On Wednesday evening the Brit + Co team, in partnership with Close5, held a night of crafting with local bites and drinks. As guests filtered into the Brit + Co Makeshop, the atmosphere was light and creative. Guests were encouraged to declutter their jewelry collections and post to the Close5 app before setting up shop to exhibit their DIY talents. What says it all?

It works double duty as a pop up retail experience where, echoing what happens on the site itself, you can indulge in D.I.Y. and buy crafts all under the same roof.Read More →
Posh parties hit San Francisco and San Diego this week. It’s a chance to mingle with fashion and style bloggers, Poshmark sellers and people who get how stylish secondhand can be. You’ll need to RSVP to attend. After that, dress up and head out. Think of it as a reason to celebrate summer. Because no matter how confounding that drizzle-slash-misty weirdness we’re experiencing an extremely high volume of right now gets in San Francisco, a good outfit scored at a jump-for-joy price can put a girl in beach spirits in no time. RSVP goodness here.
Head to Hayes Valley this weekend to take a gander at the always-lovely latest from a San Francisco designer during the Martha Davis Spring Summer Preview.
A collision of local fashion, nail art, makeup madness and styling talent sums up the Romantically Wired editorial photo shoot from the FiDi’s Salon KaoVey. With avant garde nail creations courtesy of Wild Orchid Nails Studio’s Sindy Mark, fashion by Justin Jamison and Lana Shapiro’s makeup, the result is a heady mix of urban edge, fantasy and real grit.
It may seem early to start thinking about gifts, but is it really? This week brings us into November, and we’re accustomed to the weeks flying by after that. With that in mind, there’s no time like the present (sorry) to start collecting locally-made giftables for the special people on your list. A current fave: bath and body products from San Francisco’s Etta and Billie.
