Le Point Wants to Help With Those (Gym) Resolutions

All of them trés chic of course, including Alo, LNDR, Stretch Wash, Vimmia, Year of Ours and, unsurprisingly, Bkr water bottles. The boutique kicks off the event with a fashionable fete Thursday night (6 to 9pm) hosted by one of SF's most popular style bloggers, Carlina Harris of Allergic to Vanilla. Even more motivation? Activewear purchases come with a goodie bag filled with class passes from local studios. // 301 Valencia St. (Mission), shoplepoint.com

Spritz Alert: SF Renaissance Woman Launches Carta

Meet our first official girl crush of the year: Heather D'Angelo. She's a musician (Au Revoir Simone), an ecologist and now a perfumer thanks to Carta. The line debuts with a limited-edition fragrance, Moena 12 | 69. Like all of its future paraben- and cruelty-free scent siblings, Moena features a signature essential oil personally sourced by D'Angelo, who traveled to the Peruvian Amazon to partner with nonprofit Camino Verde for access to Moena Alcanfor, a rare essential oil that's steam-distilled from the leaves and branches of the Moena tree. So what does it smell like? "Herbaceous, soft, and earthy, with hints of fresh-brewed tea," says D'Angelo. To this, notes of wild ginger, soaked moss and tobacco leaves are added for an overall scent she describes as reminiscent of the rainforest. Three-hundred gorgeous bottles (50 ml) were produced and sell for $295. A portion of proceeds are donated to Camino Verde.

Petite Ave Makes for Fashionable Strolling

The tagline for SF's e-comm fashion startup Petite Ave leaves no doubt about its raison d'etre: "Clothing for women five-foot-four and under—top brands on one site with one easy checkout." Founded by one-woman-show Vanessa Youshaei because, yes, she's short and got tired of struggling to find fashionable clothing that fit. "I quit my full-time job to make my dream a reality. By aggregating petite clothing from a bunch of different retailers, my goal is to help petites discover new brands, find pieces that work for their body shape and make the overall shopping experience more convenient." A few of the brands currently available (new labels and retailers are added regularly) include Express, White House Black Market, Lane Bryant (through size 28P), 7 for All Mankind, Adrianna Papell, Ann Taylor, Bloomingdale's, LOFT, Marks & Spencer, Missguided and Paige. Shoes of Prey (starting at size 2) is coming soon. // petiteave.com
