You may recognize Kelly Tunstall's artwork from her mermaid murals at Bar Crudo. Or maybe you've come across her work at a local gallery. I first saw her artwork years ago, at 111 Minna, and was instantly charmed. Her whimsical figures and enchanting use of color make her artwork distinct and easily lovable.
I later met Kelly at a party in the Mission, and went gaga over her green Dries Van Noten pumps. It's no surprise that the creator of such lovely pieces of art would have an incredible sense of style, too.
Last weekend, we caught up with sisters and best friends, Nancy Hershey-Lalli (left) and Barbara Heckman (right), storming the amazing consignment finds at Cris, in Russian Hill.
Meet Jenny Bronstein, a Bay Area native turned sun-loving Santa Monica gal. After meeting her last week in the Marina, we're now inspired to smile bigger, laugh louder and be more fabulous.

Local stylist Alix Jiang, caught outside Four Barrel (my new favorite hot spot for shooting Street Style), enjoying a nice iced coffee. Adorable bowl-cut and statement glasses aside, the way her breezy parachute pants moved is what really caught my eye.
With countless weddings, lawn parties and BBQs to attend, who can afford to wear a new designer frock to each event? My secret is consignment. Buy mint-condition pieces for a discounted price, sell your next-to-new goods, and sometimes even help a great charity. Check out these 7 must-shops:
1. Helpers House of Couture: International style icon and philanthropist, Joy Bianchi, turned her love of fashion and good deeds into this 9-room, 100% charity-driven boutique. It features everything from couture to brand-new, an entire men's room, a jewelry room, and one room where everything is under $100. Not to mention, it was named one of the 10 best fashion stores in Vogue's Best Dressed special edition last year. Prices range from $10-$10,000.
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.
