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.
1. Tory Burch: Accessories is now open at Westfield SF Centre. The 1,300 square-foot boutique is the first of the brand's accessories only shops, bursting with the iconic ballet flats and beloved leather bags. Our picks from the fall collection are above, and remember, you can still get TB clothing at the store on Maiden Lane.
We love these seemingly simple (in the front) little black dresses–especially with their clever, excellent designs (in the back).
If you're looking for a hot event to wear one of these stunning pieces to, check out Signature Black, an all black attire affair at Infusion Lounge, this Saturday.
This Thursday, head to Saks Men's Store to preview four incredible Fall 2011 collections: Kenzo, Haversack, Pringle of Scotland, and Viktor & Rolf. Aside from informal modeling, the evening will also include shopping, DJed tunes and light refreshments. Here's our breadown of the collections.
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
1. Neiman Marcus + foursquare Challenge at Neiman Marcus (150 Stockton St.), Saturday October 1, 12pm-4pm, Free.
This Saturday, pop into Neiman and take part in a high-tech, high-reward scavenger hunt. It's simple really: check in on foursquare, get the clues, be the first to find the (above) Nancy Gonzalez clutch, and then take it home for free -- a $995 value! Easy as Apple pie.
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.
Every September we look forward to Macy's Glamorama, an annual, rockstar-meets-runway benefit show with huge headlining acts. Each summer, Glamorama tours four major cities -- Minneapolis, Chicago, and Los Angeles, with a finale in Macy's home-base, San Francisco.
Surprisingly enough, a few tickets are still available for this Friday's event at the Orpheum Theater, with the mad musical skills of Bruno Mars and Far East Movement, and the high-fashion prowess of Tracy Reese. Tickets also get you access to an exclusive after-party with the performers, at the Asian Art Museum.
I caught up with Nadiya Suwardi, an associate at Prada, while shopping in Hayes Valley. Nadiya exudes this very cool, rock 'n' roll confidence, but has a killer sweetheart smile to balance the toughness. The contrasts -- two-toned hair, delicate yet badass tattoos, the floral-on-leopard prints, and how the flirty hemline of her dress falls so nicely into a chunky heel -- are what make this look really great.
The weather may be saying summer, but our fashion minds can't stop channeling fall. We're currently obsessing over the early-bird Fall 2011 finds at local boutique, Conifer.
From staples like Rachel Comey and Woolrich menswear to Pendleton's striking new Portland Collection, (designed by Nathaniel Crissman, Rachel Turk of church & state, and the Decemberists' personal outfitter, John Blasioli.), take a look above to see the cold-weather goodies we're coveting.
