Last weekend, we spotted newlyweds, Fidel Lirio (left) and Stephen Candelino (right), dressed down (but still looking fab) after directing a photo shoot on Fillmore St. Fidel works as a creative director for Dockers, and Stephen is a wardrobe stylist who works with Levi's, Gap, Uniqlo and Ralph Lauren.
The dapper duo got married last June in NYC, with a small and slightly impromptu ceremony in the lobby of the Bowery Hotel. "We wanted to get married -- not have a wedding," said Fidel. "We celebrated our relationship on our terms, in the very spot (exact sofa to boot!) where we shared our first cocktail."
This week, we were inspired by Michael Phelps' record breaking moment and the Men's Swimming 4x200 Freestyle Relay victory by Team USA.
When it comes to more leisurely swimming, don't hold back on style. Swimwear is one realm of men's fashion where bold prints, big patterns, and bright colors are always acceptable.
Here are our men's poolside picks.
With a constant flow of posh tourists and art-savvy locals, SFMOMA is always a hot spot for great fashion in San Francisco. Last weekend, while checking out the new, kitschy-cool Cindy Sherman exhibit, local girl, Kristin Evans caught our eye. Kristin's job is as hardcore as her sense of style -- she works as a probation officer in Sacramento, and plays in SF on the weekends.
Belts are an essential piece in the modern female wardrobe. They easily elevate ordinary looks by creating shape, supplying texture, and adding color.
Still, to many, $100+ is a bit much to spend on a belt. I beg to differ. I've always believed it's smart to invest in quality accessories that you'll use over and over, for years to come. After all, ladies, how many times have you said to yourself, "I'd have to wear a belt with it."? (Not necessarily a bad thing!)
Get the most out of that hip-hugger with a fabulous statement belt -- here are the top seven currently on our radar.
Last weekend, we swung by Fort Mason (along with half the Bay Area!) for the Renegade Craft Fair. The fair started nearly 10 years ago in Chicago, and now hits six cities a year with a caravan of craftsmen, women, and artists of all sorts.
Among the sea of DIYers, we spotted four California class acts – a Santa Cruz dressmaker, two local tea guys, and a jewelry maker from LA – with fabulous threads to match their awesome merch.
The two-year-old fashion favorite, Chloe Rose, is now playing with the big girls - online. The Cow Hollow boutique recently lauched their first eCommerce (and more!) site, featuring clothing, shoes and accessoriesfrom brands like Cynthia Steffe (#2, #4), Parker (#6), and Aryn K.
The site also features owner, Marissa Olson's hot picks of the season, a blog to boot (featuring tons of local photoshoots & new merch), and of course, some mad pinspiration (Be ready for some serious repinning.). For now, we'll focus on the clothing - here are our favorite pieces from the new online collection.
The wave of late-summer-to-early-fall weddings is fast approaching. When it comes to dressing for such occasions, think summer-sharp - with a bit of flair. The easiest way to accomplish such a fashionable feat? A great necktie.
Here are seven of this season's best ties ($29.99-$180) to get you from the ceremony to the dance floor - in true summer style.
We'd like to welcome the lovely Melissa Ding to San Francisco. A Princeton University smarty and lover of all things fashion, Melissa's in town for the summer, living it up in North Beach, and interning at Gap, Inc. She's only been here for a month, but is already taking full advantage of the good eats and creativity in SF - check out her hot spots below!
