Running Against the Wind

For all you early bird runners who get up at 6am even when it's chilly out, Lululemon has just the thing to keep you warm and fit this winter: the Down for a Run pullover. Made from Glyde Light fabric (water resistant!) it's super light, warm, and perfect for the windy days ahead. // $168, 1981 Union Street, lululemon.com

For Men Only 

San Francisco-based menswear brand Trumaker has just opened their first store. Located on the fifth floor at 701 Sutter Street, guys can head to the gorgeous showroom to try on shirts, accessories, and brand new suits. A group of professional outfitters are on hand to help you find your signature style with complimentary fitting consultations and expert advice.

Fall Colors for Your Nails

If you're as addicted to nail polish as we are, then you'll love these new fall trends from Lux SF nail salon in Hayes Valley. We're obsessed with the new Deborah Lippmann “She Wolf," a gorgeous gray taupe infused with biotin, green tea, and aucomea. If you need more bang for your buck, check out the Smith & Cult three-pack, which includes Filth Noir, an opaque dark burgundy-plum, Feed The Rich, an opaque dark teal green, and Regret the Moon, an opaque sweet creme. All the polishes are formulated without dibutyl, formaldehyde, or any other chemicals to keep your nails cute and healthy. // 701 Sutter Street, luxsf.net  

Make Your Own Holiday Apparel

This holiday season, don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. On November 15th, The Podolls will host “Indigo and Natural Dye Techniques” with Matt Katsaros, founder of The Flint Outdoors. Matt is well-known in the Bay Area for his handmade aprons, backpacks, and pocket notebooks, and for his talent in the shibori technique, the Japanese art of dyeing. In this workshop he will teach how to dye your own items and how to add a shade of indigo to any closet. // The Podolls, 3985 24th Street, shopthepodolls.com
