Weekend Guide: Ladies Arm Wrestling, 4/20, Goats & More

Get your weekend on with these can't-miss Bay Area happenings.

A Knife Party, New SF-Based Skincare Line, Topshop Pop-Up, and More

This Friday, February 13, San Francisco's Fiat Lux jewelry store will host My Bloody Valentine, a party to celebrate the shop's 2nd Annual Maker's Competition. Owners Alexei and Marie challenged seven designers to craft a hand-made knife.

Look of the Week: Hot Spring Wallets

What better incentive is there for spring wallet cleaning than to buy yourself a fabulous new piece to keep everything neat and organized? Luckily, the big color and bold pattern trends are alive and kicking in the realm of small leather goods, making these spring wallets every bit as lovely as they are useful. And with bold new designs like the McQ By Alexander McQueen studded orange wallet (#1), many of these can easily double as an evening clutch.

Look of the Week: 7 Men's Cardigans for the Shifty Weather

It's sweater weather – no doubt about it – and cardigans are the answer. The versatility factor alone makes them a wardrobe essential for every San Francisco man. And don't let anyone tell you a button-down knit isn't manly, because it is. In fact, men's cardigans are stylish, practical and quite flattering when worn correctly. Here's how. 

Look of the Week: 10 Tights We Love

Fact:  stockings make great (last-minute) stocking stuffers. Here are our top 10.

Look of the Week: Women's Cold Weather Accessories We Love

From two-tone Cuban heel tights to Hi-5 mittens and fancy knits to faux furs -- keep warm and stylish this winter with these six treasures.

Look of the Week: Day + Night for SF Cocktail Week This Weekend

One dress + six accessories = a slew of fun looks. For this weekend's SF Cocktail Week, we'll focus on just two: day and night. For more casual events like today's East Bay Showdown, or Sunday's Belvedere Bloody Mary Brunch, go for the funkier day look. For fancier soirees like tomorrow's Barbary Coast Bazaar, or Saturday's The Legend Awards, doll-up for a glitzier evening look.

Look of the Week: Wear White (While You Still Can) This Labor Day

If you swear by the hard rules of fashion, then consider this your last call for wearing white. Fortunately, this Labor Day weekend, the forecast is set for sunny skies and an easy, breezy 70-degrees. So go on, wear those whites while you still can. 

While the forecast is promising, if you're spending time on the windy waters, or looking for a nice day-to-night ensemble, opt for a maxi dress and pack a light sweater. Add spice with a few vibrant accessories, a finish with messy braid and a coral red lipstick. Bon weekend.

Look of the Week: A Wearable Spin on Harajuku Trends for the J-Pop Festival

This Saturday, Japanophiles from all over the Bay will pay homage to Tokyo's Harajuku district by wearing "costumes" ranging from goth to Lolita (think Little Bo Peep). It'll be just one of many interesting sights at this year's J-Pop Summit Festival in Japantown.

While you may not want to go all-out for this one, you can still dress for the occasion by incorporating key trends:  bows, Peter Pan collars, lace, Mary-Janes, platforms, and black. Luckily, many of these trends are in this fall, too. We spun the Harajuku staples into a modern, completely wearable look, with versatile separates that you'll cherish this fall.

Look of the Week: Wicked Plants at the Conservatory of Flowers

This week's look is inspired by the Conservatory of Flowers exhibit, Wicked Plants: Botanical Rogues & Assassins, currently on display in the special exhibits gallery. The exhibit is built around the poisonous-as-they-are-pretty plants in Amy Stewart's 2009 New York Times Bestseller, Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, which documents historically murderous plants.

Check out the exhibit this summer, and show your enthusiasm with a wicked floral print. From unconventional sunnies to kitschy Marc by Marc Jacobs wedges, we pulled together a collection of florals to accent any outfit.
