On a recent stroll through the Ferry Building, we spotted Mathieu Bunin (left) and Miguel Barragan (right), enjoying a Sunday morning coffee. We love the cool layers and how Miguel's rocks his look -- a studded herringbone coat, teal pants, pink suede shoes and a nicely tipped hat -- with such swagger.
In 2004, Jennifer D'Angelo was screen-printing tees and totes out of her apartment, calling her pet project, Nooworks (named after her pup, Noo Noo). Today, she has her hands full with a Mission shop/gallery, a full online shop, a small team of local designers, and endless artist collaborations.
Start your new year with a new home. One of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to add color and personality to your living and bedrooms is with statement pillows. From screen-printed SF maps (#2) to flirty bikes (#7), here are seven pillows to mix, match, and brighten your home.
We love a healthy dose of black and gold. On a recent visit to Westfield San Francisco Centre, we were dazzled by the flashy yet not overdone looks of Mariah (left) and Sofie (right). Both girls are college students and work as stylists at Michael Kors. We love how their bold outfits are balanced with soft hair and makeup -- and two super sweet smiles.
In Japanese "Muji" means "no brand." Aptly named, we love the new-to-San Francisco Japanese retailer for their clean, no-frills designs and practical lifestyle goods.
With over 2,000 products available in their 7,250 square foot, two-story SoMa retail space, it was difficult choosing only seven favorites.
If you're hosting NYE this year (or need a gift for someone who is), we recommend stopping by Zinc Details for some last-minute life savers. The Lower Pacific Heights boutique is full of modern, conversation-starting pieces that are sure to help you drink and celebrate your way into 2013.
We'll cheers to that!
If there's one thing you can count on, it's New Year's Eve being one big sparklefest. Show your celebratory style with a pair of festive pumps and step out into the new year with a bit of glitz and glamour.
We spotted the perfectly layered Ellie Choi, on her recent visit to SF.
Ellie works as an accountant in Chicago, and when she's not busy crunching numbers, she indulges in food and fashion. We love how she mixed textures and colors for this wintery concoction.
There's no time like the holidays to really go the extra mile. Sure, the gift is important, but the card is where you can really get sentimental (or just be an endearing smart-ass). Top off each of your well-wrapped gifts with a lovely little note from Hello! Lucky.
The local team of artisan letterpressers really know how to kick up the kitsch when it comes to Christmas cards. Take a peek at our favorites and stop by their SoMa digs (977 Howard at 6th) or a local retailer to pick some up.
