There is no try. There is only build, and let the building begin! Starting in just about an hour here, a ginormous LEGO Santa Yoda is being constructed in Union Square next to the Holiday Ice Rink. Two (of only 12) certified LEGO Master Builders will be on site, guiding the construction of the massive, 12' x 10' toy statue. The public is invited to help piece together the more than 6,000 oversized LEGO blocks, too, so stop by and get your build on.
Baby, it's cold outside. And it's only getting colder. Warm up with these toasty-hot men's accessories -- all sourced from neighborhood boutiques. Ranging from a not-too-puffy vest to a locally designed woven leather cap, these manly treasures will accent your winter wardrobe while blocking out the cold.
Oh, the beauty of supply and demand. Now you can keep your precious iPad safe and sound in some very pretty packaging by iconic designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs. The emerging trend of tech-friendly arm candy makes us ask -- why weren't lapbot bags this lovely? P.S. If you're eyeing these for your Android tablet, don't worry, we won't tell.
Last year, the retro rockabilly mecca, Bettie Page clothing, opened shop in the Haight. A little bird told me the girls there have some serious vintage swagger, so I thought I'd head over and check it out. I found (left to right) Jessica Goss, Liz Ireland, Mindy Gaines, and Hayley Griffin, done up in pin-up. These ladies are lucky enough to call their dress code a job perk.
Who says you shouldn't go into business with your best friend? Last year, BFFs Jessica Dega and Laura Cerri, ditched their industry jobs and co-founded Black Pyramid vintage, right here in SF. Since their launch, the e-comm site has developed into a full-fledged modern vintage resource. Each piece is hand-picked, reasonably priced and, instead of covering all of fashion history, the collection focuses on reasonably priced pieces that span more modern (but now vintage) decades. Cruise our top fall picks above and then catch the darling duo tonight at their pop-up shop in the Haight.
With overcast skies rolling in, add a little kick to your step with a pair of bright laces. These six classics with a twist range from business casual (subtle blue-on-black action), to dramatic, head-turning laces for the more daring San Francisco man. For an easy alternative, try switching out the laces (and resole, if needed) to updated your favorite pair.
The Castro Diesel store always has a well-dressed crowd. When we stopped by last week, the store manager, BJ Bundalian, was sporting a simple warm weather look, loaded with fun details.
All dressed up and nowhere to go? Nonsense! Check out our picks for the most fashionable Halloween parties in SF.
