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.
For unique gift ideas (ahem: impressive pieces for the design snobs in your life), we turned to Karikter in Union Square.
The local boutique also has a full online offering, featuring ordinary, useful products -- with a carefully designed twist. For example, the item pictured above is...oh, just your everyday pepper mill. (Yeah, that's the coolest pepper mill we've ever seen, too.) Color us impressed.
Looking for easy gifts for her? Flirty tights (#5), chunky knit scarves (#7) and detailed gloves (#4) will keep the ladies in your life stylish and warm all winter long. Winter accessories make the perfect stocking stuffers and better yet, our gift picks are all from local boutiques.
Last weekend, we called upon personal stylist and full-time mom, Kelly Werner, to show us a few holiday party looks. We photographed her with her greatest accessory -- her adorable son, Bey -- at their home in the Mission.
Festive company soirees, fancy cocktails with the girls, your revolt against the ugly Christmas sweater...the list goes on! We're guessing your December is booked with a number of party dress-appropriate events and, since we love any excuse to dress up, we thought we'd put together a few options for you.
From the hip lines at Acrimony, to the ultra-luxe collections at Elizabeth Charles, here are our picks for celebrating in style.
Whether you're shopping for yourself or for loved ones, give him a gift with both style and warmth. From an handsome vintage Rolex (#7) to a locally-designed wool cap (#2), here are our men's accessory picks from SF boutiques.
Originally from Memphis, we spotted local gal Cristina Ziegler by the Embarcadero. We loved her polished, urban look and messy bun.
