Trunk Shows & Sales

Gilt Groupe

I heart SF. But I’ll be the first to admit I’ve always been a little jealous of New Yorkers with their easy access to sample sales. Where else can you stumble upon an unmarked storefront packed with discounted designer goods en route to a post-work happy hour on pretty much any given day?

Roland Mouret's SF Debut

Roland Mouret knows women. This much is clear when you see the glove-like fit and perfect proportions of the timeless dresses and elegant skirt suits created by the dapper London-based, French-born fashion designer. Known for his signature draping technique, good looks (he started out as a model), and iconic Galaxy dress made famous by a curvaceous Scarlett Johansen who sported the frock on the red carpet, Mouret has been steadily garnering a following among Tinsel town A-listers and fashion editors alike since he launched his first collection during London’s Fashion Week in 1998.

The Vintage Fashion Expo is a treasure trove for clotheshorses and fashion devotees, but for someone who is easily distracted, like me, it can be overwhelming (in a good way). This weekend, the Nob Hill Masonic Center was transformed into a vintage lover’s dream: 85 clothing and accessories dealers ready to outfit you in all sorts of goodies.

If you love the thrill of the hunt the way I do, The Warehouse Sale is where you’ll want to spend a good chunk of your weekend. This gargantuan sale promises to deliver more than 20,000 items (most of them are premium denim at up to 80% off retail). For the warehouse sale novice, these massive blowouts can put an infrequent bargain hunter into borderline freak-out mode. To avoid a retail meltdown, here are my top three tips:

Arrive (and leave) early.

The coming change in seasons brings a welcome shift in fashion: fresh prints, lighter weight fabrics and new silhouettes. But before breaking the bank on your floral-enhanced spring wardrobe, visit some of our favorite San Francisco shops where we’ve scoped out last-minute fall and resort buys at unreasonably low prices.

Ladies, if you’re in the mood to squeeze in a bit of pre-spring cleaning during your long weekend, start with your closets. If you’re anything like me, there’s a growing collection of barely worn formalwear—a veritable visual timeline of your wedding and gala-attending history collecting in some dark corner, just begging to be purged for the greater fashion good.
