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. The busy corporate event planner, may have settled down the coast, but she's still a Bay Area girl at heart and always makes time for (shopping-filled) SF getaways.
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.
Kim Eschenmann, known to her friends as the "Mad Hattrix", is nothing if not fabulously expressive. She splits her time between Oakland and SF and works as a consultant in the dental world. While that's her left-brain action, Kim also has "an extremely hedonistic side that embraces fashion, food and frivolity." This is definitely the mode she was in last night when I caught her outside Starbelly in the Castro.
1. Designers on Design: Tony Walton at The Museum of Performance and Design, Monday March 21, 7pm, $15-$30.
The Museum of Performance and Design launches their new conversation series, Designers on Design, tonight, with the legendary costume and set designer, Tony Walton. After a career as a Broadway set designer in NYC and London, Walton hit the big screen in 1964, as the costume designer and visual consultant for Mary Poppins. His detailed costume work was immediately recognized with an Oscar nod, but it wasn't until 1980 that he won an Oscar for his designs in All That Jazz. All of this and more will be discussed when Walton joins Brad Rosenstein, Curator of Exhibitions for the MPD, in an intimate conversation on Walton's life and five decades of work. Photos and footage behind-the-scenes of Broadway and Hollywood will accompany the conversation.
