Snap Judgment: Sasha Maks Vintage Bib Necklace

Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: the weighty appeal of the 1960′s-era Tough Chic gold tone bib necklace, on sale for $89.25 (reg. $105), from San Francisco-based jewelry collection Sasha Maks Vintage. A reason to shop now: 15 percent off all merch in the online shop through Aug. 6.

The Do List: San Francisco Fashion Events June 27-July 4

With a holiday weekend on the horizon, we’re practically punchy with excitement. Good thing we have ample stylish adventures to keep us occupied. As always, you’ll find this week’s top San Francisco fashion events on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar, and we’ve called out a few favorites below.

  • We love a good Tuesday night diversion, and this week Russian Hill’s Beauty Company has one on tap. Stop by the Gemini Jewels Trunk Show that night to view jewelry and accessories from Colleen Mauer, Antonia Sloan and Sasha Maks Vintage. We hear from Sasha that she’ll be bringing new finds that haven’t been shown elsewhere yet, including 60′s and 70′s-era baubles from names such as Trifari, Napier, Kenneth Lane and Givenchy.
  • On Thursday, we’d highly recommend getting the long weekend started early by stepping out in the name of local fashion. Looks from local designers such as Kajan Padraig, Anya Tatarenko, LHC Couture and Alyphyn Industries will be hitting the runway at Madrone Studios during Pret-A-Porter, an annual San Francisco fashion show from the San Francisco Fashion and Merchants Alliance.
  • A benefit for Bay Area-based nonprofit Global Action through Fashion will no doubt draw many eco-minded fashionphiles to SoMa on Thursday night for a symposium and cocktail reception dubbed Justice in the Fashion Industry. Your ticket not only supports the worthy organization backed by ethical fashion advocate Domenica Peterson, but also offers a chance to learn about possible solutions for a more ethical fashion industry during presentations by Lulan Artisans and Gap.
  • Once the weekend rolls around, those interested in the intersection of food and fashion can head east for a trunk show and artist’s reception featuring designer Cari Borja’s Chez Panisse collection, inspired by her internship at the famed restaurant.

You can find details on all of these events and more happening this week on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
