Macy's Glamorama: Bruno Mars, Far East Movement, Tracy Reese + A Killer Fashion Show this Friday

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

SF Street Style: High Contrast + Rocker Chic in Hayes Valley

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.

This Week in Fashion: Our Favorites from the New Fall Collections at Conifer

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. 

Look of the Week: Day + Night for SF Cocktail Week This Weekend

One dress + six accessories = a slew of fun looks. For this weekend's SF Cocktail Week, we'll focus on just two: day and night. For more casual events like today's East Bay Showdown, or Sunday's Belvedere Bloody Mary Brunch, go for the funkier day look. For fancier soirees like tomorrow's Barbary Coast Bazaar, or Saturday's The Legend Awards, doll-up for a glitzier evening look.

Levi's + Urban Outfitters Pop-Up Bike Carnival, Tonight at Levi's HQ!

All summer long the Levi's Mobile Bike Shop has been parading around the country, stopping in select cities to set up a pop-up bike carnival, in celebration of the Commuter Series by Levi's (available at Urban Outfitters). The crew has traveled a long way from NYC, but they're finally here -- the hometown celebration starts this afternoon at Levis HQ.

SF Street Style: Sweet Summer Androgyny at CAPSULE, in Hayes Valley

I spotted Liz Jackson yesterday, first at Flipper's, then at CAPSULE in Hayes Valley. And, well, I'm pretty sure I have a girl crush. Liz was sporting this perfectly androgynous outfit and had the attitude and smile to really carry it off.

This look comes down to the details. I love the layered, open henley and shirt collars, the varied sleeve lengths, the thick suspenders, the blue-on-blue, the messy hair -- basically the whole look, right down to white rubber band bracelet, and random rocking chair tat.

SF Street Style: A Local Stylist Wears Parachute Pants, Vintage + YSL, in the Mission

Local stylist Alix Jiang, caught outside Four Barrel (my new favorite hot spot for shooting Street Style), enjoying a nice iced coffee. Adorable bowl-cut and statement glasses aside, the way her breezy parachute pants moved is what really caught my eye.
