Look of the Week: Funky-Fresh Booties for Fall

It's that time of year again when transplants from the Northwest and New England get nostalgic for the autumns they once knew, while the Indian summer still lingers in the distance (le sigh). So what's the perfect shoe for this in-between season? Ankle boots. And to go with the funky weather patterns of late, we decided to pull together seven funky styles.

Step into fall with these dynamic kicks.

Street Style Report: Two Timbuk2 Employees Show Us Four Bike-Friendly Looks in The Mission

Some would say the epitome of SF street style would be great bike fashion, found at a hip, local company in the Mission. Timbuk2's Jared Fickel (left) and Lizzy Fallows (right) certainly fit the SF style profile. We caught up with the savvy city cyclists at Timbuk2's swanky Mission HQ, for a little tour and to talk bikes and fashion.

Seven Favorite Things: Badass Adventure Gear from Triple Aught Design

Gear up for your fall adventures with locally-designed, high-performance equipment from Triple Aught Design

Headquartered in the Dogpatch (right next to Serpentine), TAD was founded in 1997, by Patrick Ma, a modern explorer on a mission to create stylish, hyper-functional adventure gear for himself and other modern explorers.

Look of the Week: Men's Suede Sneakers for Fall

Recently, we noticed a new surge in suede shoes -- and we're serious about our suede.  In particular, we're digging the rise of the suede sneaker (or at least that's what we're calling it).

From all-suede high-tops (#3) to mixed-fabric low-tops (#5, #7), the textures and colors are perfect for fall -- plus, the soft leather adds sophistication to classics like Vans (#1) and Converse (#2). Here are our top picks.

Street Style Report: Top Looks from Macy's Glamorama at The Orpheum Theatre

Last weekend, Macy's Glamorama stormed the Orpheum Theatre (and later the Asian Art Museum), bringing together SF's fashion elite, philanthropists, and teenyboppers swooning over headliner, Robin Thicke.

We went, we saw and we photographed these amazing looks from Macy's Fashion Incubator designers, a local b-boy, and more.

Seven Favorite Things: The Brooklyn Circus SF

Another academic year is kicking off, and shoot -- no one does adult school swagger quite like The Brooklyn Circus (BKc).  

Okay, so maybe you're not heading back to the classroom. But even so, SF's autumn is somewhere around the corner and the BKc Fillmore St. flagship has everything you need to stay warm and look fresh this season. Among our top picks are several pieces from the house line, plus essential fall footwear by Florsheim by Duckie Brown and PF Flyers

Look of the Week: Glamorama-Inspired Jewels from Macy's

After touring through Minneapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles, Macy's Glamorama will take over the Orpheum Theatre tomorrow night in its closing show. This year, the nearly 30-year-old annual fashion, music, and fundraising institution will feature the poppy YouTube-discovery, Karmin, and oh-la-la headliner, Robin Thicke, in addition to fall runway looks by Bar III (#1, #4), Calvin Klein and more.

Street Style Report: Faux Fur, Purple Suede & Marc Jacobs, in Lower Nob Hill

Last weekend, I caught up with Jamie Kopmann, outside her digs in Lower Nob Hill. Jamie's the proud momma to Charlie, a 6-year-old Boston Terrier-Mini Schnauzer rescue pup, and the newest lifestyle maven at Bread & Butter PR in Potrero.

Seven Favorite Things: the Curiosity Shoppe x Target (Launches this Sunday!)

Remember the ridiculous lines for Missoni x Target? Or maybe you heard about how crashed from the overload of fashionistas looking to get their manicured hands on a coveted piece from the zig-zaggy collection. We're hoping this Sunday's new launch won't be quite as bad, but we'd camp out just in case -- especially for these limited edition pieces from SF's very own, the Curiosity Shoppe.

Look of the Week: Something Blue

This fall, one of our favorite statement colors is the simple, flattering, and now ultra modern blue.

When it comes to wearing the classic shades of cobalt just remember, the bolder the better.
