Three things I generally can’t get enough of: retro-inspired fashion, deals on local designers and getting seriously geeky about blogging. Good thing there’s a little of each one on the horizon this week. The 2nd annual Lesley Evers Studio Sample Sale in Berkeley means a chance to save up to 80 percent on the designer’s v. cute printed dresses, skirts and tops. In San Francisco, I’ll be speaking at Thursday’s FIDM fashion blogging event with Fashionista Lab, Calivintage, FashionablyAshley and iFabbo. Last but not least, Friday’s Girl Power Hour brings a chance to network and unwind at the same time.
With a holiday weekend looming large, Burning Man in full swing and Fashion Week just around the corner, it’s a quieter week than most on the San Francisco fashion scene. But there are still stylish adventures to be had in the coming days, including a new boutique opening, a trunk show and the launch of an independent fashion line. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
The Oxford Hall building in downtown Berkeley is getting a little more feminine flair, thanks to the opening of the first retail shop from longtime Bay Area accessory company viv&ingrid.
If you’re in the mood to celebrate local style, this is your week to shine, thanks to a bouquet of parties in honor of worthy Bay Area fashion and beauty destinations. And as always, the week ahead brings ample opportunity to shop from local sources. You’ll find the details on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar, and we’ve called out a few of our favorite upcoming San Francisco fashion events below.
If you’ve been looking for an excuse to visit the eco-conscious Berkeley boutique Convert, we’ve got one for you: during the entire month of July, purchase any RVCA item from the store, and you’ll receive two tickets to a private acoustic concert at month’s end featuring professional skateboarder-turned-singer-songwriter, Matt Costa.
