Seven Favorite Things: Myrrhia's Collection

We've fallen in love with the Spring/Summer 2013 knitwear collection from the Oakland-based line, Myrrhia

Look of the Week: Men's Spring Denim from Local Boutiques

Men's Spring Denim

For most guys, spring wardrobe cleaning starts with a fresh pair of jeans.

Street Style Report: Clutch Love in Union Square

While shooting around Union Square, we had to stop Vanessa Nguyen and ask about her beautiful leather clutch. It's a one-of-a-kind piece, made by her brother, who hand-burned and -painted the brightly-colored rose onto the tan leather. 

Seven Favorite Things: Half Hitch Goods

Introducing Half Hitch Goods, our new gift go-to. (And that includes gifts for ourselves.) 

Peppered with locally-crafted treasures and exclusive finds, we found ourselves drawn to SF-made fine leather goods by Mat Brown, strangely beautiful rag dolls from Petaluma, and eco-luxe jewelry by SF-based designer, Julia Vasic.

Look of the Week: Céline-Inspired Flared Top Bags for Spring

Céline-inspired handbags

The flared top of the coveted Céline Trapeze and Luggage handbags is (still) the in silhouette for spring. Add in seasonal color-blocking, roomy interiors and pockets galore, and you've got a bag trend we hope never fades away. 

With hip brands like Reed Krakoff and J. Crew in the mix, here are our picks for Celine-inspired, flared top bags–for (at least) half the price.

Dana Cray Fernie does a lot of fashion. She's a personal shopper at Ambiance in Noe, a freelance personal stylist, and also works as a fashion events coordinator at various fashion weeks around the world.

Seven Favorite Things: Local, Hand-Crafted Jewelry from Sarah Swell

We have a new East Bay obsession: Sarah Swell jewelry. The Oakland-based artisan line was launched in 2008 by owner and sole designer, Sarah Greenberg.

Look of the Week: Men's Spring Shoes in 50 Shades of Red

From bricks to brights, washes of vermillion are emerging as one of spring's biggest men's shoe trends.

Street Style Report: A Jeremy's Buyer Shows Us Four Spring Looks, in Nob Hill

We caught up with master thrifter and Jeremy's assistant buyer, Roderick Huntly Jr., to see what he's mixing up this spring. 

Seven Favorite Things: Spring/Summer '13 Kicks from Freda Salvador

We like to think local designers, Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo, launched Freda Salvador specifically with the SF customer in mind. The luxe shoe line, which officially launched last fall, focuses only on flats and boots -- ideal for walking hills and riding bikes around SF.
