In Pane Sight: Piedmont Boutique

Halloween-worthy sparkles and spangles, wigs and bright hues reign in the window at Piedmont Boutique on Haight Street in San Francisco, CA.

In the window at Piedmont Boutique:  Halloween is just around the corner, and, like every year, the pressure is on to bust out your best, most-ass-kickingest costume ever. So, will you bedazzle yourself silly in sequins, channel your alter ego with a colored wig, get seductive in some sexy stockings or throw on some hot pants and be a disco diva? For any of these, look no further than Piedmont Boutique.

No matter how tame, tacky or straight terrifying your taste may be, you are bound to find something to fulfill your Halloween hopes at this Haight shop. Just look for the giant legs in red heels hanging over Haight. You can’t miss it. But if for some reason you do, Piedmont resides at 1452 Haight Street (cross street: Ashbury).

A twisted take on Miss America, perhaps?

Or a wilder version of Wonder Woman?

Another option: think pink.

Runway Recap: Evolution of Fashion 2

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Halloween? If you were picturing scantily-clad men and women, ghouls, and goblins, that’s just part of what was in store for us at Evolution of Fashion event on Saturday. Held at Horatius, the evening showcased the costume-worthy fashions of Bay Area-based designers G B Shrive Designs, Atussa Couture, Miss G Designs, The Glambox, Kaatje Designs, Miss Velvet Cream, Miz B, and Kara Krauss.

Hosted by Mss Vee, the fashion show was action-packed and full of big hair, long lashes, crazy head pieces, stunning runway models, exotic feathers and even a possessed geisha. To top it off, CreateSF was there to hand out Bay Area Fashion Awards to fashion standouts, including Charleston Pierce, who was recognized as the Best Fashion Show Producer and Best Creative Director and Michelle Ruiz, who was awarded Best Fashion Blogger.

Here are a few captured moments from the show:
