Seven Favorite Things: Uniqlo Men's & Women's Wear + the Scoop on the New Union Square Pop-up!

The cult-loved Japanese clothing chain, Uniqlo, just made their much anticipated West Coast debut -- a bit early and via pop-up.

Yesterday, they opened doors to the Uniqlo Pop Up Experience (117 Post, at Kearny), a tech-inspired teaser shop, generating hype for the opening of their Powell St. flagship store later this fall.

Look of the Week: Women's Essentials for This Weekend at Outside Lands

Look of the Week: Women's Essentials for This Weekend at Outside Lands

As you prepare for Outside Lands, remember it's part mega summer concert, part serious local food fest, and part hipster fashion show.

To make sure you're looking your best, we pulled together a few, fun essentials for this weekend, including:  comfy-all-day wedge sandals (#4), a crossbody bag (#3) to keep those hands free for rocking out in the pit (or Instagramming photos), a killer poncho (#6) for the inevitable evening chill, and a kitschy flamingo throw (#7) to sit back and relax on all day long.

We don't know about you, but we can't wait. See you at Outside Lands!

Street Style Report: A Gorgeous Newlywed Couple in Relaxed Layers, on Fillmore St.

Street Style Report: A Newlywed Couple in Relaxed Layers, on Fillmore St.

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."

Seven Favorite Things: Conifer's Summer Sale

Summer sales are heating up around the city. This week, our sale spotlight is on Conifer, and includes:  printed pieces from Lauren Moffatt (#1, #3), a Steven Alan dress (#4), and an essential Clare Vivier tote (#5).

Look of the Week: Men's Gold Medal Swim Trunks

Look of the Week: Men's Gold Medal Swim Trunks

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.

Street Style Report: A High-low Top + Geometric Bag, at SFMOMA

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.

Seven Favorite Things: Unionmade Semi-Annual Sale

The good men at Unionmade have launched their semi-annual sale, which basically means, it's a damn good time to shop for menswear.

Look of the Week: Statement Belts to Elevate Your Look

STILL WORKING! Look of the Week: Statement Belts

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.

Street Style Report: Four Looks from Vendors at the Renegade Craft Fair

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.

Seven Favorite Things: Chloe Rose's Newly-Launched Website

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.
