up temporary shop in Mint Plaza for this weekend only, but don't run down with your list of necessities just yet. The holiday event, touted as 'Target-to-Go', will be sticking to an edited selection of giftables–think toys, games, beauty packs, and more. Everything will be ready and wrapped, perfect for last-minute dashes to score that Secret Santa gift you almost forgot.
