Street Style Report: Laid-Back Wine Country Style at Ram's Gate Winery, in Sonoma

With a sprawling, must-see interior, fantastic wine and food pairings, and such chic employees, it's no question -- Ram's Gate has some serious swagger. 

Upon a recent visit to the Sonoma winery, we spotted employees Marc Hartenfels (left) and Sonia Tarbox (right), in stylish yet laid-back looks that were perfect for wine country.

Seven Favorite Things: Artisan-Made Accessories + Home Decor from Lydali

When it comes to accessories and home decor, "fair trade" and "artisan made" can sometimes be a bit too traditional – beautiful pieces, but perhaps better suited for museums than your wardrobe.

Lydali, a new locally-based etailer, is looking to shake up that train of thought by selling artisan-made goods that look like they're from the next big indie designer.  

Look of the Week: Men's Textured Leather Belts

What's one accessory most men can get behind? Belts. Sure, they're mostly functional, but that doesn't mean they should be flat and boring. In fact, you'd be surprised how much a little belt can do to complete your look.

Street Style Report: A Steven Alan Store Manager Reveals Her Personal Style on Fillmore St.

The super adorable beanie-clad gal above would be Lindsey Hanka, the shop manager of Steven Alan on Fillmore St.

Born in SF and raised in NoPa, Lindsey went to school in Chicago and fell in love in Minneapolis before returning to our fine city by the Bay (with her hubby) three years ago. She now calls the TenderNob home, happily wears Steven Alan daily, and roams the city in flats. 

Seven Favorite Things: D-Structure's New Online Shop + Two Must-Attend Events

D-Structure part apparel shop, one part art gallery, and one part intimate venue for cool local events -- and now add ecommerce destination to that heckuva cocktail recipe.  

 The Lower Haight multi-purpose space (that also goes by DSF) launched a new e-store last week with their staple selection of men's t-shirts, plus a big new focus on womenswear. Here are our women's picks for the Indian summer (fingers crossed) ahead.

Look of the Week: Seeing Stripes

America's Cup is roaring across the Bay. Our tip for not overdoing the sailor-chic look is to ditch the red, white and blue, and opt for some not-so-nautical stripes.  From a black and white bodysuit to side-striped sunglasses, here are a few picks to help get you started.

Street Style Report: A Barneys Stylist Shows Us Four Fall Looks, in the Tenderloin

We asked one of our favorite Barneys sales/style gurus, Alan "Al Bizzy" Maramag, to show us a little preview of what he'll be rocking this fall.

Seven Favorite Things: Quirky Homewares from Park Life

They say it's all about the location -- foot traffic, visibility, etc. Park Life is one store that begs to differ. The Inner Richmond gallery/boutique has long been one of my favorite places in San Francisco, and is reason enough to make a little trip out to the Richmond. They have a selection that ensues both laughter and inspiration upon each visit -- and our above favorite picks are no exception. Check them out. 

Look of the Week: Locally Designed Men's T-Shirts

From local artist Tucker Nichols' quirky collection at Park Life to the vibrant animal print t-shirts designed by Artillery AG owner, Ivan Lopez, we scoured through endless (virtual) piles of t-shirts and found seven stand-out designs from local artists. Guys (We're talking to you, Zuck.), if you're going to wear a t-shirt, wear one of these. 

Street Style Report: Two Cute Festival Looks, in Lower Pac Heights

We spotted friends, Afton Love (left) and Anna Lee Kerlin (right), with adorable smiles, lovely layers and eye-catching prints.  Afton (wicked cool name!), lives in the hip Temescal district of Oakland, and works in SF, as the manager of the luxe Fillmore Street boutique, Erica Tanov. Anna Lee lives in Daly City and uses fashion as a means of self expression. "I change my clothes sometimes 20 times a day," said Anna Lee. "I don't even explain it to people anymore."
