It's pay day—time to shop! Get your paws on a sleek new bag, score a killer deal on a wedding gown, and more fashion-y things this week.
Throw this over your shoulder.
Cuyana's Classic Shoulder Bag ($325) hits the San Francisco showroom (and the interwebs) on Wednesday, February 7th. The structured handbag, crafted with a mix of rich Italian leather and suede, comes in spring-ready colors (quartz and cognac) as well as must-have black. (We can't get enough of the subtle gold hardware detailing.) Fashionable, feminine and ridiculously versatile, the medium-sized beauty epitomizes the SF brand's "fewer better things" philosophy. // 291 Geary St., 2nd fl. (Union Square), cuyana.com.
Pop over to Napa.
It has been a while since we brought you news of the First Street Napa development and, so far, the shopping game looks to be strong. Exhibit A: the opening of State & First, curated by the Santa Monica–based Maris Collective. While we'll have to wait till spring for the permanent outpost to open, a sneak peek is available in pop-up form now through February 28th. Expect clothing, accessories and home goods from a slew of designer labels including MAC Apparel, Golden Goose, Clare V, The Great, Figue, Loeffler Randall and Farmhouse Pottery. // 10am–7pm Monday through Thursday, 10am to 8pm Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 5pm Sunday; 1214 First St. (Napa), firststreetnapa.com.
Shop Lemons, drink Champagne.
We were delighted to learn that one of the cutest local brands, Jenny Lemons—known for hand-painted clothing bearing whimsical bananas, avocados, watermelons and, duh!, lemons—recently set up shop in the Mission. Designer Jenny Lennick is celebrating her new space, filled with the work of fellow local artisans as well as her own, with a party Thursday night (6 to 9pm). Along with bubbly and bites, DIYers can partake in a complimentary Valentine's Day card-making sesh. Even sweeter? Twenty percent off all purchases during the event. Workshops will be held regularly in the new classroom, which also serves as Lennick's studio. We're all about the upcoming Beginning Block Printing for Home Décor event (Feb. 9). // 3043 24th St. (Mission), jennylemons.com
Something scored for a song.
There will be no
something feeling blue at Kinsley James Couture Bridal Salon on Saturday, February 3rd. The Walnut Creek boutique is hosting a ginormous sample sale with designer bridal gowns and accessories slashed as much as 70 percent off regular prices. Translation: Glam dresses (in sizes 8 to 18) from both up-and-coming and established labels (Pallas Couture, Idan Cohen, Limor Rosen and Galia Lahav) will be available for $800 to $7,000. Stylists will be on hand to assist brides-to-be during 40-minute shopping sessions on a first come, first served basis. If you're truly on a mission to score, we recommend early-birding it. // 10am to 3pm, Feb. 3; 1623 Mount Diablo Blvd. (Walnut Creek), kinsleyjames.com
