If you're hosting NYE this year (or need a gift for someone who is), we recommend stopping by Zinc Details for some last-minute life savers. The Lower Pacific Heights boutique is full of modern, conversation-starting pieces that are sure to help you drink and celebrate your way into 2013.
We'll cheers to that!
If there's one thing you can count on, it's New Year's Eve being one big sparklefest. Show your celebratory style with a pair of festive pumps and step out into the new year with a bit of glitz and glamour.
We spotted the perfectly layered Ellie Choi, on her recent visit to SF.
Ellie works as an accountant in Chicago, and when she's not busy crunching numbers, she indulges in food and fashion. We love how she mixed textures and colors for this wintery concoction.
There's no time like the holidays to really go the extra mile. Sure, the gift is important, but the card is where you can really get sentimental (or just be an endearing smart-ass). Top off each of your well-wrapped gifts with a lovely little note from Hello! Lucky.
The local team of artisan letterpressers really know how to kick up the kitsch when it comes to Christmas cards. Take a peek at our favorites and stop by their SoMa digs (977 Howard at 6th) or a local retailer to pick some up.

If you've been holiday shopping near Union Square these past few weekends, you may have seen bagpiper Jim McElroy playing a mix of holiday carols and traditional Scottish music. He draws crowds with both his music and his presence -- his head-to-toe Scottish look is a sight to see, with every button and fold in perfect place.
And now, a little something for all of the aspiring chefs, interior decorators, gardeners and crafters in your life. Show them some holiday love with these fun finds from local boutiques.
This week, we headed to Union Square, thinking we'd find stylish holiday shoppers, or perhaps a festive ice skater. Instead we ended up spotting Tobi Becker, a young tourist visiting from Frankfurt. Leave it to Europeans to travel in style. We love the quilting on his leather jacket, and how his look flows from black to brown.
