Move over Mad Men -- this year, set the clock back a few extra decades and look to the ladies of Boardwalk Empire for some big Halloween inspiration. 

ACRE/SF Brings Clothing + Coffee to North Beach

Calling all bridge & tunnelers, tourists and yes, even you locals -- there's a new reason to head out to North Beach, and it's not for a night of epic boozing, but rather, for a daytime tryst. That's right, take a little urban hike out to Acrimony's amazing new sister-store, ACRE/SF, a cafe-clothier that recently opened on Telegraph Hill.

For her latest retail endeavor, local fashion darling Jenny Chung chose to open a concept store that incorporates the little pleasures in life: clothing, accessories and a good cup of coffee. Twice the size of Acrimony, the loftly new storefront houses a full boutique and cafe, serving keenly fresly brewed Blue Bottle coffee, an assortment of bottled beverages, daily pastries from House of Bagels, and even some It's-Its ice creams sandwiches. That's right, ladies and gents -- shopping just got a lot sweeter.

SF Street Style: Color Block Dress + Adorable iPhone Case

Meet the lovely Abigail Holtz, a product manager at Google who worked on Boutiques.com. I caught up with her outside The Grove in Hayes Valley, in this colorful print -- a refreshing print for the office, or a fun weekend day dress. Taking a closer look, Abigail had some fabulous accessories going on, too.

We love these seemingly simple (in the front) little black dresses–especially with their clever, excellent designs (in the back).

SF Street Style: Deceivingly Simple Menswear in Civic Center

I spotted Gio Adame near Civic Center, in a deceivingly simple get up. I didn't realize it then, but I actually photographed Gio awhile back, in a very different look. What I like about his outfit below is that the fit and lengths are right on, and the details are slamming -- check out those cuffs and that perforated patent!

This Week in Fashion: Neiman+foursquare Find It and Win Event, Concerts at John Varvatos and Conifer + More

Look of the Week: 5 Cool Unisex Finds for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass This Weekend

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is celebrating 11 years this weekend at Golden Gate Park. Over 50 bands will play on six stages, providing three days of folksy fodder. While the line-up is stronger than ever, we're thinking a scaled-back, bluesy-cool look would be best for shooting the breeze and enjoying the music.
